Pat ricia Whitaker Boggs, age 58, of Big Laurel, died Tuesday, November 22, at Harlan Appalachian Regional Hospital.
A daughter of Joyce Whitaker and the late Charlie Whitaker, she was a nurse practitioner at the Redfox Clinic.
Patty was one of the kindest, strongest and most stubborn person you could ever meet. She was a people- and animalperson. She built her life around her family and helping others. She loved to dance and sing with her family. She was a horse fanatic and could talk for hours about all of her adventures. She shared her love of horses with her family and recruited all of them to become avid equestrians, “horse people.” She loved her mother so much, they spent every other Thursday having “nail day” at Tips and Toes. Her son David was always in on those days and loved to “help” the nail tech during the manicures. She loved being outdoors whether riding horses or running with the kids. She loved doing 5k races and was planning to run a half marathon in the near future. Pat was loved by everyone and never met a stranger. Her smile was as big as her heart. She lived life to the fullest and had a great life. Rest in Peace — you take part of our hearts with you.
In addition to her mother, she is survived by her husband, Larry Brent Boggs; a sister, Suzy Madden and husband Paxton; a daughter, Rachel Boggs; two sons, James Arthur Boggs and wife Elizabeth, and David Scott Boggs; and four grandchildren, Grayson Riley Lewis, Aidan K Lewis, Sarah Leighanne Boggs and Annabelle Lucille Boggs.
Funeral services for Mrs. Boggs were held Saturday, November 26 at the Mount Pleasant Funeral Home at Harlan.
