Patricia Arburthnot (Rogers)
Patricia Gay Arburthnot, 79, of Winnsboro TX, went home to be with the Lord the morning of March 20, 2018. Gay was predeceased by her husband of 52 years, George “Doc’” Arburthnot; her parents Herman and Ivera Rogers; her brothers, Bill Rogers and Roger Rogers; and sisters Shirley “Sister” Ashabranner and Karen Powell.
She is survived by her sister Cynthia Decker, her brothers Mike Rogers and Scott Rogers, and her six children: Glen Williams of Llano TX, Sheila Fender of Sulphur Springs TX, Tammie Bull of Jacksonville AR, Linda Hodges of Mount Vernon TX, Cory Arburthnot of Winnsboro TX, and Gracie Brown of Crestview FL.
Gay was a loving grandmother to fourteen grandchildren: Jill and Olivia Williams; Matthew Butler, Tasha Byrne, and Shaun Fender; Nathan Rhyne and Candice Howard; Ashlynne, Timothy, Brittiany, and Triston Hodges; Cody Blair; Kain and Kason Brown; and ten great-grandchildren with one on the way.
Gay was a devoted, loving wife, mother, and grandmother. She worked as a nurses-aid in a nursing home for several years until she married George and traveled the world with him during his 21-year military career. She served faithfully behind the scenes of her husband and her country. She enjoyed the outdoors, collecting feathers and flowers with her grand-kids and gardening her Rose of Sharons. Gay loved spending her time with her kids and grandchildren and watching them grow. She will be greatly missed by those who loved her and the lives she touched along the way. There will be a private family memorial service. In lieu of flowers please donate to Samaritan’s Purse in her honor.
