January 23, 1938 - November 10, 2019
San Antonio, Texas | Age 81


Patricia "Patsy" Starnes, 81, passed peacefully with her family by her side, in her home on November 10, 2019. Her Celebration of Life is Wednesday, November 20, at 12:00 PM at Porter Loring Mortuary North, followed by a service and interment at Fort Sam Houston National Cemetery.

Patsy was born on January 28, 1938, in Galveston, Texas, to Margarita and Amos Perez. She was one of twenty-one children. Don Starnes and Patsy were married in San Antonio, TX, on November 25, 1960. She became a military wife and took over as head of the household while her husband was deployed. Together they raised seven children and were blessed with seven grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.

Patsy was an active member of her community, regardless of where she and Don lived and moved over the years. She remained involved with the community in Laredo Women's City Club and has continued cultivating her friendships by participating in the Daughters of the Nile and Alzafar Shriners, in San Antonio. Patsy always had a smile and kind words for anyone who crossed her path. She was indeed an angel on this Earth to her family and friends. Her presence will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
