Higgs on December 30, 1984. Pat is survived by her three siblings, three sons and their spouses, four grandchildren, and two great grandchildren.

They were members of the Walnut Hills Baptist Church for all of their years together in Williamsburg, VA. Pat spent most of her life in Virginia and reveled in its beauty.

Pat was a kind and gentle soul; all who knew her will miss her dearly.
