On September 14, 1942, she was united in marriage to Harry Pinkney Asher, and to this union one son was born.
Her parents, and a brother, James Cardwell, preceded her in death.
Patricia is survived by her loving husband of sixty years, Harry, of the home; a son and daughter-in-law, Leo and Pat Asher, of Seymour, Missouri; two granddaughters, Diana Hodge, and Teresa Asher; two great-grandchildren, Kevin and Katrina Dycus; a brother and sister-in-law, Bob and Virginia Cardwell, of Ozark, Missouri; a sister and brother-in-law, Carol and Frank Smith, of Wichita, Kansas; several nieces and nephews; as well as a host of other relatives and friends.
She was born near Mountain Grove, Missouri, and then lived the rest of her life in Seymour. After she and Harry were married, they made their home in the Seymour community, and lovingly raised their son. Besides being a devoted homemaker to her husband and family, Patricia also taught in area rural schools for ten years. She later taught cooking classes for the University of Missouri Extension for about eleven years.
Patricia was an active member of First Christian Church of Seymour since 1947, and served as church pianist for fifty years. She also taught the Youth Sunday School Class.
In her spare time she enjoyed doing craft projects of all kinds, growing beautiful flowers in her garden, and cooking for her friends and church members. She also liked riding in Model A Fords and other old cars. Her family was very important to her and she especially enjoyed her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Patricia was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, and aunt, and was a caring neighbor and friend. She will be fondly remembered and greatly missed, but the wonderful memories she created for her family and friends will live on forever.
