She graduated from Lamar High School in Houston, Texas, and received an Associate’s Degree from the University of Mary Hardin Baylor. Initially a stay-at-home mom, she later worked as a secretary at Transco Energy and Shell Oil until her retirement.Patsy married Alvin Lee Smith in 1971 in Houston, Texas. They were members of Grace Community Church and together served Christ for many years with Kairos prison ministry and Walk to Emmaus. After Al’s passing, Patsy joined Life Fellowship Church in Katy and ministered to others as a member of the Prayer Team. She attended Women’s Aglow fellowship weekly and served on the local board of directors of the organization. She also started and organized a Bible study at Mason Senior Apartments, until her recent move to Lubbock, Texas. Patsy was bold in her beliefs and shared her faith when the opportunity presented. She even went so far as to give strangers a ride home (to the horror of her daughters) and shared the gospel message as she drove.Patsy was a cup overflowing with joy. Like David, she danced before the Lord and worshiped with conviction. She was a “church grandmother” to both young and old. With children, she was playful and fun; to those younger than her, she was encouraging and loving. To all, she was the face that always had a smile. When she discovered two elderly neighbors, Dorothy and Sandra, who had no family and were in dire need of help, and sometimes needing help herself, Patsy cooked meals for the ladies, drove them to doctor appointments, and was an advocate for their well-being. She was a friend to anyone in need and served in the ministry of helping others, without needing anyone to organize it.Survivors include her daughters, Teresa Sims and husband, James, and Lynn Tyger; six grandchildren, Andrew Kendrick and wife, Casey, Matthew Kendrick, and wife, Tara, Jennifer Stewart and husband, Brian, Kimber Jameson and husband, Joshua, Carol Tyger-Brener, and husband, Yaniv, and Paul Tyger, great-grandchildren, Preston Stewart, Hailey Stewart, Jayden Jameson, Avery Kendrick, Rylan Kendrick, Jax Jameson, Camry Kendrick, Reed Kendrick.She was preceded in death by her parents, Lauton Lee and Eleanor Green; husband, Alvin Lee Smith; sisters, Eleanor Buller and Betty Green; and son-in-law, Vernon Tyger III.
