Patricia Jean Swecker ‘Pat’ Tice


April 1, 1935-April 29, 2021

Pat was born in Windel, West Virginia, to Meda and William Swecker, grew up in the Tygart Valley, West Virginia, with two sisters, Helen Krebs and Peg Delaney and one brother, Philip.

Her life in the country taught her hard work and determination.

She is survived by her three children, John Hise Jr., Candy Patsy and Richard Hise; two grandchildren, Stephanie Wall and Mathew Hise; six stepchildren, Denzil, Dan, Fritz, David, Jennifer and Sandra Tice; and two great grandchildren, Noah and Ashlynn Wall.

She was fortunate to share her love with two caring men, John Hise Sr. and Fred Tice.

Pat worked throughout her life as a care taker for the elderly, a receptionist and at a dry-cleaning business.

After her sister passed, she came back to Thomas, West Virginia, where her daughter, Candy, and son-in-law, Glenn Patsy, “her third son,” managed her care. She resided in Cortland Acres Nursing Home, where she was cared for and loved. Pat had no wants other than for her children to be happy. So, after 86 wonderful years she rejoins her family and looks down on us with a smile know that she gave us all a little piece of her!

A memorial will be held in Florida, where her children reside.

In lieu of flowers please send donations to Cortland Acres Nursing Home or favorite charity i.e., Best Friends Animal Sanctuary, in her name.
