Patricia A. Forester, 76, passed away Friday, May 17, 2019.

She was a graduate of Kirkman High School and a member of the Baptist faith. If anything could be said of Patricia, she was an amazing mother and wife who loved her family and friends. She never met a stranger, and she was loved by everyone she met. One of the things that stood out the most about her personality was her true sense of compassion, she would do anything for anyone in need. Patricia also loved to watch Nascar, the Braves, and the Lady Vols. One of her favorite pastimes was spending time in the Smoky Mountains with her husband Joe and her grandchildren.

Mrs. Forester was preceded in death by her parents, R.D. and Ruby Rich and sons, Michael Dean and Joe Kenneth Forester, Jr.

Patricia is survived by her husband of 55 years, Joe Kenneth Forester, Sr.; daughter, Tammy (Lonnie) Adams; son, Kevin “Bubba” (Brenda) Forester; grandchildren, Chris Dean, Brittany (Alex) Harbison, Alicia Adams, Nicholas Dean, Didema Higgins and Mackenzie Barksdale; great-grandchildren, Kialea Dean and Dylan & Luke Harbison; sisters, Linda (Don) Martin and Kathy Rich; daughter-in-law, Nancy Wagner and best friend, JoAnn Matthews.

The family will receive friends on Monday, May 20, from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. at Maple Grove Baptist Church at 9525 Birchwood Pike, Harrison. A memorial service will follow at 2 p.m. with Pastor Lloyd Harvill officiating.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to be made to the Highway 58 Volunteer Fire Department Food & Toy Drive.
