Patricia married William R. “Bill” McElyea on May 17, 1986 in Dallas where they resided for many years before moving to San Antonio 17 years ago. She had such class and style with a simple sophistication. Pat always put her family first with so much pride in her husband, children and grandchildren. She was a member of the Central Christian Church.
