Pat entered into eternal rest on February 21, 2015 at the age of 64 at Albert Einstein Hospital, Philadelphia, PA. Pat was raised in a loving family. Her father and mother raised her to be a warm and caring mother. The youngest daughter of seven children, she was taught that family is everything and without your family you have nothing. As a child she grew up in Mount Olive AME Church, Woodrow, attending Sunday school and playing the piano. She made sure her son Travis understood the values of church and family. She frequently visited South Carolina with her son who received the same values from her mother and siblings as she did. After graduating from Dennis High School in 1967, she worked in Sumter Law offices then headed to New York. Pat later arrived in Philadelphia and worked at Franklin Simon. She served a long career in the banking industry to include Bank of America, PNC, Continental Bank and Bryn Mawr Trust. Pat was enthusiastic about serving in the church and willing to assist at the drop of a hat. She was an active member of New Bethel AME Church serving in many capacities to include Trustee Board Pro-tem, Sanctuary Choir and President of Serving our Seniors Ministry (SOS), member of Adult Sunday School, the Womenís Fellowship, Lay Organization and recently joined the Missionary Society. She was recently appointed Church Conference Secretary. An avid sports fan, she loved her Philadelphia Eagles, watching tennis, playing pinochle and active team leader in the local bowling league. She is survived by her son, Travis (Madalena) of Belgium; and sister, Gardenia (Bennie) of Philadelphia, PA. She adored and took delight in visiting her two grandchildren, Kashaya and Travis Junior (TJ) in Belgium. Keeping up with their facebook and facetime post was her favorite pastime. She also leaves to cherish her memories a host of cousins, nieces, nephews and dear friends. She was preceded in death by her sister, Emma Jane Davis and four brothers, Steven, Morris, James and John Wilson.
