Patricia was born in Bagwell, Tx on October 14, 1931 to Guy and Dorothy Bradshaw. She attended Clarksville High School, Midland Junior College and then McNeese State University, Lake Charles, Louisiana. She married Billy Davis on May 24, 1952.

Pat was an avid home maker who spent countless hours gardening, painting, sewing, crocheting, and cooking. Her greatest joy was taking care of her family, especially her grandkids and great grandkids whom she spoiled rotten and loved every minute of it. Pat was extremely hard working, she got up before the sun and was still diligently working when the sun went down.

While Pat’s immediate family was her pride and joy, Pat opened her home and her heart to countless children that came into her life and made them feel as one of her own.

Pat was a kind-and tender-hearted woman that never met a stranger and always had a twinkle in her eye. She also loved volunteering and was actively involved in the Boys and Girls Scouts and Meals on Wheels for numerous years.

Pat was a devout Christian woman and enjoyed being active in the Church throughout her life.

The family would like to thank the Encompass Home Health Care, Kindred Home Hospice care and Rusti Munoz for the excellent and loving care provided to Pat the last several years.

She is survived by Billy Davis of Buffalo Gap; son, Jeff Davis and wife Liane of Tuscola; daughter, Rachel Finch and husband Billy of Abilene; son, Chad Davis and wife Heather of Merkel; grand children Will Ruiz, Cole Davis, Cory Davis and wife Becky, Kaitlyn Davis, Chase Davis, and Andrew Finch; great grandchildren, Harper, Sawyer, Ely, and Ellie. She is also survived by numeros well-loved cousins, nieces and nephews.

Pat was preceded in death by her father, Guy O. Bradshaw, mother, Dorothy Kimbrell, brothers, Guy and Jimmy Bradshaw, stepfather J.O. Kimbrell, stepfather Steward Mitchell, Sr. stepbrother Steward Mitchell, Jr.

In lieu of flowers donations can be made to: Rescue the Animals, 5933 S 1st St, Abilene, TX 79605. Rescue the Animals was very dear to Pat.
