Patricia Ramsey Downey passed away on February 12, 2023. She was born on April 29, 1944, to the late James and Elsie Ramsey. She was the loving wife of James Downey, Jr. for 60 years. She fought a long battle with Alzheimers but is finally now at peace.
Patricia loved all things adventure and lived a very full life with so many friends made along the way. She was a teacher at heart for which her grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and many others will remember her always.
In addition to her husband, she is survived by her son-in-law, Hubert Vasser; grandchildren, Nathan Vasser (Danielle), Keri Brooks (Jeff), and James Vasser; great-grandchildren, Mason Brooks, Gunner Vasser, and Ryan Vasser.
A celebration of life will be held later in the spring. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Alzheimer’s Association.
Tharp Funeral Home & Crematory, Lynchburg, is assisting the family.
