Patricia "Pat" or "Patty Rose" as she was affectionately referred to by some of her family and friends passed away peacefully on Dec.27 exactly 23 years after her mother, Louise. She had been surrounded by many of her loved ones for several days.

 

She was born on April 19, 1940 in West Terre Haute, IN to Louise Corbin Delaunois and Alfred Delaunois. She was preceeded in death by her parents and her husband,

Gary Hewitt. Survivors include her two daughters, Leisa Wisbey (Jeff) and Tammy Christian, granddaughters Danielle Wisbey, Michelle Wisbey, and Lindsay Gifford. She is also survived by her sister, Carol Honeycutt and brother, Alfred "Sonny" Delaunois, and several nieces and nephews.

 

Pat worked hard as a young mother to raise her two girls and was in on the beginning of computers coming to ISU as a key punch operator. She liked to say that the rest of her working years was in delivery, first delivering children on a school bus and later delivering packages for UPS, FedEx and Amerisourcebergen.

 

In her younger years Pat enjoyed going on trips with her girls and camping, horseback riding and mushroom hunting with her extended family. She loved to flower garden and attract wildlife to her yard. She fed the birds, squirrels and deer and enjoyed watching them for hours. She will be dearly missed.
