If loving others and being loved were the standards of measure for a life well lived, the life of Patricia “Pat” Helen Hudson Parr of West Point, Georgia, was lived to the fullest.

On Friday, July 25, 2020, Pat was called to her eternal home. Pat was born in Atlanta on Feb 6, 1937, the only child of Hazel (nee Fincher) and Eugene Hudson. In that hospital nursery she and her husband of 51 years, William “Billy” Thomas Parr, Jr., met. They remained smitten with each other throughout life.

Pat grew up in Decatur, Georgia, graduated from Decatur High School and went to Georgia Women’s State College and Georgia State University to pursue a degree in education. At the age of 34 she encountered Jesus Christ and her life was never the same.
