Patricia A. Smith, nee Wilkerson, 84, of Waterloo, IL, died October 30, 2023, in Waterloo, IL. She was born January 29, 1939, in Carlyle, IL.
She is survived by her children Dee Williams, Peggy A. Meskil, Nona (Richard) Sturdivant, and Wes Smith; sisters Shirley Brown and Peggy Harter; and brother Robert Wilkerson.
Patricia is preceded in death by her husband Fred W. Smith; parents James & Aletha (nee Carman) Wilkerson; and brothers and sisters.
She was a devoted wife and mother who faced each day with her beautiful smile. A wife who traveled with her husband, job site to job site, making a home each stop along the way. A caring mother to not only her four children, but in widowhood, created a safe and loving sanctuary for her rescued "fur babies".
Mom will be greatly missed and forever loved.
As an expression of sympathy the family prefers memorial contributions to:
Monroe County Humane Society
A graveside service will be held at a later date.
