Patricia Calhoun Sherman

AGE: 81 • Sparta, TN

Patricia (Pat, Patsy, Toots, Tootsie) Calhoun Sherman, passed away on January 21, 2017 in Sparta, Tennessee. She was 81 years young.

Pat was born August 27, 1935 at Balboa Naval Hospital, San Diego, California, to Ruth Marie Stebbin Calhoun and Wesley George Calhoun.

She is preceded in death by her parents, brother and husband, George Sherman Jr.

For the first nine years of her life Pat was a Navy dependent living in California, Florida and New Jersey. Her father, Chief Boatswain Wesley Calhoun was an integral part of the Navy's blimp community. When Patsy was nine her father died in a blimp accident and from then on she was raised by her mother in Lakehurst, New Jersey.

Pat's passion for most of her life has been animals, specifically horses and various canines. Pat raised and showed horses and, at times, her home was a sanctuary for stray animals including wild life. The birds will sorely miss her especially the twenty plus hummingbirds living around her front porch all summer. Her favorite dog was a Pit Bull/Boxer miss she name Cleo who picked Pat to live with. Pat also loved the earth. It showed in her huge garden each year as well as the variety of plants and flowers on her front porch and in the house.

There will be no official service for Patricia but if you wish please make a donation to the White County, TN Animal Shelter or the Shelter of your choice.
