Ms. Patricia Brown Obituary

Patricia began this life on November 2, 1959.  She was born to the late Willie Edward Taylor and Mary Lee Taylor. Patricia peacefully departed this life on Wednesday, March 6, 2024, in Columbia, South Carolina. The following is an account of her “Dash.”

What is in a name?

Patricia shared her parents with siblings that recalled playing silly games like Pat-A-Cake, Ms. Lucy, Hopscotch Jack & Jill, Mother, May I?, and jump rope.  Over the years she received nicknames like “Moo Cow”, “Trish Ann”, and “Ti’Ti”. 

Patricia was educated the public schools of Lexington County, South Carolina.  During this time, she met the late Daniel Joseph Fanning, Jr. and began a family that would grow to include seven children. This is when she got the nickname, “Cricket.”

Patricia’s life’s work was best described by the names Mom, Sister, Friend, Niece, Grandma, Nana, confidant, encourager, guide, teacher, and uplifter.  Her favorite pastimes included everything from cooking and baking, to walking and sunning. Yes, she liked to “sun”. She spent much of her time as a Hair Stylist, Artist, PE Teacher, Self-Defense Instructor, Referee, Party Planner, Learning Coach, and Emotional Support Coordinator. Trish enjoyed gardening, skating, writing and was a supportive business partner.

Trish enjoyed gardening, skating, writing and was a supportive business partner. "Pat" always shared her faith along the way.  She instilled that faith in her children when they were young.  In her latter years, her personal studies and convictions led her to keep the commandments of The Most High God.
