Patricia Lee Roberts' 84-year journey is now complete and she is in the presence of the Lord. Pat is the mother of ABC Ohio Core Services Administrator Leslie Hoskinson. Pat was a devoted Christian who loved the Lord. She was a member of the Linnwood Baptist Church. Serving the Jacksontown community through her employment at the National Trail Country Store brought Pat profound happiness. She enjoyed making homemade deli for over 42 years. The stories our family has heard of her going over and above for many people have been such a blessing to us. She truly patterned selfless giving as the Lord would have us to do.
Pat was the daughter of the late Roscoe D. and Leota (Cook) Womax and was born November 17, 1936. She left this world peacefully for her eternal home Saturday, September 25, 2021 with loved ones by her side.
