Patricia Jack Driver, 84, passed away peacefully on February 09, 2018, surrounded by her loving husband and family. We take comfort in knowing that she is at peace and rejoicing in Heaven with her family and friends. Pat was born and reared in Quanah, Texas. She attended Quanah High School, class of 1951. She went on to attend Baylor University, class of 1955, and graduated Cum Laude with a Degree in Accounting. Shortly after graduation, she married her hometown sweetheart, Elvis Doyle Driver. They recently celebrated their 62nd Wedding Anniversary. On her life's journey, Pat called several places in Texas "Home", including Quanah, Waco, Lubbock, Corpus Christi, Sherman, Lakeway and Conroe. She also loved living overseas in London and Singapore. Professionally, she taught high school short hand, held accounting positions with CPA firms and helped run the family Insurance Agency. Personally, she was a wonderful wife and mother, as well as a doting "GaGa" to her 5 amazing grandchildren. Pat loved Doyle's home cooking, the Cowboys and the Astros, hunting, fishing and playing baseball, especially with her father, Jack. She had a passion for traveling and making lifelong friends wherever she ventured. Her love of good competition led Pat to win a Women's 9 Hole Golf Championship in her local country club. Never shying away from anything, she met every challenge head on. A perfect example was learning to drive a stick shift on the "wrong" side of the road while living in England. Pat was the ultimate vacation planner, taxi driver, little league baseball coach, cheerleader, grammar wizard, grandchild babysitter and make up model! During Patricia's final days, she was surrounded by her loving family: Her devoted husband, Elvis Doyle Driver, two loving sons, Derek Driver (Amy Driver) and Tony Driver (Dennis Maloney). She was blessed to have five adoring grandchildren: Tate, Teddi, Natalie, Davis and Summer. She was greeted in Heaven by her mother and father, Dolly Perryman Brazil and John Thomas Brazil (Jack). Helping to celebrate her Life, her wonderful nieces, nephews and cousins will also be attending her service. The Celebration of Her Life will be at the First Baptist Church, Quanah, Texas, 601 S. Main Street at 1pm Saturday, February 24, 2018, with Dr. David Smith officiating. Her viewing will be from noon until 1pm that same day. Interment will immediately follow her service at the Quanah Memorial Cemetery. Special thanks to Kathi and Mike Beimer, Janis Singletary and Lyndi Shadbolt for their help in planning Pat's Life Celebration. All Heaven rejoices today! Our Patricia is finally home!
