Patricia (Patty) Rae Stokes Plummer was born Monday January 7, 1935 in Camas, WA. As the sun was rising on the morning of December 31, 2015 she slipped away peacefully after a short but brave battle with cancer (exactly 1 week shy of her 81 st birthday). Her loving family surrounded her as she went to join our Lord.

Patty spent most of her youth in Vancouver, WA. She was active early in life as a swimmer, drum majorette, and thespian. Many of her best friends from her youth remain her friends to this day. She graduated from Vancouver High School in 1953 with a 4.0 gpa and then attended Clark Junior College where she received her Associate Arts degree. After marrying in 1956 she and husband George moved several times with Shell Oil before settling in Conroe, TX in 1973. She jumped right into the River Plantation lifestyle enjoying tennis, golf, bridge and even served in the Volunteer Fire Dept! After her "1 st career" as full-time mother, she went to work for Conroe Independent School District as an aide, substitute teacher and finally as an administrative secretary before retiring in 1995 to travel with George who had retired in 1993. She loved travelling - cruises with her husband, family, and friends, reunion trips with lifelong friends, and plane & road trips throughout the United States. She also loved volunteering in what free time she had with the First Presbyterian Church and other organizations she belonged to throughout the years.

Besides actively participating in many sports she was also a passionate spectator and supporter of college swimming, football, baseball and volleyball. She was a fierce competitor (ask anyone who was on the other side of the net or across the card table) but also loved cheering and coaching from the sidelines especially if 1 of her 3 children or grandson was participating. She loved being captain of her jackrabbit tennis team and serving as unofficial team Mother to players of all ages.

Patty was a loving woman full of laughter, loyalty and positive energy who loved generously and was in turn loved by so many - friends became family throughout her life. She was the first one with a helping hand to lend, arms to comfort, and wine to share. She loved hostessing endless parties over the years, gathering people from the various circles in which she & George revolved. She will be missed dearly by so many.

Patty is survived by her husband of 59 1/2 years George, their daughter Lori Plummer; son Anthony & his wife Diana; son Andrew Plummer; grandson Aidan Plummer; brother-in-law James Plummer & wife Arlene (Gresham, OR), brother-in-law Arlie Brown (Milwaukie, OR) and numerous beloved nieces and nephews.

A memorial service will be held Saturday, January 16, 2016 at 1:00 pm at First Presbyterian Church Conroe officiated by Reverend Dr. David Green.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to First Presbyterian Church of Conroe or to the Rose of Texas Hospice in honor of Patty.

Thank you Patty, Mom, Dear for your light that shone so bright on so many!
