Patsy Ann Alred Sheffield was born on Aug. 11, l941 in Plantersville to the late Cleveland and Margie Burleson Alred. She met her Creator face to face from her longtime Mooreville home on Tuesday, August 2, 2022 after a courageous battle with dementia. Her family was by her side. Patsy married Jimmy Sheffield on Aug. 22, l958, a marriage of almost 64 years. She worked over 32 years as a Press Operator for Super Sagless. Patsy was a quiet moving force who knew how to approach each day with optimism and encouragement. She loved her family, kept Jimmy going for almost 6 ½ decades and loved perfectly her grandchildren whom she doted over and seldom missed a sporting event they were involved with. Patsy was a collector of cook books and was a master cook. She was a longtime member of the Boguefala Baptist Church where she kept the nursery for many years, an extension of her profound Christian belief and encouragement in young people’s lives. Patsy’s living was not in vain!
