Patsy J Willard, 81 of Titusville FL (formally of Crossville, TN and Racine, WI), passed away on Wednesday, August 30, 2023, at her residence.
Patsy was born on August 7th, 1942 in Knoxville, TN, the daughter of James Patrick (JP) and Carrie Mae Seymour. On July 5th, 1962, she married John F. Willard Sr.
Patsy did many things in her life. She was a school bus driver, a behind the wheel driving instructor, ran an “in home” daycare, was on a bowling league, amongst many other things, but most of all, she loved taking care of her family.
Patsy is survived by her husband of 62 years – John F Willard Sr., her sons: John F Willard Jr. (Kari) and Ronald Willard, her grandchildren: Jennifer Willard (Sean Christofferson), Jessica Flatley (Matt), Kayla Berens (Jason Anderson) and her great grandchildren: Kyra, Mason and Julian, along with many nieces, nephews, in-laws and friends.

Patsy will always be remembered for her “sassy personality”. We’ll always imagine hearing her say “that’s just how things are done down here (when building 2 homes in TN)” and “That’s all I know (the last thing she would say in a phone conversation)”. We couldn’t have asked for a better Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Aunt and Friend, and will miss Patsy every day. Her memory will live on in the hearts of all those who loved her.

A special thanks to the Hospice Team in Titusville, FL, for their compassion and extraordinary care of our loved one, at the end of her journey.
