Patricia Ann Newsome Taylor Weeks Smith
Matthews, GA – Patricia Ann Newsome Taylor Weeks Smith, 55, wife to the late Roy Taylor and Lewis E. Smith, entered into her eternal rest Thursday night, July 25, 2019, at her children’s residence in Jackson SC.
One of six children born to the late Eunice Virginia Davis Newsome and the late Herbert Gordon Newsome, Patricia was born and raised in Augusta, moving to Matthews in 2004. She loved NASCAR, with Jeff Gordon being her favorite driver, and country music, especially Loretta Lynn. She enjoyed watching her soap operas and playing Bingo. Her drink of choice was Dr. Pepper—she was hardly ever without a Dr. Pepper in her hand. Having an out-going personality, she loved being around people and never met a stranger. Patricia had a strong, determined attitude and loved her family fiercely.
Patricia was also preceded in death by her brother, Tommy Gordon Newsome. Those left to cherish her memory include her children, Roy Lee Taylor (Laura), Candyann Marie Taylor, and Crystal Marie Taylor; siblings, John Wayne Newsome, Tammy Joslyn, Rachel Coleman and Randy Lee Newsome; six grandchildren, Hannah Taylor, Cody Isaac Taylor, Makayla Taylor, Emily Taylor, Joshua Germany and Corey Germany; nieces, nephews, and friends.
Because of the sudden onslaught of cancer and subsequent death, the family respectfully requests that in lieu of flowers memorial contributions be made directly to James Funeral Home, P.O. Box 588, Wrens, GA 30833.
