Patricia “Patty” Ann Holt (nee Ballard),

February 14, 1943 – January 4, 2021

Patricia “Patty” Ann Holt, age 77, passed away peacefully due to complications from pancreatic cancer.

Patty was born in Dupo, Il., on February 14th, 1943 to Mabel & Virgil Ballard. She is survived by her two brothers Randy Ballard and Butch Ballard. Dear mother of Scott (Susan) and Chris (Jennifer), Patty had six grandchildren, including Sydney, Benjamin, Riley, Hailee, Madison and Carter.

Patty was bright, out-going, friendly, funny, loyal, with the warmest personality that would leave anyone who met her feeling connected in a wonderful way. She loved bringing joy to everyone fortunate enough to experience her cooking.  Patty spent many years working in retail and made friends with all of her customers and co-workers. She will be fondly remembered and dearly missed by all who knew and loved her.

A celebration of Patty’s life will be in the spring/summer of 2021. Donations may be made to Stray Rescue of St. Louis. www.strayrescue.org

    My very very best buddy all through grade school and high school. Our mothers always blamed the other as we seemed to always get into mischief. Will never forget her and all our giggles will always love her dearly. So amazing her birthday Feb 14th my youngest handicapped daughters birthday Feb 15th. Patty passed Jan 4th and my special little gal left us Jan 5th I hope they meet and hug and giggle as we use to. God bless sweet friend will never forget you. My prayers to the brothers and their families.

    I knew Patti from Gambrill Gardens where we both lived. She always had a smile on her face and would make it a point to say hi to you. She was so liked here at the retirement home. She will be missed by many and prayers to her family.

    Patty was my best neighbor ever at Sandalwood! She was a second mom to my dog Nick, and was always there when we needed anything. So sorry for your loss.
