Pat was born and raised in OKC by C.O. & Mary Powell. She was a graduate at Central H.S. and was a book keeper by trade until she was 82. She lived her life by her faith in God. Pat was a loving and caring sister. She was the aunt who was more like your 2nd Mom. She was the ‘in-law” you wanted to go see on holidays. She was bamaw, a grandmother and great-grandmother that had no boundaries for her love of them. And she had great friends that loved her, and were cherished by her. And she was a mom that loved us no matter what; a mom our friends all wished was theirs but was not. She lived her life always giving, never wanting to receive. You are so loved Mom and will be so missed by us all.
She was preceded in death by her parents; sister Roberta; brother Jim; and niece Linda Lou. Pat is survived by her sister Mary Williams, sons, Gary Priest and Burrel Matlock Jr (Jacky); daughter Myrna Matlock; grandkids Dusty and Kristina Matlock, Nora Priest, Sam Blakley (Selena); Great-grandkids, Kailey Vernon, Kane & Libby Matlock, Ann, Ruth, Jason, & Micah Blakley; and many loving nieces, nephews, and friends. Services to celebrate her life will be 1:30 PM, Tuesday, February 20, 2018 at Springdale Baptist Church with burial to follow at Resurrection Memorial Cemetery.
