Patsy Faye Ledford
Jan. 21, 1943 –
Aug. 26, 1993.
In Proverbs 31: Verse 10-31, describes a virtuous woman – for her price far above rubies. (Please read these verses, it describes Patsy Faye Reeder). She was a virtuous Christian wife, mother and grandmother. She loved the Lord with all her heart, soul and mind (the First Commandment).
She was a super role model Christian wife, mother, grandmother and friend. After five years of long-term illness (leukemia), she died at the age of 50 on Aug. 26, 1993.
She was the virtuous wife of Bro. Harold Reeder and the mother of six children: Jeff (Regina) Reeder, Phillip (Teresa) Reeder and Debbie (Frankie) Beason of Monroe, TN; Ann (Dan) Varbel of Monterey; Ricky (Karen) Reeder of Livingston; and Mike (Kim) Reeder of Jamestown, TN. And the grandmother of numerous grandchildren, some of which she never met while on earth’s journey.
Her memory and her Christian examples live on in her family and friends she left behind, to join her someday in Paradise or Heaven.
Words can never express how much she is admired and missed by her earthly family; but they know, according to God’s Promise, they can be with her someday, forever.
May we all strive to be a virtuous Christian and role model for others, as we obey the “Good Lord’s” commandments daily.
