Patricia J. “Patti” Hall • March 30, 2019
Patricia J “Patti” Hall, 68, of Pensacola passed away Saturday, March 30, 2019 after a courageous battle with cancer. She was surrounded by her family.
Patti was born in Columbus, Ohio, raised in Ponchatoula, Louisiana and has resided in the Pensacola area for many years. She is an American Indian of Muscogee decent. She was preceded in death by her parents, Patricia Carter and Wilbur Spangler; brothers, Daniel and Joe Sain; sister Celestine
Survivors include her daughter, Patty Anne Hall; two sons, William “Bubba” Meredith (Totsie) and Michael Meredith; sister, Kathy Sellers; brother, Richard Sain (Debra); grandchildren, Kiersten Hall (Christen), Kelsie Hall (Matt), Kaylee Stortz-Hall and Glenn Meredith; nieces, Lynn (Mirko) and Cindy (Brian); and nephews, Donnie (Joanne) and Billy (Kristen); uncle, Ted “Bo” Williams; aunt, Juanita “E” Tatum; special family friends, Foy Gilmore, Lethia Sellers and Brack Ellison; cousin and best friend, Kim Chaudron; numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
Patti wore many hats throughout her journey. She was a daughter, a sister, an aunt, a mother, a grandmother and a cousin to almost everyone through some family line, thanks to her love for Genealogy. She loved digging up the past and searching for long lost clues. She was able to help so many people find family members, both past and present and some people who didn’t even know that their family lineage held secrets. She never gave up hope and found her long lost sister Celestine and her family. Patti also dove into her English line and discovered all the amazing family waiting there with open arms. She made an impact on so many lives including the neighborhood kids that she’d take to raise and was always there for.
Patti enjoyed her time with the Indians. She loved to travel to the ceremonies and meeting more family. She embraced and never stopped learning about her Native heritage. She recently received, with great honor, her Indian name “Vlahoke”.
Patti would light up when she had a new victim to share her wealth of knowledge with,
whether it be their family history or Native culture. She loved being at the Cultural Compound in Weogufka Alabama, helping to educate and bring back the native ways of the land to anyone but especially to those of Mvskoke decent.
