Sad News – Pat McKay

- Posted by Caron Armstrong -

Our dear member Patricia Anastasio McKay died peacefully on August 9th, 2023. Pat was born in Racine, Wisconsin, and her family moved to Florida in 1956. She and Tom, her beloved husband of 53 years, came to Winston-Salem from Boca Raton in 2006.

Pat had a long career in banking, starting as a teller and working her way into mortgage banking and bank management. Pat was an avid reader, and she and Tom enjoyed traveling in Europe. She had a wide variety of interests, and she loved her cats.

In her 13 years as a member, Pat often volunteered for Fellowship projects and events. She served in many roles including leadership of the Care and Worship Committees, and she remained active in Small Group Ministry. Pat’s wit was keen. When friends would say, “Pat, it’s so good to see you,” she’d often respond, “It’s good to be seen!” Her dry sense of humor, gentle leadership, and her unyielding love for her community was a tremendous gift to us all.

Pat is survived by her husband, Tom, daughter Liz Blevins, son-in law Danny, and grandson, Shelby. Details about a service to celebrate Pat’s life will be forthcoming as plans are finalized.
