Patricia Ann Johns

July 24, 1944 - April 21, 2019

Patricia Ann (Hiatt) Johns, age 74, of Ozark, Missouri, went to be with the Lord on Easter Morning, April 21st, 2019. Patti was born on July 24th, 1944 in Martinsville, Indiana, to Willie Everett Hiatt and Raydella Hamilton Hiatt.

Throughout her life, while growing up on a small farm in Morgantown, Indiana, Patti was very much involved in raising and caring for animals. She was involved in 4H, showcasing sheep and dogs, and had a very special place in her heart for horses.

She graduated high school in Morgantown, Indiana, in 1962, and then attended Baptist Bible College in Springfield, Missouri, studying Teaching and Missionary work.

While at BBC, she met Walter Wilson, whom she married in August 1963. To this union were born two children, William and Karen.

Patti worked for many years in Jefferson County, Missouri, specializing in the care of children with autism.

In her later years, she came back to her first love of animals and worked for several years at Singinghearts Farm in Rogersville.

Patti is survived by her daughter, Karen and son-in-law, Todd Wichmann, of Willard, Missouri; her son, William Wilson of Terryville, Connecticut; six grandchildren, Joshua, Sarah, Jacob, Sammuel, Rebecca and Jonah; and five great-grandchildren, Jackson, Kinsley, Rylynn, Cody and Wilson.

Visitation will be held on Friday, April 26th at 10 a.m. – 12 noon at Meredith-Clark Funeral Home Cremation & Personalization Center in Morgantown. A graveside service will follow at East Hill Cemetery in Morgantown where Patti will be laid to rest next to her parents and brother.

Care and arrangements have been entrusted to Walnut Lawn Funeral Home, Ltd.-DeGraffenreid-Wood-Crematory, Springfield, Missouri.

Karen and Bill, Since I am unable to attend your mother's service, I wanted to send my deepest sympathies to your families. My grandmother and your grandfather were brother and sister.
