Patricia passed away in a tragic accident on July 21, 2016 while on vacation with family on what she noted as "a trip of a lifetime."
Patty was born in Claremore, OK on Dec. 9, 1955 to Junus and Gussie (Bradshaw) Bentley. She was raised and resided in Claremore, where she met the love of her life, Don Halfhill. They were married on December 20, 1975. God gifted them with a loving son and joy of their life, Donnie, and later an amazing daughter-in-law Beth.
Patty worked as an Accounts Administrator for Ira M. Green Construction for over 40 years and will be greatly missed. Patty was an inspirational and active part of her church home at Sageeyah Baptist where she served in many areas. She loved to sing and had a heart for working with the children. She enjoyed attending her nieces' and nephews' events and was lovingly referred to as their second Nana.
She looked forward to Saturday morning breakfasts with Don, Donnie and Beth and the many motorcycle rides with Don and their friends.
Patty is survived by her husband Don Halfhill; son Donnie and his wife Beth; her brother Jerry Bentley and wife Debbie; her sister Jeanne Gramman and husband Mike; her sister Joanne Green; her sister Melissa Owens and husband Scott; and her Goddaughters Jamie Campbell and Kristina Graybill.
Patty was also survived by her cherished Halfhill family: sister-in-law Connie and husband Glenn; brother-in-law Larry and wife Leslie; sister-in-law Kay; sister-in-law Carol and husband Coke; brother-in-law Denny and wife Jackie and brother-in-law Jeff.
Patty is succeeded in death by her parents, Junus and Gussie Bentley and her brother Bobby Bentley.
She will be laid to rest in the Garden of Love at Oakhaven Memorial Garden Cemetery in Claremore, Oklahoma.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the Sageeyah Baptist Church Music Ministry, 16522 South Highway 88, Claremore, OK 74017.
