Patty Lou Laxson

May 11, 1952 — February 25, 2023

Lorena, Texas

Patty Lou Laxson at the age of 14 put her faith and trust in Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior. On February 25, 2023, surrounded by her family she peacefully entered into His arms. Patty, 70 of Lorena, was preceded in death by her parents Cecil and Nell Moore and her husband of 39 years, Rolland Roberts Laxson.

On May 11th, 1952, Patty entered the world. She grew up in Gatesville, Texas as the only child of Cecil and Nell Moore, surrounded by aunts, uncles, and cousins. Not long after graduating from high school she met the love of her life and late husband Rolland Laxson. The two were married in 1971 and moved to Lorena where they raised their two daughters, Jana and Jeanie. Patty was a devoted mother and exemplified dedication and commitment to all she did. As a young woman she worked at Avery Paper for 20 years, followed by a 24-year career as the court administrator for the City of Hewitt. It was there she made some of her best friends that were with her through thick and thin. In January of 2022, Patty retired from the city but her friendships and love for those she worked closely with continued to the very end.

Patty, whose smile made everyone feel like a friend, loved being active. She traveled all over the country visiting her daughter Jeanie and her family, enjoying rodeos, and simply exploring all that our great country has to offer. She also treasured shopping trips with her oldest daughter Jana and seeing her compete in numerous barrel races. Years after Rolland passed, Patty met her friend Richard Leggett who she enjoyed listening to live country music with, dancing, and their shared passion for all things country.

For all who really knew Patty it was clear that her most precious treasure in this world was her granddaughters, Alexandria and Olivia Vinson. In her 20 years as “Grami,” Patty never missed one of the girl’s birthdays or Christmas’ no matter where they were.

Those left to cherish her memories are her oldest daughter Jana and her husband Roger Kennedy; youngest daughter Jeanie and her husband Jay Vinson, her two granddaughters Alexandria and Olivia Vinson, Richard Leggett, and too many friends to list.

A memorial service to celebrate Patty’s life will be held at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday March 4th, at Grace Gardens Funeral Home followed by her burial at Davidson Cemetery in Mound.

Psalm 23

The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.
