Even though she was born in Pickens County, Moundville was her home. She worked at Moundville Mercantile and retired from Zildjian Percussion.

Patty was the best known as Maw Maw Patty to her five grandchildren and her nine great grandchildren. She spent many hours being a kid with them; dancing, playing games, hopscotching, chasing bumblebees, pretending to be animals and anything else they wanted to do. Lots of great memories were made at Maw Maw's house that everyone will cherish forever. She had a lot of love for all of her family and they all loved her and will miss her tremendously.
