  • Memoriam

PATRICIA ELLEN 'PAT' ATTEBERRY died December 9, 1992. She is survived by her husband, W. C. 'Chady' Atteberry, and daughters Barbara and Beverly.

We in engine land have lost a great lady. Pat has worked tirelessly to promote our steam and tractor show at Pawnee, Oklahoma, and all things concerning the old engines.

I can remember her sharp tongue when I did the wrong thing, but mostly I remember a heart full of compassion, help, and understanding when things didn't work out as I had planned.

To me Pat was one of the most precious things a person can have. She was my friend. When I was down, her hand was always out to pick me up. She. always told me, 'You do the best you can, and that is all anyone can expect.'

I feel we can lay Pat to rest with the words, 'Well Done Thou Good and Faithful Servant.'
