Obituary for Patricia Broyles

Patricia  Broyles
Patricia Ann Stanakis Broyles, 78 of Cookeville, Tennessee passed from this life August 1, 2018 at her home in Cookeville peacefully.

Everyone called her Patsy or Nana. She was born August 7, 1939 in Picayune, Mississippi. She married her beloved husband, Ralph Douglas Broyles on December 22, 1957 in Sparta, Tennessee. Ralph truly was the love of her life and he felt equally the same.

Patsy was born again as a young adult at a Billy Graham crusade.

Patsy was preceded in death by her father, Joseph Francis Stanakis originally from Lithuania, Mother, Lena Arabella Snyder Stanakis from Pennsylvania, and her brother, Wayne Stanakis from Miami, Florida.

Throughout her life, she served the Lord to the best of her ability and loved and served others as well. She attended the Methodist Church most of her life and the last several years attended Cookeville Life Church with her family.

She and Ralph raised three children together. Douglas Dewayne Broyles, Kimberly Anne Broyles Agee, and Kevin Ralph Broyles. She led all three of her children to Jesus as well as others in a service of love to God.

Patsy was known for her hospitality of serving and cooking for others, and her passionate love for her family.

She deeply loved her precious grandchildren Andrew Michael Agee, Peyton Douglas Broyles, Morgan Christina Broyles McDowell, Robert Wayne Agee, Joseph Ralph Agee, James Allen Hill, Ashley Nicole Purdy.
Her family grew to welcome (daughter-in-law) Cyndi Broyles, (son-in-law) Robert Agee, (daughter-in-law) Susie Broyles, (grand daughter-in-law) Krissie Agee, (grand daughter-in-law) Logan Broyles, (grand son-in-law) Jesse McDowell, (grand daughter-in-law) Sara Hill, (grand son-in-law) Jordan Purdy and a future (grand daughter-in-law) Lexi Koger.

As a result of these precious one's love union, she welcomed Great Grandchildren; Tucker Agee, Bo Broyles, Roane Hill, Abram Hill, James Purdy, Jaxon Agee, and Payson Agee.

She also has three step-grandkids, Sam Agee, Kendall Agee, and Elle Agee.

Patsy faced the challenges of Parkinsons for 14 years as well as other illnesses, and is now in paradise with her Lord and Saviour.

There will be a private family graveside service at Oak Lawn Memorial Cemetery.
