Patsy Ann Stephens Law passed away peacefully April 6, 2018 at the age of 83 after a long battle with Alzheimer’s Disease. Patsy was born March 22, 1935 in Carrollton, Georgia to Robert Golson Stephens and Malinda (Bailey) Stephens. She graduated from high school in Marshalltown, Iowa and returned to Georgia where she began working in Atlanta. It was there that she met her husband of nearly 62 years, Howard Vance Law.
Howard and Patsy were married June 10, 1956 and began their lives together in Arlington, Virginia. Howard’s career took them to China Lake, California; Macon, Georgia; Mobile, Alabama; and back to Fairfax, Virginia before retiring here in Casper. Along the way they were blessed with three children: Vicki Law Burger, Vance Stephen Law, and Howard Andrew Law.
Patsy enjoyed RVing with the family and many a weekend was spent in the mountains of Virginia. She was also an accomplished seamstress and floral arranger, employing her talents to arrange flowers for the altar of Trinity Lutheran Church. Shortly after arriving in Casper she had surgery for breast cancer and subsequent chemotherapy and radiation. She went on to use her experiences to guide and support others through the Casper Angels Program. In addition, Patsy spent many years with Howard delivering Meals on Wheels.
The great joy of Patsy’s life was her grandchildren, Michael (Sara), Alex (Holly), Whitney, Max, Stephen (Brooke), Will, and Drew (Devan), as well as her great-grandchildren, Cayden, Cooper, Libby, Brooklyn, Reagan, Hayden, Avery, and Spencer.
Patsy was preceded in death by her parents; son-in-law, Dr. Gerald Burger; and great-grandson, Jacob Burger. She is survived by her husband, Howard; children, Vicki, Vance (Carole), and Andy (Teresa); grandchildren; great-grandchildren; and her brother, Douglas (Waldi) Kirk of Indiana.
Services to celebrate Patsy’s victory in Christ will be held at Trinity Lutheran Church on April 28th at 10:30 am. The family requests that any donations be made to Trinity Lutheran Church or Wyoming Dementia Care.
