Patsy Mitcham Johnson passed peacefully in her sleep on Feb. 19, 2023. Patsy was born July 18, 1940, in Chambers County, Alabama, where she lived all of her young life.
She attended Lafayette High School, where she was Homecoming Queen, and it was here she met her husband, Ashley Johnson. Patsy and Ashley were high school sweethearts, and were happily married for over 50 years.
Patsy and Ashley moved to Auburn, Alabama where they raised their family and made their home. Patsy found a passion for real estate, and is a former president of the Lee County Board of Realtors. She was hard working, and fiercely independent. She loved Auburn and all it had to offer, and found so much joy in helping people find their home here.
Patsy was the definition of a southern woman. She was the ultimate hostess, and was as passionate about cooking and sewing, as she was about God and gardening. She devoted herself to her family and friends, and was happiest when her home was filled with those she loved.
She was also a collector of people in the best possible way. She was the “mom” to those who did not have one, and always opened her home to those who had nowhere to go. Patsy was loving and loyal, and when she brought you into her life you knew you had a friend forever.
Patsy had a loveable personality and was rarely seen without a big smile. She made everyone she greeted feel like they were her favorite person. She truly enjoyed life, and all it had to offer. Whether it was bridge club or garden club, to her annual holiday party, or simply sitting on her beloved back porch with friends, Patsy’s life was filled with joy.
Patsy and Ashley had a beautiful family; Terry and John Anglin, Hannah and Zack Anglin, Nick Anglin, Jo and Scott Crawford, Gina and Alan Lee, Bo, Myra and Carri Johnson.
