Patricia Gwin “Patty” Namias, 59, passed away Tuesday, January 27, 2015 with family by her side. Mrs. Namias was born in Niles, Michigan and grew up in Metairie, LA, where she attended St. Mary Magdalen Elementary School, Riverdale High School & Jocelyn Daspit Beauty School. In Metairie Mrs. Namias met and later married her childhood sweetheart 41 years ago. Her husband’s job opportunities enabled her to continue touching lives in Atlanta, GA, Memphis, TN and finally Rolesville, NC. She never crossed anyone’s path without leaving a very special piece of herself with them. In addition to being a devoted wife she was also a devoted Mom. Patty’s unwavering love and support for her son was a constant throughout his childhood, high school, college and adult life. Patty greatly enjoyed the time she spent with friends and family traveling for her son’s football games and her creative ability was apparent in all that she touched. She was at home on the beach and her most favorite times of all were with her husband and son who filled and completed her beyond anything else.
A Memorial mass will be celebrated at 11 o’clock, Saturday January 31, 2015 at Saint Catherine of Siena Catholic Church.
