Patsy left this world unexpectedly Monday, April 16th to be with her beloved husband Les. Patricia ‘Patsy’ was born February 8th 1952 to Ella and John Pickett in Billings. After graduating from Billings Senior High School in 1970, she married her high school sweetheart on September 4th 1970. Making Billings her home, she worked for School District #2 for many years and finished her career at the Heights Walmart.Loving arts and crafts, she mastered any new crafting project she tried. Among her talents were beading, blankets, and stained glass, but her favorite was painting. She was magical with a sewing machine and there wasn’t anything she couldn’t crochet. Patsy was a fantastic dessert maker. Her two specialties included flat apple pie and cherry delight, which were always a special treat.She had always wanted to travel, and in 2016 she took her first trip to Mexico. Basking in the sun on the beach the first day, she was already planning her second trip. She returned in March 2017 spending a week in Puerto Vallarta.
She is preceded in death by her husband Les, along with her parents Ella and John. Patsy is survived by her brother and sister, three children, six grandchildren, five great grandchildren and her two babies Mattie and Midas. She also leaves behind the neighborhood kids, Diana, Ken, Mickey, Loretta, Mike, Patty, Randy and the Buss family.
As per her request, no funeral service is planned. Instead, plant some flowers and have a margarita. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the cancer support foundation
