A bright light in the lives of everyone who knew her, PATRICIA ANN PAGE departed this life on Tuesday, June 16, 2020, at Samaritan Hospice in Mt. Holly, New Jersey. She was 63.
Patricia was born on March 25, 1957, in Wilson, North Carolina to the late Ruthevea and Jerome Williams. When she was a little girl, her family moved North, where she grew up in Trenton, New Jersey. She was educated in public school systems both in Trenton and in Brooklyn, New York. For most of her professional career, she worked in secretarial and administrative positions. She was employed by the New Jersey Department of Education. For the nearly three years, she has been a member of Faithful Missionary Baptist Church in Trenton.
Known as either “Tricia” or “Pat” to friends and family, she had a magnetic personality that attracted people to her. She was fun-loving and contented in her life. When Tricia was around, there was always lots of joy and laughter. She was known for her love of good music, singing, and dancing; everyone enjoyed watching her break into her James Brown moves. Tricia was also an old-movie buff and loved kicking back with a black-and-white film. Most of all, Tricia had a big heart, and she unselfishly lavished her love on others. She especially loved her family and was always there for them when they needed her.
In addition to her parents, Tricia was preceded in death by her brother, Jerome “Junie” Boykins; a sister-in-law, Sandra Williams; her great-grandparents, Nover and Joseph Boykins; her grandparents, Fannie and James Wingate; uncles, Curtis Harris, Cammon Benison, and Elthel Mae and Curt Horton; great aunt Donnie Mae Hooks aunts, and her aunts Elizabeth Ann Wingate and Constance Harris
