Patricia I. Brown, 77, of Philipsburg, loving wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother and friend, went to her eternal resting place in Heaven on October 26, 2019. She was surrounded by her family when the Lord took her hand. She greeted everyone with a smile and was a shining example of what love should be. Our lives will be forever changed by her absence. Her hugs and her love for her family was all consuming, as she loved with her entire being. We will be eternally blessed to have had her in our lives and will thank God for that every day. In her last days she spoke of her house being almost finished in Heaven and spoke of how beautiful it was. It gives her family great peace knowing she got a glimpse of her eternity. Her love of flowers, Monarchs, birds and birdhouses has been passed down to the next generation and we will fondly think of her daily. If you have read this far, our family’s request, in lieu of flowers, is that you hold your loved ones tight and show your love daily to those you hold dear. That is what our precious momma, mom, and Grammy would have wanted; one person at a time, let’s show love. Born June 27, 1942 in Philipsburg, she was a daughter of the late Ai & Viola (Schmoke) Teats. She graduated in 1961 from Cooper Township High School and retired from Jostens, where she worked in the camera department. She was a member of the First Baptist Church in Philipsburg.
