DANVILLE — Patricia T. Hines, 57, entered into eternal rest on Saturday, July 20, 2019 at the Geisinger Medical Center, Danville.
Born in Killeen, Texas, on April 1, 1962, she was the daughter of Norma (Johnston) Turner of Temple, Texas, and the late L.L. Turner. She was married to Steven F. Hines on June 1, 1985, at St. Luke’s Catholic Church in Temple, Texas. A honeymoon to the Pocono Mountains in Pennsylvania followed, where she told Steve that we will come back here one day to live. Her death breaks a union of 34 years.
Patricia was a 1980 graduate of Baker High School in Richardson, Texas, and a 1984 graduate of Stephen F. Austin State University with a degree in music and a 1998 graduate of Bloomsburg University with a degree in elementary education. It was at Stephen F. Austin that she met her husband Steve, through their membership in the Alpha Phi Omega Service Fraternity and the APO Little Sisters chapter.
She was a member of Holy Spirit Lutheran Church, Watsontown, where she was the choir director for 13 years. She also spent time as the Youth Group Leader and loved it dearly. She taught Music at Danville Middle School, and she was a substitute teacher in Milton and surrounding school districts. She also taught private piano, guitar and voice lessons out of her home. She loved teaching music more than anything, and once said that if we were rich, she would still teach music for free.
Some of her favorite activities involved playing games, from board games and card games to word search and crosswords, as well as being a Game Show channel fanatic.
She was preceded in death by her father and a brother, William Turner. She is survived by her mother, Norma Turner, sister-in-law Beverly Hines, brother-in-law Martin Hines, and many cousins and friends.
Friends and relatives will be received at Holy Spirit Lutheran Church, 10275 State Route 44, Watsontown, PA, on Thursday, July 25, 2019, from 3 to 4 p.m. A Memorial service will begin at 4 with Pastor Don L. Snyder Jr. officiating.
The arrangements are under the care of the Shaw Funeral Home, 400 N. Front St., Milton.
