Patricia D. HORTON
HAMPTON - Patricia Diane Houston Horton went to be with her Heavenly Father on July 20, 2011. She was born to the late Young Vernon and Charlotte Houston on Sept. 16, 1946.
She graduated in the first graduating class of Kecoughtan High School in 1965. During her senior year of high school she met the love of her life, Bobby Horton. They were married on Dec. 21, 1966, and were happily married for 43 years until Bobby's death two years ago.
In 1975 Pat and her husband built their home in their beloved Fox Hill where all the roots of the Horton family ran deep. The greatest joys of her life were her two sons, Robbie and Ryan; and her two grandchildren, Kaitlyn and Trevor. She devoted her life to her family and to her church.
Over the years Pat and Bobby enjoyed traveling up and down the East coast with their lifelong friends Jimmy and Peggy Moore. They had a deep interest in genealogy, researching the family history of many generations.
Pat was a member of Fox Hill Central United Methodist Church, the Fidelis Sunday School Class, and the Shepherd's group. She was instrumental in initiating a crafting group at church. She took great pleasure in being a member of the Foxie Ladies of the Red Hat Society.
Pat was preceded in death by her husband, Robert E. Horton Sr.
She is survived by her son, Robert "Robbie" E. Horton Jr. and his wife, Joann, Ryan P. Horton and his wife, Tami; grandchildren, Kaitlyn and Trevor Horton.
The family would like to extend heartfelt thanks and appreciation to Dr. Kruger of Virginia Oncology Associates, Cindy Mellish and all of the staff of Personal Touch Home Care and Hospice, and their many church friends who loved and cared for Pat during her illness.
A funeral service will be conducted at 11 a.m. Saturday, July 23, 2011, at Fox Hill Central United Methodist Church by the Rev. Wayne C. Moore with interment to follow in Clark Cemetery. The family will receive friends from 6 to 8 p.m. at R. Hayden Smith Funeral Home.
