Sioux Falls - Patricia (Patty) Ann Conway died on March 13, 2020, at Ava's House in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, surrounded by loving family.

She returned to Sioux Falls and began a career at Northwestern Bell Telephone Company. While working there she met her husband, Acie W. Matthews. In 1968, the two were married in Sioux City, Iowa.
