"Patricia Ann Poundstone (Limes), who lived her life with kindness toward others and devotion to her family and friends, died March 25, 2016, in O’Fallon, Missouri. Born to Ernest Limes and Agnes Limes (Veasey) on July 9, 1922, in Kansas City, Missouri, Pat (as she was known by most of her family and friends) was preceded in death by her husband David Poundstone.

The funeral Mass will be 10 a.m. Monday, April 4, 2016 at St. Andrew Catholic Church, Fort Worth. Interment will follow in DFW National Cemetery.

Pat and Dave met at Colorado A&M (Colorado State University) in Fort Collins, Colorado and married on July 17, 1943, at Camp Blanding, Florida, in Military Chapel 6. After living at a few locations during the war and afterwards, Pat and her family moved to Borger, Texas in 1947. Pat lived her life with grace and energy. In addition to her roles as wife and mother, Pat was active with St. John Catholic Church in Borger, particularly in the Altar Society. With her husband, Dave, she also volunteered with many local organizations, including a group she helped start in the late 60’s-- RUN, Racial Understanding Now. She wrote a weekly column concerning the Diocesan Council of Catholic Women for the Amarillo diocesan paper, the West Texas Register. She was active in the Texas Catholic Conference, Church Women United, and the National Council of Catholic Women. She was inspired by Vatican Council II and shared her love of God and the Catholic Church with her family. She found time to make special memories for her children, including making homemade pies, cakes, and cookies. Her Sunday fried chicken dinner was a family favorite. She was an avid reader and had a keen interest in current events. During her lifetime, she lived through the Great Depression, World War II, the Moon Landing, 9/11 and many other major national and international events. Growing up during the Depression in a Colorado children’s home, and later St. Scholastica High School in Canon City, Colorado, she developed a lifelong love of learning. She encouraged her children in their aspirations.

In 1973, Pat and Dave moved to Stavanger, Norway when Dave’s job with Phillips Petroleum took him there. Pat relished the chance to explore a new culture and travel. She learned Norwegian, took classes at the community college, wrote a column for the local English-language newspaper, the Stavanger Aftenblad , and had a weekly radio broadcast in which she translated the local news into English. She served as president of the Petroleum Wives Club. Pat and Dave retired to Fort Worth in 1984, where they took up new challenges and enjoyed being closer to family. They were active members of St. Andrew Parish. Pat was a lector and directed the R.C.I.A. program for several years. Pat and Dave loved to travel and took many trips across the United States in their RV and to foreign lands with Elder Hostel.

Pat is survived by her children and their families, including David Poundstone (Rita) of Denver, CO; Catherine Poundstone of San Francisco, CA; Mary Miller (Ken) of Lake St. Louis, MO; Patricia Beans (Michael) of Bonita Springs, FL; Thomas Poundstone of Walnut Creek, CA; Elise Alexander (Darren) of Fort Worth, TX. She is also survived by eight grandchildren, Matthew Poundstone, Claire Soto, Leanne Mar, Jenny Kohl, Michael Miller, Kristin Miller, James Beans, and David Alexander and five great grandchildren, Johnny and Katie Kohl, Elsa Poundstone and Alex and Max Soto."
