Patricia Diane Abbott was born at home on April 5, 1949, in Salina, to Freeman Lea and Eve (Oropeza) Shockley, the second oldest of 7 children. Pat lived her entire life as an Oklahoma resident and is now survived and dearly missed by her children, Mike Abbott and wife Shelly; Tracy Abbott, and Elissa (Abbott) Phillips; grandchildren, Morgan and Madison Abbott, Zach Abbott and wife Hailey, Hailey, Darian and Gracy Abbott, Terra (Phillips) Ross and husband Justin, Cindy (Phillips) Drinski and husband Tyler, and Aaron Phillips; great-grandchildren, Bentley, Harmony, Melody, Trinity, Cherity, Emaily, Odette, and Rowan; brothers, Robert Shockley, Phil and David Arneecher, and sisters, Irene Arneecher-Lipe, and Lisa Alexander; along with many other extended family.
As a young girl she attended a rural school just outside of Salina called Big Brewer Schools. Later she would move to Vinita where she attended Sacred Heart Catholic School graduating with the class of 1967. After graduating she moved back to Salina and soon after met Doyle Abbott. They married in 1969, settled down in Chelsea and raised three children together, Mike, Tracy, and Elissa. As her children got older, she decided to return to school at Afton’s Northeastern Votech and earned her LPN license. Throughout the next several years she would work in the health care industry. Working in numerous places such as Chelsea Nursing Home, Tulsa Care, Claremore Veterans Center, and home health agencies until 2007 when she retired.
Pat was extremely active and creative. She loved cooking homemade meals from scratch and was renowned for her famous potato enchiladas, flower tortillas, and vermicelli. She had enthusiasm for anything arts n’ craft and quickly gained notoriety at being an impeccable seamstress and holds many hours in ceramics, sewing, embroidery, crocheting, quilting, etc. Every year you could find her with her hands in some dirt curating a glorious garden filled with flowers, herbs, and vegetables. Pat also spent time being a part of the Chelsea Round Up Club helping with the concession stand during events. However as busy as Pat was her love for cooking, crafts, and gardening never waned as she made many clothes, quilts/blankets, and meals for what brought immense joy in her life, her family.
Pat joins her loving parents, Freeman and Eve, her youngest sister, Mary Backward, former spouse Doyle Abbott, and youngest grandson, Sawyer Phillips in heaven.
