Patricia Ann Brown Key was born in Winnfield, Louisiana, on May 6, 1930, to Annie Lee Kelley Brown and Max McLean Brown. She passed away on October 8, 2018, at Christus Highland Hospital after a brief illness.

In 1951, Pat moved to Shreveport after earning her degree in Speech and Drama from Louisiana Tech University. That year she was crowned Miss Holiday in Dixie, Miss Louisiana Tech, Miss Shreveport, and 1st runner up to Miss Louisiana. Pat was a member of Kappa Delta sorority and remained an active alumnus her entire life.

A member of Broadmoor Presbyterian Church since 1954, Pat taught Sunday School, served on the Flower Committee, was a member of the Bell Choir and enjoyed setting up Communion for years. She loved working with the women of the church and was President of the Presbyterian Women and awarded Honorary Life Member.

Pat led a full life of love and service to her family and many friends. She was a gracious hostess and loved celebrating life to its fullest. We all remember "coldbeerglassofwine?"
