Patricia Hale

August 16, 1937 ~ June 4, 2019 (age 81)

Patricia Ann (Robinson) Hale, 81, of Arcadia, passed away at her home on Tuesday, June 4, 2019. She was born on August 16, 1937, in Tipton, to Harry and Lavella (Wheatley) Robinson.  Patricia was a 1956 graduate of Tipton High School. She married the love of her life, Kenneth Hale, on July 3, 1957 and they were blessed to share nearly 62 years of marriage. Patricia retired from General Motors in Kokomo in 1997 after many years of service.

Patricia was a very loving and caring woman. She loved being a wife and mother. Patricia’s family and friends gained a lot of encouragement just by being around her because she was always so full of joy. Her Catholic faith was very important to her, and she was an example to others. Patricia loved to travel. She especially enjoyed visiting the state of Arizona, as well as Brown County, IN. In her spare time Patricia liked fishing, watching sports, following nascar, crocheting, gambling, and playing nickel & dime poker. Above all, Patricia valued every moment she spent with those she loved. She will be greatly missed!

Those left to carry on Patricia’s legacy of love are her husband, Kenneth Hale; children, Cindy (Mark) Compton, Tom (Mindy) Hale, Tim (Sandy) Hale, and Eddy (Angie) Hale; 6 grandchildren and 7 great grandchildren; siblings, Helen Snyder, Nita (Mike) Kelley, Bill (Joyce) Robinson, Mike (Jane) Robinson, Roberta (Gilbert) Phelps, Dot (Mike) Chapel, Debbie (Bruce) Farrer; and several nieces and nephews. Patricia was preceded in death by her parents and her brother, James Robinson.

 Please feel free to leave an online condolence or share a special memory of Patricia with her family on her tribute wall.
