Pat attended Nottoway Senior High School in Nottoway County. She graduated high school, joined the Army and traveled while in the military. Pat was stationed in Germany for a short period of time and in Korea for one year. Pat climbed the ranks and became a Sergeant of Company B 50th Signal Battalion, and the 35th Signal Brigade of Fort Brag, NC. She loved traveling and was definitely a people person. Everyone that knew her, knew her to be outgoing, intelligent and organized but also so much fun to be around; comical, creative and an awesome coffee buddy! Pat loved her family dearly. She cherished her sisters, her brother and her friends.
After she was honorably discharged from her service with the military Pat moved to Maryland. She was a successful trader at Alex Brown Stock Company in Baltimore, MD for approximately 15 years. She moved to Virginia and then to North Carolina. In North Carolina she worked as a 911 dispatcher for the Raleigh-Durham Police Department and as a TSA Officer at the Raleigh Durham Airport.
Pat was a spiritually inclined individual. She always gave spiritual guidance, complete kindness, and love straight from the heart to her family and friends. Pat touched many lives and inspired so many.
Pat enjoyed her quiet time with God and it was a lifetime essential
to her. Daily devotional and a life of prayer she was no stranger to for she leaves a lasting impression on us all. She was a part of many ministries, clubs, conferences and church related groups and events.
Although Pat had no biological children she mothered all of her nieces, nephews and younger cousins as if they were her own. She showed them love, affection, attention and showered them with gifts and her time. She organized many family events and this soldier was always front and center at all family gatherings, and reunions; helping to organize and be the glue to help her family stay closely knitted. She will be sorely missed… Fly high Angel for you have earned your wings sweet lady….
She was preceded in death by a brother, James Herman Allen Jr., but leaves to cherish her memories five loving sisters and a loving brother all from Virginia: Marian Allen, Rita Allen, Joyce Allen, Jerome Allen, Rachel Ellis, and Ella Robertson all whom she loved unconditionally.
