On November 16, 1954 while living in Peno, Oklahoma, the late Tom and Daisy Poole welcomed their daughter, Patricia Diane McGill, to their family. Along with her parents, Patricia is preceded in death by her daughter, Kaneisha Johnson; four sisters, Charlie Mae Logan, Shirley Vann, Be y Wilburn, and Donna Branley-Feble; and two brothers, Thomas and Robert Poole.
Patricia’s early education was in the Roland Public Schools in Roland, Oklahoma. Years later, after moving to Fort Smith, she obtained her GED. Patricia was a loving mother and a homemaker. One of her favorite pastimes in life was traveling and spending time with her family and friends. Patricia became a member of the Northside Church of God in Christ. She loved her church family just as much as she loved the Lord. She is now an eternal member of heaven and will be greatly missed by all who loved and treasured her.
Patricia leaves to cherish her loving memories, three sons, Brian D. Thomas of Kansas City, Missouri, Richard E. (Kineta) and Christopher J. Johnson both of Fort Smith, Arkansas; two sisters, Nancy Porter of Sacramento, California and Mary Turner of Norman, Oklahoma; 20 grandchildren; several great-grandchildren, and a host of relatives and friends.
