The Guest Book is expired.
She was born in Roswell to Ruben Dimas and Mary A. Marquez Dimas.
Patsy Dimas was a beautiful loving caring wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, sister, aunt and friend. Patsy loved spending time with her husband, children, and grandchildren. She loved fishing, gardening, hunting and most of all her Zumba class. She loved cooking for all her family and always welcomed everyone.
She was known for her big bright smile and laughter, and always positive attitude. She loved get-togethers with her family and friends and was always that individual that had everyone laughing. As an employee of Buena Vista Eye Care she made a lot of friends and even acquired some as grandpa, grandma, mom, dad, prima, primo, brother and sister. All of the staff members were recognized as family members by her. She loved to have her children's friends and neighborhood kids over for visiting and to share a meal. Numerous kids wanted to be adopted by her; a lot of them calling her "Mom" into adulthood. Animals were always coming around to be fed by her and a lot of the time they stayed. She leaves behind her loving Chihuahua, Chico, whom she thought of as a family member.
A very important aspect of her life was devotion to serving Christ and spending time with her Christian family. She was always encouraging everyone to love, serve and obey God. It is her love for God and Christ that guided her through the good and hard times of her life. Her devotion and faith in God made her struggle with cancer easier on her and her family.
