She became a doting “Nanny” to all her beloved grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She enjoyed horror movies, cooking, telling stories, shopping, the beach and singing.
But most of all, she loved and cherished all her family. She spent the last year of her earthly journey in the tender loving care of her daughter Karen, son Duane and his wife Xinia. She went to eternal life joyfully knowing she was greatly loved by all who cared for her and knew her. Patricia is survived by her loving sons William Mills, Jr., and Duane Kevin Mills; her loving daughter, Karen Lee; six grandchildren and twelve great grandchildren; sisters, Katie Majewski, Helen Dunckley, Sharon Lawson, and brother Richard Miller.
