Patricia Howard Obituary

Alvord ~ Patricia Elaine Howard, 57, went to be with our Lord Saturday, November 11th, 2023.

Memorial Service is 12 Noon Tuesday, December 12, 2023 at First Baptist Church in Alvord.

Patty was born April 20, 1966 to Jess & Helen (Reynolds) Hill in Neosho, Missouri. She was united in marriage June 9th, 1995 to James Albert Howard in Big Spring, Texas. Patty was a retired after many years in Dental Insurance Claims. She was a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend to many who will miss her dearly.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Jess & Helen Hill; her daughter, Kennedy Howard; a brother, Dan Zoller; sister-in-law, Paula Howard; father-in-law, Bob Moore, and Jim Howard.

Those left behind to cherish her memories are her husband, James Howard of Alvord; 3 daughters, Kandice Fambro of San Antonio; Katie Howell of Sanger, and Kayla Davis & husband Aaron of Ft. Worth ; 5 grandchildren, Cerelia, Maggie, Parker, Adelyn, and Rayden; 2 sisters, Audrey Bayes & husband Eddie, and Kim Plew & husband Gary; her brother, Matt Hill; her sister-in-law, Karen Bonham and husband John; her brother-in-law, Scott Howard; mother-in-law, Gladys Moore and mother-in-law, Elaine Howard; numerous nieces, nephews and a host of friends.

On July 8, 2018, Patty and her husband James were baptized in the name of Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior; and became members of the First Baptist Church of Alvord. She enjoyed preparing meals for the Meals on Wheels ministry, Kids Pop, Mercy Committee and the Community Thanksgiving lunch.

The good Lord blessed with many gifts and was born with a servant’s heart. She loved working with her hands. Patty would spend hours working on jigsaw puzzles with her granddaughters. Probably her greatest gift was innovation. She saw the world through a different prism than most. Patty loved to sew and repurpose items that many would discard. In some circles she was known as “Crafty Patty”. There is no doubt that she used her God given gifts to enrich those around her and in turn glorified Him for what He had provided.
