A family visitation and memorial service will be held at 1:00 pm, for Patricia, on Saturday, March 26, 2011, at Heartland Funeral Home.
Patricia T. Fairbanks was born on August 18, 1940 to Hyle and Thelma (Anderson) Fairbanks in Puyallup, WA. She was raised and educated in the same area and graduated from high school there. Patricia went on to work for the Rainier State School for the mentally challenged. She was a care giver for over 30 years at the school until her health forced her to retire.
Pat then moved to the Springfield, Missouri area for a few years and then she relocated to Sioux Falls four years ago to be closer to her sons and grandchildren.
Patricia will be dearly missed by her two sons; Mike (Cherie) Connolly and David Connolly, both of Sioux Falls, ten grandchildren, and two brothers; David Fairbanks, Orville, CA and Warren Fairbanks of Ada, OK.
She was preceded in death by her parents.
