Patricia Jean (Dennard) Drysdale was born in Gainesville Texas on May 12th, 1938 to James and Lillie Dennard. She was preceded in death by her husband, Stephen Kent Drysdale. She is survived by daughter Vicki Milar and husband Tim, sons Greg Drysdale and wife Sherry, Andy Drysdale and wife Taylor, sister Wanda Dennard Keller, and brother Bob Dennard. She was blessed with three grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren and five nieces and one nephew.

Patricia and family moved from Gainesville Texas to Pilot Point Texas when she was one year old. They moved to Ralls Texas in 1945 where she graduated high school, then attended Texas Tech University. A talented singer, Pat sang in a trio and soloed at many weddings and funerals throughout high school and early adult years.

She married Stephen Kent Drysdale in 1957 and lived in Lubbock Texas where she was a homemaker for many years and then she was employed by State Farm insurance company where she retired in 2012. She was a member of Oakwood United Methodist Church of Lubbock where she sang in the choir.

Her passion was music, and her love was God and family. She will be dearly missed.

  1. Bettye Jo Tyer (Robinett) and I (Reika Henry) sang with Pat in the high school trio. We had so much fun singing and traveling to various venues – even to perform at the State Jaycee Convention in Dallas! I always think of Pat as a bridesmaid (sang a solo, too) in my wedding which was 62 years ago today. She was a talented artist and vocalist. Many people were blessed by her over the years. Ben and I send our deepest condolences to all the family. Love to all, Reika

  2. I’m so sorry to learn of her passing. My deepest sympathy goes out to the family. Psalms 34:18 talks about Jehovah God being close to the brokenhearted and saving those who are crushed in spirit. I hope this scripture brings some comfort during this time.

    We didn’t visit often. When we did we began where we left off just as best friends should be able to do. She was like a sister to me from 3rd grade through high school and then our first year at Texas Tech. Pat was a beautiful and talented lady.
    I send my sympathy to the Dennard and Drysdale families. May God bless and comfort you.
    Thank you, Vickie, for contacting me. I wish I could be at the visitation and service. At this time my health issues prevent that.
