She is survived by her three daughters, Pamela Q. Combs (Don) of Norfolk, Virginia; Anne Q. DuRant (Bruce) of Charleston, S.C.; and Patricia Q.

Mrs. Quattlebaum graduated from Saluda High School in 1949 and attended Winthrop College. She and Tom were married in 1950 and made their home in Saluda. Patsy served as accountant and bookkeeper for Tom's business, Quattlebaum Heating and Air Conditioning and was an officer with First Citizens Bank for over 20 years retiring in 1996. She was a near life-long member of St. Paul United Methodist Church and enjoyed her church circle serving ably for many years. She loved bridge and her bridge friends. She faithfully played in at least two clubs until illness prevented her hosting or attending the games. She insisted just last month that she hoped to return to play in a week or two when she was feeling a little better. She loved to read and after retirement from the bank, enjoyed always having a good book at hand. She completed her daily crossword puzzles often challenging other family members with her accuracy. She was an avid card and board gamer and as the kids would say GMom always wins! Patsy wished to thank her family and friends for their faithful and loving support throughout her last few months. She and her family appreciated her compassionate daily care givers, Nivea Hill, Lenora Springs, and recently Marasia Graham, as well as, for the services provided by Hospice of South Carolina during her final days. Gifts in Patsy's honor and memory may be directed to St. Paul United Methodist Church, 102 East Butler Avenue, Saluda, S.C. 29138 or to a . Memories and condolences may be shared online at
