Patricia was born on September 19, 1939 in Effingham County, Illinois, the daughter of Jesse and Naomi (Burry) Webb. She graduated from Altamont High School in 1958. Patricia started working at Petty Printing in October 1972 where she worked for 36 years and retired October 2008. She married John Orsborn in 1960. To this union, two sons were born.
Pat never knew a stranger; she was so full of life and lived it to the fullest. She was known for her kind heart, contagious smile, and her strong faith in God. She was a strong woman that inspired so many and was determined to fight this cancer until the very end.
Pat loved her grandchildren more than anything else in the world. She loved each and every one of them and was so proud. She drove millions of miles to follow them in all of their milestones in life. Her theory was there is a no such thing as “step”, they were all her grandchildren and treated them all equally. To everyone she was “Grandma Pat”. She filled everyone’s life with such wonderful memories and will be missed dearly.
