Patricia was born on August 14, 1931 to Phillip B. and Ruby Duffee in Atlanta, Georgia.

In Blairsville, Pat served as an instructor with special needs adults at Trackrock Industries. She was active in her faith and a member of Vinings First Baptist Church.
Pat loved cooking for her family. Her home was full for Holiday and Sunday dinners even though, she "wasn't going to do it again next week"! They will always remember the taste of her famous fish, grits, and hush puppies. With patience and a steady hand, she would sit in her chair and quilt or craft the most beautiful items to give away to family and friends. Pat was always looking for her next project. In her younger days, She grew big gardens, flowers, and plants- some for beauty, but most to can or freeze for later. She loved visiting the beach and going to the Dollar Tree. She was funny, always spoke her mind, and always gave advice on what you should do and specifically how to do it!
