Mrs. Patsy Ann Rhoton departed earth and joined her heavenly family on March 23, 2021 surrounded by her loving family. She was born in Russellville, AR on June 13, 1946 to the late Paul and Ona Saleene Stinnett of Centerville, AR.

Mama will be remembered by so many for being a devoted wife, a fiercely loving mother and the best Grammy and sister that a family could ask for. Mom will also be remembered by most as an extraordinary loyal and giving friend. Her generous spirit and open-door policy were incomparable. Mom had many special gifts that she shared with so many during her lifetime. Her advice about how to tackle any obstacle, fashion, agriculture, or where to get a good meal in whatever town one might be in came without hesitation. Mama’s love and admiration for life stretches too far to measure. Particularly, her love of family and friend gatherings, holidays, and her love of reading. These are just a few things that made her happiest. Besides her family, cooking was one her best, most practiced gifts. As her family would say, “She could walk into any kitchen and feel right at home preparing a meal of any type, for any size crowd. She was the only skinny cook that could be trusted!”. Oh Mama, we’re sure gonna miss you, your advice, your spunk, and your unconditional, unwavering love. Kiss Daddy & Hossy for us.

She is survived by her daughters Tiffany Walling (Tony) of Lakeland, FL; Janelle Lundin (Gus) of Glenwood Springs, CO; son Clinton Rhoton (Natalie) of Lakeland, FL; brother Bobby Stinnett (Jana)of Lakeland, FL; sisters Joyce Falbo of Roseville, CA, Leda Rogge (Dick) of San Diego, CA, Susan Beckman of Torrance, CA; 4 grandchildren Tristen Walling, Trace Walling, Tatum Lundin, and Ashton Lundin; and many nieces, nephews, and cousins.
