Sarah “Patsy” Tate Tannett, age 86, of Black Mountain, NC, joined her beloved husband Bruce in heaven on Monday, February 14, 2022, at her residence.

Sarah was born on January 20, 1936, in McDowell County, NC to the late Charles Russell Tate and Raye Cooper Tate.

She worked as a teacher’s aide at Black Mountain Primary School until her retirement. Sarah loved working with the first graders and kindergarteners so much. She also enjoyed gardening and keeping her yard pretty with flowers and plants. Most of all, she loved her family dearly and she will be greatly missed.

Those left behind to cherish her memory are her two daughters, Maria Tannett of Swannanoa, NC and Laura Moyer of Concord, NC; one grandson, Billy Ray Ricketts, III of Black Mountain; and a brother, Frank (Brenda) Tate of Old Fort, NC.

A Graveside service will be held on Monday, February 21, 2022 at 2:00 PM at Mountain View Memorial Park in Black Mountain conducted by Pastor Tim Worthington.
