She was very proud of being a registered nurse and loved being able to take care of patients as long as her health permitted. Patricia enjoyed cooking, doing crafts, gardening, spending time with her friends, trips to the beach, and her fur babies. She was loved by her family and friends and will be deeply missed.

She was preceded in death by a maternal grandfather, George Huckabee, paternal grandfather, Robert Phelps, and a maternal grandmother, Shirley Thomas.

Patricia is survived by her husband Wes, her daughter, Miranda Paige and fiancé Josh Spence, and her son, Joshua Tyler Thomas, both of Aulander; three brothers, Tony Huckabee and wife Alessia, Tommy Huckabee, both of Aulander, and Robby Phelps and wife Wendy of Lewisburg, KY; and a maternal grandmother, Patricia Lohmeyer and husband Bill of Grand Haven, MI; along with nieces, nephews, and extended family.

A celebration of life memorial service will be held on Friday, December 30, 2022, at 4:00 pm at the Garrett-Sykes Funeral Service, Ahoskie, NC, with Rev. Al Hughson officiating.

Hey Cuz,
Not much comfort I can offer to you and Vicki, only to say that we are all here for you. I will skip the cliches. Cathy and I have experienced the pain. It will always be there, and you never want it to go away. It is a constant reminder of the love and bonding that both of you shared with her. You just learn to breath in the moment to get to the next. You learn to cope with the pain know God loved you enough to have loaned her to you for a while. Love you both and the family. Stay strong. Ronnie
