Patsy Ann Mayes

Patsy Ann Mayes Wolfe Penick was called home to the Lord on, Thursday, October 19, 2023, in Tyler, Texas. Born July 7, 1941, in Beaumont Texas. Patsy’s formative years were spent in Venezuela and Mexico, where she developed a deep-rooted love for travel and adventure that would become a defining aspect of her life. From the lush landscapes of Indonesia to the bustling streets of Chicago, she embraced every new experience with an open heart. Along this journey, she forged meaningful friendships and created cherished memories. 

One of Patsy’s greatest joys was her love for music. Some of her fondest memories were made while singing in a women’s choir in Jakarta, where she shared her passion for music and created lasting bonds with fellow musicians. Her creative spirit extended to her love for sewing, where she crafted beautiful needlework pieces that were a testament to her artistic talent.

Patsy is survived by her two loving daughters, Lynne Wolfe and Laura Fiffick; her sons-in-law Jon Weirauch and Scott Mathis; her grandsons, Andrew, and Evan Fiffick; her brother Glen Mayes and wife Glenda. Their love and support were a source of strength and happiness throughout her life.

Patsy’s distinct sense of humor will be warmly cherished, and we take comfort in the knowledge that she has found peace and been reunited with her departed loved ones. Those who held her dear will greatly miss Patsy and keep her fondly in their memories.

If you would like to make a donation, in lieu of flowers, please make donations to The Hospice of East Texas, where Patsy and her daughters received special care and support.

A visitation will be held from 5pm until 7pm, on Monday, October 23, 2023, in the chapel of Sterling Funeral Home, 1201 S. Main Street in Anahuac. Family and friends are invited to join us in remembering her.  A graveside service and committal will be held at 11am in Wallisville Cemetery, in Wallisville, Texas.
