Patricia Louise “Patsy” Whitfill


Patricia Louise “Patsy” Whitfill, 83, of Hardinsburg, KY died on Sunday June 11, 2023 on the Feast of Corpus Christi. She was born in Daviess County KY on April 20, 1940 to the late Lee and Louise Roberts.

Patsy was an active member of St. Romuald Catholic Church, but attended any daily mass. She was a faithful and devout Catholic with a deep love for the Eucharist and our Blessed Mother. She loved her big family very much. She was known to brag about the size and knew each one by name. Not only was she a mother to her own family, but to many others as well. She worked as a caregiver to the elderly and continued this passion until a few weeks before she passed away.

She was a wonderful artist and had a deep love for rosary making. She made over 10 thousand rosaries that were sent overseas to missionaries and for special events here at home. She was a large advocate for the unborn, a member of the Blue Army prayer group, and a lifelong member of the 3rd order of Saint Francis. Patsy loved picking wildflowers, any kind
of ice cream, and a good glass of wine.

In addition to her parents, Patsy was preceded in death by Richard Anthony Whitfill, her husband of 42 years; her daughter, Sharon Taylor; son, David Whitfill; grandson, Little David; brother, Little Kenny and many unborn angels. Patsy is survived by 7 sons, Ricky (Betty), Eddie (Beth), Francis (Carolyn Ladd), Carroll (Brenda), Dan, Ben (Shelley), and Mike (Crystal) all of Hardinsburg, KY; 5 daughters, Lyvenia Anthony (Deacon Tony), Lesia Whitfill, Gale Hinton (Dinky) all of Hardinsburg.
