Obituary – Patsy A. Sullins

Patsy Ann (Buckner) Sullins, was born to Jesse (Jack) Vernon Buckner and Dollie Mae (McKee) Buckner on November 26, 1947, in Kinderpost, Mo. She went to be with the Lord on October 8, 2021, at the age of 73, surrounded by those she loved. Pat accepted Jesus Christ as her personal Savior and was baptized on Sunday, June 14, 2019, at Montauk Baptist Church. Pat was married to the love of her life, Franklin D. Sullins, on October 28, 1967. Together they had two boys, Brian, born on October 13, 1972, and Jesse, born on July 14, 1976.

Pat worked as a seamstress at Lees and Rawlings factories for over 30 years. She could make anything with a bit of fabric and a sewing machine and loved sewing things for her family and friends. One of her favorite things to make were quilts, of which, she gifted to her children and grandchildren. They will always be greatly treasured. Pat loved her many adventures with her husband, Frank, especially trout fishing. She also enjoyed watching her grandkids in their many activities, trying new things, shopping, watching Cardinals games and westerns, and cooking Sunday night supper and holiday meals for her family. She was famous for her Charlie Brown. Pat’s secret ingredient was always love… and most definitely lard. Pat was the heart of our family and we will miss her to our core.
