She was born March 14, 1949, in Roswell, New Mexico, to Jack Clyde and Beulah Head Sanders. She was one of four children. Pat married Joseph Samuel Wilson on June 4, 1971, in Roswell, New Mexico.
Pat was a member of the Jewish faith. She lived her life as a reflection of her special relationship with God, and though her actions, always strove to embody the teachings of the Torah. Pat loved animals, and was a devoted mother who took much pleasure in the company of her family and friends. She always saw herself as a country girl and enjoyed the outdoors, especially camping. Pat liked both types of music – Country and Western. Pat found happiness in living a simple life and was always willing to lend a helping hand to those in need. Pat held a special place in her heart for two generations of neighborhood children as they grew to adulthood.
She is survived by her daughter Tammy and her husband Todd Roen of Harker Heights, Texas; her chosen son, Milton, his wife Kelli Harper and their two children of Roswell, New Mexico; a brother, Tommy and his wife Margie Sanders of Roswell, New Mexico
She is preceded in death by her parents, her husband, a brother, Henry Sanders and a sister, Anna Cosper.
