GRANDVIEW, Mo. Patricia Ann (McCabe) Persinger passed away Sunday Aug. 6, 2017. She was born, in Salina, Kan., to Jack and Glacie (Harri) McCabe, Aug. 30.

Pat grew up in Culver, Kan., graduating from Culver High School, were she was a cheerleader and homecoming queen. Pat thought school was entertainment, first and education second. She loved the Culver community and continued to attend the reunions.

Bell until her early retirement in 1991 to start her own construction company, "Double P"; later to retire due to a serious illness.

Pat enjoyed volunteering at the Chestnut Theater, and Wayside Waifs because of her passion for animals. She and her husband were youth sponsors at Colonial Presbyterian Church; this was her 50th year as a member.
