Donald, Patsy & Family,
Thinking of you .....my heart grieves with you.
After reading the tributes and memories, she blessed many who knew her as teacher, friend, & mother! May those memories be as treasures in your hearts forever!
Donald and family, So sorry to hear about the loss of Pat. My parents moved to Ross Trail in 1954 when I was an infant, so I grew "up down the street" from your family, and my mom and Pat were friends. I had just driven on Ross Trail last week and looked over at your beautiful corner lot and wondered how your mom was doing. So sorry to hear of her loss. I remember her as always being funny and pleasant with a great smile. My thoughts are with you at this difficult time.
Donald and Patsy,
So very sorry for your loss. Both your parents were wonderful, friendly and kind, Donald.
Prayers for your family.
Donald and family,
I have such good memories of your mom and our neighborhood. Pat and I walked by your house every day in first grade. She was always so kind to me ... My prayers go out to you and yours... Cherish the memories.
God Bless, Pam Simpson Matthews

Pat was a dear friend of my mothers for years. My entire family loved her. I still have a few of the doll clothes she made for me. She will be truly missed by all that knew her.
Donald, so sorry to hear about the loss of your mother. Jan Callaway Wood
My prayers are with the family. I will always remember our trips together with sister Emy....we had a great time.
Mrs. Deere was my honors History teacher at Lamar and we just loved her! She made learning fun with lots of great memories. She also lived down the street on Ross Trail and was my ride to school. Loved her.
Mrs. Deere was one of my favorite teachers at Lamar High School. Later at UTA, I was fortunate to work and get to know her Donald, Coach Deere to me...he gave me one of my nicknames that I still use today-Lsquare. It's comforting to know they are together again for all eternity. Prayers for comfort and strength to Donald Jr. and family.

Thank you, Mrs. Deere for being a great influence on my life. I had Mrs. Deere all three years at Lamar and I was also her teacher's aid when I was a senior. She will be missed.
I will miss visiting her at her apartment and seeing her comical response when she hears what's on the menu. I especially miss her smile and kindness. It's easy to see why her family stays close together. God bless you all. - Bonnie
