Patricia was born February 1, 1935, in Indianapolis, the daughter of Carl and Ruby Karr Ashley. She retired as office manager from the Columbus Boys Club after 33 years of service, then returned for another ten years because she loved the youth of Columbus.

Patricia was a beloved mother, grandmother and great-grandmother and devoted her life to her family.

Calling hours will be from 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday at the Jewell-Rittman Family Funeral Home and one hour prior to the service at the church. Burial will be at Garland Brook Cemetery.

Memorials may be made to the Foundation for Youth through the funeral home.
