Patricia Anne Akers
August 9, 1940 - May 19, 2012
Patricia Anne Akers, 71, of Nampa was called home to her heavenly father on Saturday, May 19, 2012, with her family by her side.
A memorial service will be held at 3:00 p.m. on Thursday, May 24th at Cross of Christ Lutheran Church, 11655 W. McMillan Rd., Boise.
Pat was born on August 9, 1940, in Bakersfield, CA, to Mary and Leo Rayburn. She graduated in 1958 from Bell High School in Bell, CA, and moved to Idaho in 1968 with her son, Michael. She married the love of her life, John (Butch) Akers, on June 14, 1969, at Zion Lutheran Church in Nampa. They were blessed with one daughter, Kelli.
Pat retired in 2006 from Industrial Ventilation in Nampa. She loved traveling with her family and enjoyed many trips to Las Vegas, the Oregon Coast, and going on cruises. She especially enjoyed her many trips to Disneyland with her grandsons. She also liked cooking and scrapbooking, and she became a huge football fan cheering on the Boise State Broncos.
You could always tell if Pat was present in a room full of people because you could always hear her joyful laughter. She had an off the wall humor and had no problem calling "a spade a spade". There is no doubt about her being loved, and now missed, by all who knew her. Above all, she was a woman with a deep love for her Savior, family, friends, and church family.
Pat is survived by her husband of 43 years, John; daughter and son-in-law, Kelli and Jody Goodman; and grandsons, Brandon and Cameron Goodman. She was preceded in death by both of her parents and her son, Michael Lee Stokley.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Cross of Christ Lutheran Church.
