Patricia Ann Childress

December 7, 1957 — November 8, 2021

Patricia Ann Childress, daughter of Thomas Roets and Sarah (Calvert) Roets, was born December 7, 1957, in Topeka, Kansas, and departed this life on November 8, 2021, at Ozarks Medical Center in West Plains, Missouri. She was 63 years, 11 months, and 1 day of age.

She was born in Kansas and moved to Seymour in 1981. She was a certified nurse’s aide and worked at Ozark Nursing and Care Center in Ozark for many years.

In her spare time, she enjoyed watching her grandkids at their school activities and sporting events. She also liked reading, gardening, playing dominos, and taking care of her dogs.

Patricia was a loving and caring person who would help anyone. She was raised Catholic, and we are at peace knowing she is in the presence of Jesus in heaven.

She was preceded in death by her parents and a sister, Francis Pitchford.

Patricia is survived by two daughters, Crystal Sartor and husband, Jerry, and Scarlett Smith and husband, Shawn, all of Mountain Grove; son, B.J. Hicks and wife, Melody, of Fordland; four grandchildren, Weston Smith and wife, Caitlin, Maverick Smith, Gavin Sartor and Rylee Sartor; one great-grandchild, Drennan Sartor; longtime companion, Rocky Holloway, and his daughters, Amanda and Roxanne all of Ava; brother, Thomas Roets and wife, Rosemary, of Seymour; three sisters, Brenda Spencer of Marshfield, Julie Nelson of Aurora, and Mary Peltier and husband, Mike, of Las Vegas, Nevada; several nieces, nephews, other relatives and many friends.

Patricia was a loving mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, companion, sister, aunt, and a caring neighbor and friend. We celebrate her life and will always cherish the special times we had together.
