Patricia Ardys Herig, formerly known as Patricia Geren/Patricia Taylor, passed away May 26, 2019, from a long battle with Alzheimer's Disease.

Patricia graduated from Sarasota High School and graduated from Stetson University in DeLand. She earned her EdS degree from USF in Education and was a life-long educator.

Four years later she was reacquainted with her high school sweetheart, Bill Herig, and they were married in 1999. Bill passed away in 2004, but they had a few wonderful years together. Patricia's love for music was evident to all who knew her. She was both a pianist and a singer. Her beautiful voice continued throughout her life, touching everyone around her. Patricia will be missed by all who knew her and is survived by her two children, Keith and Kemira, her grandson, Jeremy and many cousins, family and friends.
