Patricia Irene Redfoot


Patricia "Pat" Irene (King) Redfoot, of Chapel Hill, N.C., passed away on Tuesday, March 30, 2019. She was 88.
Pat was born on Jan. 4, 1931, in Mercer, one of the eight children of Dr. Thomas and Mary (Orr) King.
Pat graduated from "'Presby" School of Nursing, Pittsburgh, in 1951 and in 1953 married her high school sweetheart, Dale Eugene Redfoot. Theirs was a beautiful story of a love that surpassed a challenging start and ended in an extraordinarily full life together.
Patricia devoted her life lovingly to her husband, four children, seven grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren.
Her children, Linda Caracci (Blair), Kenneth Redfoot (Mary), Marcia Redfoot Leonard, and Brad Redfoot (Tracy) all reside in Chapel Hill, N.C.
She was very proud of being a registered nurse. She was also a devourer of books, lover of music and dancing, Carolina basketball fan, Scrabble queen, creator of quilts, beadwork and delicious food, and a consummate entertainer of family and friends.
Patricia will be sadly missed by her children; her surviving sister Barbara Beatty (Bill); brother Dr. David King (Judy); sisters-in-law, Bette Norris and Shirley Redfoot; brother-in-law, Joseph Hood; many nieces and nephews; and grandchildren Aaron Caracci (Amy), Stephanie Reid (Patrick), Ashleigh Ionescu (Adrian), Allison Leonard, Katelyn Redfoot, Sean Leonard, and Carly Copeland (Ben). Also, her sweet great-grandchildren who she gave her so much joy, Hayes and Eliza Reid, Claire Caracci and Arlin Dale Ionescu.
A private service led by Pastor Scott Anderson will be held on Saturday at St Paul's Lutheran Church, Durham.
Memorial contributions may be made in her name to: A Helping Hand, 1502 W. North Carolina Highway 54 Suite 405, Durham, N.C. 27707.
