Patty was born on July 22, 1939 to Earl and Verna (Lee) Jones in Kinston, North Carolina. After graduating high school in 1957, Patty went on to marry Jack Egan (widowed) and William Killoy. Patty was a wonderful and loving mother who gave her all to her family and grandkids. We were blessed to have her as our Mom. Family came first and was above all else to Patty, a value she instilled in all those around her. We will never be able to fill the space left behind by her.

She capped off her nursing career working as a school nurse in the Turner District in KC,KS and collected clothes, especially hats and gloves for the disadvantaged children there.
