Patsy Moss Hendrix

PATSY MOSS HENDRIX, 87, Oneonta, joined her beloved husband Charles and a host of family and friends in Heaven on Tuesday, Aug. 27, 2019. She was born in Blount County on May 22, 1932, to parents Loree Hill and Joseph Homer Moss. She grew up in McDonald’s Chapel, graduating from Minor High School in 1950. She worked at Birmingham City Hall for seven years until her aunt played matchmaker, introducing her to Charles Hendrix, who would become her husband and the love of her life for the last 62 years. The family enjoyed living in Pleasant Grove where she was active in Pleasant Grove United Methodist Church. She was an amazing homemaker and baker who delighted all with her fabulous cakes, cookies, and candies. After relocating to Oneonta in 1981, she was a member of Lester Memorial United Methodist Church, the Variosa Club, and the Rose Garden Club. She loved getting together with family and also a group of cherished friends from the 1950s Wylam Baptist Church Sunday school class in her Birthday Club, who met once a month for more than 60 years. She was predeceased by her loving husband and caregiver Charles, her parents, and brother Joseph Homer Moss, Jr.

She is survived by her son John Hendrix; sister Shirley Renshaw; sister-in-law Brenda Moss; nieces Sharon (David) Lett, Natalie and Julianne Lett, Amanda Renshaw, and Cassidy Moss; nephews Warren (Judy) Renshaw, Greg (Deanna) Moss, Mark (Celeste) Moss, Chris, Hunter, and Aaron Moss; friend and part-time caregiver whom she loved like a son Olice Carter; long time special helper and devoted caregiver Mildred Alexander; and dear friend and neighbor Diane Palmer.

The family would like to thank Tina Ogle, caregivers Karen Crane, Maria Dilliapree, Angie Sloan, Brooklyn Sloan, Lindsay Gurley, Faye Marsh, and the entire Oneonta Encompass (Alacare) Hospice team for their dedicated care and compassion.
