The infinite beauty of heaven swung open its gates of glory Monday afternoon, June 14, 2021, to welcome Patricia “Pat” Marie Moffett, 62, of Sheridan, Indiana.
A native of Connersville, Pat died in her sleep of complications from congestive heart failure and COPD.
She was born February 21, 1959 to J. Conway and Carolyn (Storch) Moffett at Fayette Memorial Hospital, Connersville. She was a 1977 graduate of Connersville High School and attended Clark College in Indianapolis. Her life’s journey took her to reside in several Indiana towns, including Richmond, Fort Wayne, Madison, and Greenwood.
Pat worked in food service at Connersville High School and later at the former Bob Evans restaurant on Park Road.
Known for her infectious laugh, gregarious by nature, Pat possessed a ready sense of humor and a warm, generous heart. She never forgot a birthday of the nieces and nephews she loved so much.
Born to a family of sports enthusiasts, Pat was pre-ordained for an immersion in them. She was a faithful supporter of the Cincinnati Reds, Indianapolis Colts, and the Purdue University Boilermakers. She was rewarded with the thrill of attending the opening game of the 1970 World Series pitting the Reds against the Baltimore Orioles at Riverfront stadium.
Other highlights included watching the Connersville Spartans beat Gary West for the 1972 IHSAA boys state basketball championship at Assembly Hall in Bloomington, and Purdue battle Florida in the NIT men’s basketball quarterfinals at Market Square Arena in Indianapolis.
Whether with family or friends, Pat was always up for a game of cards, Bingo, Parcheesi, or Yahtzee. In her youth, she enjoyed croquet and badminton.
Survivors include her sister, LuAnn McQueen of Connersville; her brother, Michael (Lorinda) Moffett of Sioux Falls, South Dakota; step-mother, Beverely Moffett of Connersville; nieces, Kim Vanover of Connersville, Lisa (Dan) Kuznik of McCordsville, Emily Moffett of Indianapolis, and Clairyssa Moffett of Sioux Falls; nephews, Benjamin Apsley-Moffett of Shelbyville and Connor Moffett of Sioux Falls; and several great-nephews and nieces. Pat also leaves behind her wonderful friends and moral supporters, David and Lillian Hays of Connersville, and Herb and Jennifer Drew of Liberty.
She was preceded in death by her parents and a sister, Gina, who died in 2013.
Family and friends may call from 10:00 a.m. until the time of service at 11:00 a.m. Friday, June 18, 2021 at Miller, Moster, Robbins Funeral Home with Reverend Dustin Boehm officiating. Burial will follow in Dale Cemetery.
