Obituary for Lillian B. Patrick
Lillian “Lit” of Amelia, VA received her angel wings on Monday, August 6, 2012. She was born on August 10, 1927 to the late Henry C. Barley and Susie Eggleston Barley. “Lit” as she was affectionately known by family and friends, was the fourth born of six children. Her siblings in order of birth are: Ordell, Lois, Russell, Milton and Geraldyne.
She was baptized and joined the little Union Baptist church at an early age. Upon moving to New Jersey she joined the Mt Olive Baptist Church in East Orange as a watch care member. She joined the Chancellor Choir. She loved to sing and had a beautiful voice. After moving back to Amelia, she resumed her membership with Little Union, singing in the choir until her health began to fail.
She attended Morven Grade School, the little two room schoolhouse across the road from Little Union, graduated from the Russell Grove High School class of 1944 and studied to be a seamstress at the Maggie L Walker School in Richmond.
In 1946 she joined her sisters in New Jersey where she reconnected with her childhood sweetheart Walter Patrick and they were married on January 25, 1947. To this union of 65 years they were blessed with children, Wayne, Sandra and Linda. When her husband became a man of the cloth, she was ordained as a Deaconess and worked diligently by his side in all of the churches he pastored until she was no longer able. In the 1970’s she moved back to Amelia where she was surrounded by her grandchildren. She helped raise all of her grand’s and great-grand’s and more. They all have stories of their times with her. After retiring she loved to travel with her husband. They traveled to places such as Niagara Falls, Canada; Detroit, Michigan; Branson, Missouri; Atlanta, Georgia; the Poconos and Florida.
She was employed by Tung Sol Electric which later became Wagner Electric for over 25 years.
She leaves to cherish fond memories to her husband, Reverend Walter Patrick; son, Walter Wayne Patrick; daughters, Sandra Perkinson (Randolph), and Linda Patrick; two sisters, Ordell Kimbrough and Geraldyne Scott; two sister-in-laws Bettie Barley and Florence Monroe; five grandchildren, Jeffrey Perkinson, Jenaya Baker (Phillip), Ray-Benz Cook, Joi Jackson, and Jennifer Perkinson; four great-grandchildren, Sydnie Baker, Phillip I.
