Patricia Dawn Grimes, age 83, of Lincoln, Vermont went to be with the Lord on Tuesday, June 26, 2018. She passed away peacefully in her home just a half mile from the house where she grew up.
Patricia was born on October 28, 1934 to Clifford and Delia Masterson. She was the oldest of three children. She married her husband Howard on June 27, 1958 and together they raised three daughters on a small farm just down the road from where she grew up.
Patricia spent her married life raising children and making a home where her family felt loved and cared for. And a place where extended family and friends knew they were always welcome and could come and spend as much time as they liked.
She was an avid flower gardener and loved to share their beauty. She loved animals, doing handiwork, working puzzles, trying new recipes and reading her Bible. She enjoyed caring for many children and spent years babysitting for kids in the area. She looked forward to spending time with her family, grandchildren and friends. If she knew you, you could count on the fact that she would be praying for you regularly.
Patricia was predeceased by her husband Howard, as well as her parents.
She is survived by her sister and brother-in-law, Thelma and Donald Grimes, Sr., her brother and sister-in-law, Vilas and Walterine Masterson. Her three daughters and their husbands, Joni and Ron Masterson, Suzanne and Greg Grant, Stacy and Clay Sack. Her grandchildren, Jeremiah and Ashely Grant, Aaron and Joanna Grant, Seth Grant, Matthew Gosselin, Paul Gosselin, Sarah Sack, Steven Sack and Taylor Sack. Three great granddaughters and several nieces and nephews.
