Sometimes life seems like a test of how much one can endure. After serving her country in the US Army from 1983-1987, Patricia Jones owned her own construction business and worked as a construction site safety supervisor.
But the past few years have certainly tested Patricia. In recent years she has lost a grandson and a son. She was in a motorcycle crash that left her with ongoing medical issues and debilitating pain. In 2018 she came home from work to find her home flooded due to a water leak. The leak caused extensive damage to her kitchen and living room and a bedroom and bathroom, which was only partially covered by insurance.
She has spent years trying to make repairs herself. But the daunting amount of damage inflicted on her home and her health has left her struggling to deal with the repairs needed on her home.
Patricia’s family demonstrates a long history of military service. Her father is a retired decorated Vietnam Era/Korea veteran. Her sister, who along with her family perished in the Pan Am 103 terrorist attack, was also a decorated veteran. Patricia’s oldest brother and his wife are retired from US Army and she has several nephews and nieces currently serving.
As a motorcycle rider and business owner, Patricia championed and supported many causes. We have the opportunity to demonstrate appreciation for her service and compassion.
