Patricia was the last living member of her Sims family unit. She was preceded in death by all of her siblings, Charles, Clyde, Bill, and Dana Sims, Bertha Henness, and Barbara Hines.
Patricia was a proud graduate of Frankfort High School (Go Bobcats!). She started working at the Chillicothe Gazette in 1956 and retired after about 42 years of service. She also worked along side of her husband operating their family business, Bennett’s Fish Fry stand, which became very popular at the Circleville Pumpkin Show and Ross County Fair. Patricia attended Mount Pleasant Church, Kingston, while her health allowed.
The family would like to sincerely thank the staff of Liberty Village, Adena 2NE, Schaefer staff at National Church Residences, and Hill Funeral Home for their extraordinary care they provided during this difficult time.
