PATRICIA MOBLEY STECK Patricia Mobley Steck was born in Marble Falls, Texas on August 15, 1930. She passed away on August 12, 2018 in Wilmington, North Carolina, just a few days short of her eighty-eighth birthday. Her loving daughter, Rebecca Fawks, was with her when Pat went to her heavenly home and to be with the Lord. Pat was preceded in death by her first husband, Thomas Ogden and by her second husband, Albert Steck. Pat was also preceded in death by her parents John Morgan Mobley ("Paw Paw" to the grandchildren) and Adella Wuneburger Mobley ("Granny" to the grandchildren). Pat was also preceded in death by her seven older brothers and sisters. She is survived by her daughter Rebecca Fawks (Jim) and her sons, Robert Ogden (Barbara), John Steck (Cathleen) and James Steck (Daphne). She is also survived by her six grandchildren and ten great grandchildren. Pat also was known as "Granny" to her grandchildren. During her life, Pat was devoted to and a great blessing to her family and the many friends she made every place she lived. As one of her son Robert's lifelong friends commented to him, "Your mom never met a stranger". He was right in that observation. One of her nieces also commented "Your mom was an incredible woman. She possessed a strength of character and integrity that is rare and precious". Pat was also a tireless worker in her community and church body wherever she lived. When her children were young, they watched their Mom work as hard as possible to make a good life for her family in sometimes difficult circumstances. They watched her successfully use her abundant capabilities, work ethic and faith to keep improving herself both professionally and personally. Pat was a devoted Christian who loved the Lord and trusted the Lord with all of her being, a fact that brings comfort to those who loved her. She was a member of St. Andrew's On-the-Sound Episcopal Church in Wilmington. She spent time in meditation and in prayer for her family and friends and those she knew needed that prayer support. She was given a gift of faith and did all that she could to nurture it. She wanted her faith to be translated into actions that she might be able to positively impact the people around her. Pat was much loved, because she very much loved those around her. She will be missed, but our love for her will continue. Services will be held at St. Andrews On-the-Sound September 8th at 1:00 pm. Reception following. Condolences may be left at
