Patricia Lynn Hubbard, 45, of Batesville, passed away on May 24, 2020, at her home surrounded by family and friends.
Patricia was born Feb. 8, 1975, in Hannibal, MO, to John and Rita Thrasher. Rita divorced and married Patricia’s stepfather, Jack Bates in 1977. Patricia went to school at Koshkonong Elementary and High School where she ran on a state-qualifying cross country team during her freshman year. She graduated in the Class of 1993. She married Matt Hubbard on Jan. 12, 2020, in Thayer, MO. She worked for Ozark Mountain Poultry in Batesville for several years and had her own business in Batesville for a short time.
Patricia was a loving mother, a faithful companion, and a fervent animal lover. She would often sacrifice her own comfort for that of her friends, family, and animals; a trait she acquired from her late mother, Rita Joy, who also opened her arms to those needing shelter and comfort. Patricia always did her best to mend bridges and never missed the opportunity to help anyone in need, many times through her business, or by taking in dogs who would otherwise end up in shelters.
Tricia lived a fulfilling life as a mother, sister, wife, and friend. She loved her fur babies more than most.
Patricia was preceded in death by her parents, maternal and paternal grandparents, and two step-grandsons, Cooper and Mason Williams.
Patricia is survived by her loving husband Matt; sons, Eric Keasler of Jonesboro, and Hunter Garrett of Batesville, sisters, Jessica (Chris) Moore, of Mammoth Spring, Jami (Emily) Bates of Koshkonong, MO; brothers, Kristopher (Shelby) Bates, of West Plains, MO, and Jackson Bates of Mammoth Spring; step-father Jack Bates of Thayer, MO: nieces Kori and Annabelle Moore of Mammoth Spring; nephews, Kristian and Jude Bates of West Plains, and Trent Snyder of Redmond, OR; and special niece Tamera Carter of Mason City, IA; step-children Cheyanne Hubbard, of Batesville, Victoria and Eric Williams and their children Khloe, Aubrey, Raelynn, and Swayze of Batesville; parents-in-law Donnie and Linda Hubbard of Batesville, and Sharon and Lamar Smith of Tiline, KY.
