Patricia Isbell


The Edmond Sun

EDMOND —     Patricia Isbell, 85, of Edmond, Okla., was born in Liverpool, England to George and Margaret Lockley. She died November 16, 2012 in Edmond with her family by her side.

    Patricia lived a life worthy of a story. You might say her story began when she met and married her true love, James Isbell, a young American soldier stationed in England. Together they traveled to and even lived in many places around the world and their lives painted a picture of love.

    Patricia’s life revolved around her family. She loved hosting people in her home, especially holiday dinners. The dinner would turn out to be a full event, as she was quite the perfectionist. She enjoyed the simple things in life; bowling, darts, or a glide across the dance floor with James. Her life “full of fire” will certainly be missed by those who knew her.

    Patricia is survived by her three daughters, Elaine Aucott and husband Tony, Cathy Bilbrey and husband Mark, and Donna Stein; and her grandchildren, Jeff Crawford and  wife Mindy, Lauren Skora and husband Emiland, Kaci Taylor and husband Mark, Colin Stein, Patty Stein, Brad Bilbrey and wife Sara, Justin Bilbrey and fiance Cecily Stockwell, and Sue Neve. She also leaves behind two great grandsons, Zac Crawford and Edward George Neve.

    A come-and-go reception with visitation honoring Patricia’s life will be from 6 - 8 p.m. Tuesday, November 20 at Crawford Family

Funeral Service. 

    Mass of Christian Burial will be 12:30 p.m. Wednesday in the chapel of St. John the Baptist Catholic Church with burial following at Sunset Memorial Park Cemetery.

    Memorial donations may be made in Patricia’s name to the Alzheimer’s Association.
