Patricia Sue (Farmer) Wilson

January 10, 1949 ~ July 9, 2019 (age 70)


Patricia  Sue Farmer Wilson left her earthly body to be reunited with the love her her life on July 9, 2019. Patricia was born on January 10, 1949 to Juanita Marie Cline Farmer in Crossville, TN. She was raised by her loving and faithful grandparents Oscar Smith Cline and Myra Lee Sauceman Cline.

Patricia married the love of her life Paul Harrison Wilson on May 21, 1966.  They lived in Sparta, Tn and owned WTZX radio station until Paul’s death on March 24, 1991.

Patricia was preceded in death by her mother, grandparents, maternal aunt Nanny Sue Bumbalough, sister Kathy Farmer and her loving husband.

She is survived by her daughters, Sonya Felice Wilson Mooneyhan and husband Aron, Shana Leigh Wilson Gago and husband Ernesto. Her four grandchildren, Sara Myra-Marie Mooneyhan Chambers and husband Dylan, Patrick Harrison Gago, Patricia Halyee Gago and Paulina Marie Gago. Two brothers James “Smitty” Carney and Larry Farmer. She is also survived by her special friend, honorary sister and caregiver, Janell Vaughn.

Patricia lived life to the fullest traveling and living abroad in Grenada, Santa Domingo and Venezuela before returning to Cookeville, Tn permanently  in 2004. She was a force to be reckoned with cheating death on more than one occasion. She cheated her first death in 1991 when an undercurrent carried her out to sea as she was seeking comfort in the North Atlantic Ocean in St. Lucia. The coast guard was called in hopes to retrieve her body and were amazed that she managed to survive what was meant to be a death trap from the moment her toe touched the forbidden waters. She has been cheating death ever since surviving multiple accidents, illnesses and unbelievable adventures. She surpassed her nine lives many times over but her body simply could not carry on any longer.

Patricia will forever be remembered as a fighter and survivor. She adored her grandchildren and dedicated the past 22 years to showering them all with her love and affection.
