Heaven gained a beautiful angel on Thursday, Jan. 7, when Linda Patrick, 75, of Knox, passed away peacefully at home, with her family at her side.

Linda was born on December 31, 1946 to Troy and Nanie Smith in Tiptop, Ky.

On June 15, 1963, Linda married the love of her life, Dorsie Patrick. They spent 57 amazing years loving each other and their life together.

For Linda, her family and faith were everything. She was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother and Christian. She loved and cherished her husband, and family.

Linda was a great cook and an amazing baker. For many years, she single-handedly made holiday feasts for the entire family and often delivered tasty treats to her children's homes.

Linda had a beautiful smile, a kind heart and a generous and playful spirit. She loved participating in family fun activities: Card games, Pictionary, bunco, water fights and corn hole matches were among some of her favorites. It was a lot of fun to watch her compete and to hear her laughter during the games.

In addition to being a wife, mother and homemaker, Linda also worked outside the home. She retired from Rockwell Window Company in Knox after many years of dedicated service.

Linda also enjoyed spending time with her siblings, which she considered her best friends.

Linda's door was always open to her family. A pot of coffee could be brewing in minutes and enjoyed with a homemade treat, laughter and conversation.

Of all the gifts that life has to offer, a mother's love is the greatest of them all.

Linda is survived by her children: Shanell (Tom) Wagers, Tony (Cheryl) Patrick, Roger (Peggy) Patrick and Glenn Patrick, all of Knox; nine grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren. Siblings: Earl (Sandy) Smith, of Knox, D.J. Fox of Port Richey, Florida, Charles Smith, of Port Richey, Florida, Dulcine (John) Hunnicutt, of Knox and Barb (Larry) Robinson, of Knox.

Linda was preceded in death by her husband, Dorsie Patrick, a grandson, Tyler Patrick, her parents Troy and Nanie Smith, siblings, Troy Smith Jr., Matelyn Tolson and Thelma Minix, and a sister-in-law, Sandy Smith.

Visitation will be held Monday at 11 A.M.. at Braman and Son Memorial Chapel in Knox, until time of services at noon.

Burial will be in Crown Hill Cemetery in Knox, immediately following the services.
