Priscilla Lane “Pat” Fowler Gibson, 80, of Dalton, Georgia, passed away Saturday morning, July 31, 2021, peacefully in her sleep at her home.

She was the daughter of the late Ernest Jefferson and Bernice Metcalf Fowler and was preceded in death by her sisters, Ernestine Barber and Vivian Fowler; and brothers, Ray “Frog” Fowler, Dewitt Fowler and Derrell Fowler.

Pat was a 1959 graduate of Dalton High School, where she was homecoming queen and head majorette of the Dalton Catamount Marching Band. She was also a longtime member of First Baptist Church of Dalton, where she served in various roles through the years, including High School Sunday School teacher, Girls in Action and Acteen leader, and New Member Committee.

Her sweet smile, friendly personality and secretarial skills landed her many jobs in local businesses, including Coldwell Banker Kinard Realty, Belk Realty, Professional Eye Associates and Dr. Bates Bailey’s Practice.

Pat served as “Queen Mum” of her “Sassy Southerners” Red Hat Society Chapter for many years. She also reignited her love of tap dancing as a member of the local MarSel Dancers. It brought her great joy to perform and dance for others in the community.

The family would also like to acknowledge and say thank you to her wonderful group of caregivers.

Funeral services will be held at 4 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 4, at First Baptist Church of Dalton with the Reverends Jonathan Barlow, Phillip Cannon, and Larry Flanagan officiating.

The family will receive friends prior to the service from 2-4 p.m. in the Church Parlor. Pat will be laid to rest in West Hill Cemetery.
