Before she became ill, Patty was very active, and enjoyed challenging herself, by running in multiple races. She loved working in her yard, and playing with her animals. Wine tasting made her happy, especially if she could enjoy a glass here or there with a friend or family member. Reading was one of her favorite pastimes, and she has been known to continue reading, even while maintaining a conversation. She loved quilting, embroidery, knitting and crocheting things — She always kept her family warm. She enjoyed cooking with her grandkids, and enjoyed writing them letters when she was sick. She loved life!
Patty is survived by her husband, Paul Lewellen; her three children and their companions, Tia Lewellen and Renee Leach, Matthew and Jenny Lewellen, Nathan and Penny Lewellen; her 10 grandchildren, Cody, Brendan, Toby, Kaleb, Hannah, Harley, Caleb, Keaton, Chloe and Emma; and her sister, Pam McCaskey. Also surviving are two children who have grown to call her mom during their young impressionable lives, Michael Richie and Kathleen Wong. Lastly, her surviving animals, who we would never forget to mention, her three cats, Nikki, Chloe and Teddy, and one dog, Kota.
Patty’s life will be celebrated during a small memorial service beginning at 1:30 p.m. Sunday at Pisgah Christian Church, 503 N. 600 West, Logansport.
