In loving memory of Patricia Jo Ann Merrick, Patricia Merrick, age 77, passed away Thursday, September 23, 2021. She was born March 15, 1944 in Wichita, Kansas to Lee and Louise Hoseney. Pat dedicated her professional career to education in the public school system. She also was a committed member of her local churches through the years, teaching Sunday school and serving in the youth and women’s ministry. Pat loved her family more than anything and was a loving wife, mother, sister, and grandmother. She is survived by her husband, Roger Merrick; her sisters Nancy Zelinski and Sally Price; her children Robert Wizer, Jr., Julie Freeman, Jeff Wizer, Jason Wizer, and Jennifer Youngman; her thirteen grandchildren; and twelve great-grandchildren. Patricia is preceded in death by her parents. In lieu of flowers we ask that donations be made to “Everyone’s Wilson,” an initiative that benefits feeding and education within the community. A private family visitation was held. Burial will be announced.
