Phyllis Walker Patrick passed away peacefully after a lengthy battle with Alzheimer’s Disease on July 30, 2015.

She was born in Atmore, on Nov. 26, 1948, and graduated from Escambia County High School in 1967. She married the love of her life, James Patrick, on May 27, 1966.

Phyllis and Jim’s love of travel took them many places throughout the U.S., and they were known to go on a cross-country adventure at a moment’s notice. Walt Disney World was their favorite location, and they passed their love of Disney to their children and grandchildren. Many wonderful memories were made there.
