She is proceeded in death by her husband, Dearl Patrick; her parents, Ned and Aurice Allen Murphy; and twelve siblings.

She leaves behind one son, David Patrick (Marilyn) of Monticello, Arkansas; two daughters, Deanna Stiles (Richard) of Bryant, Arkansas, and Deborah Patrick of Crossett; along with five grandchildren; Brittney Stevenson, Jarrod Earnest, Jordyn Hastings, Tori Seale, and Aryn Stiles; eight great-grandchildren; and a host of nieces, nephews, and friends.
