Patricia Lee Jones, 58, of Jefferson City, passed away Sunday, October 23, 2022, at Jefferson City Nursing and Rehab.
She was born March 21, 1964, in Jefferson City, the daughter of Richard Lee and Glenna Lou (Huffman) Jones.
She was a 1982 graduate of Jefferson City High School.
Patty had a great love for children and had intended to work in and eventually own a daycare after graduating from high school. Unfortunately, Patty was the victim of a drunk driving accident shortly after she turned eighteen. Partially paralyzed and head injured, Patty impressed and inspired her family and friends with her resilience. While Patty had to abandon her initial dream of working with children, she still showered nieces, nephews, and neighbor children with attention and love.
Despite her numerous physical and mental challenges, Patty learned to drive again and worked parttime for the State of Missouri for twenty years, retiring in 2014.
Patty enjoyed watching movies and her favorite TV series, listening to music (particularly the Blues), shopping and socializing. She loved being with friends, especially her best friend, Suzie Baumhoer, and her family! Nothing made her happier than sassy banter with her many beloved uncles, aunts, and cousins.
Survivors include her parents; two sisters, Suzanne Luther, and Ladonna Jones, both of Jefferson City; and four nieces and nephews, Emma (Chris) Hintch, Liberty; Graham Deutsch, Columbia; Adrienne Luther, Columbia; and James Luther, Jefferson City.
Visitation will be 2-4:00 p.m., Friday, November 4, 2022, at Trimble Funeral Homes, Jefferson City.
Memorials are suggested to Building Community Bridges or to The Food Bank of Central and Northeast Missouri.
