Patricia Ann "Pat" Avery, 72, of Oklahoma City, OK, died Dec. 2. She was born Aug. 24, 1933, in Fort Dodge, IA, to Richard and Velma (Carlstrom) Terpstra. After graduating from Theodore Roosevelt High School in Des Moines, IA, in 1951, she attended Cincinnati (OH) Bible College, before transferring her junior year to Lincoln (IL) Christian College, where she received her bachelor's degree in Christian education. On Aug. 16, 1958, in Des Moines, she married James H. Avery, and together they shared more than 47 years of marriage, raising four children, all while faithfully serving in God's kingdom. In 1968, she moved from Clinton, IA, to the Oklahoma City area, where the family has been active in the community and served in ministry for the past 37 years. She was a loving and devoted wife, mother, grandmother, and friend. Alongside her husband, she faithfully served the Lord fulfilling numerous positions and duties as pastor's wife until her death. She was preceded in death by her sister, Donna Rae Myers. In addition to her husband, Jim, she is survived by her children, Michael William Avery, Brent Richard Avery, Leigh Ann Moffatt, and Christopher James Avery; two sisters, Mary Jo Ruppert and Gretchen Kay Patterson; and five grandchildren.
