Patricia, better known as Patsy, was born June 19, 1948, in Lubbock, TX to Santos Guerrero and Pauline Garcia. She was the youngest of three children.
Patsy was a dedicated and hard worker. She worked for 30 years as a Registered Nurse, most of that time at our own Northwest Texas Hospital and then as a traveling nurse before retirement. Patsy loved listening to music from Al Green, to Bach, and Worship. She also had a passion for swimming, and could be found most often laughing at the Bingo Hall with her best friend Gloria. Above all, Patsy was passionate, full of love and took pride in all of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, they were her world. She had a heart of gold, with so many Son’s and Daughter’s she treated as her own. Patsy opened up her home to many on cold nights, and never once hesitated to feed anyone with her last dollar. She had a long-standing relationship with God and led many to faith. She will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved her.
She was preceded in death by her father Santos and beloved mother Pauline; a son, Anthony Rios; two brothers, David and Stephen Guerrero; a sister, Cecilia Lucero; a nephew, Daniel Lucero; and a niece, Christa Lucero.
