Patricia Ann Dodson

Patricia Ann Dodson, 71, of Kansas City, Missouri passed away peacefully on the morning of January 14, 2017 at home with family at her bedside.  Mrs. Dodson was born October 24, 1945 in Kansas City, Missouri.

Patsy was a loving wife, mother, and friends whose tender heart and caring ways will be sorely missed. She was a devoted member of multiple Catholic Church parishes during her life, as she lent her talents on the piano and organ to the churchgoers of St. Michael’s Catholic Church, Our Lady of Peace Catholic Church, and St. Ann’s Catholic Church. Patsy also greatly enjoyed sewing and quilting. These hobbies were really life-long passions that led her to Switzerland twice for sewing conventions and found her on countless “Quilt Shop Hops” around the Kansas City area.

Patsy is survived by her husband Bob, son Nick, son Trent along with grandson Taylor and granddaughter Kensie, sisters Thelma Hemenway and Eileen Pratt, and brothers Louis and Charles Lux.

Services will be held on Tuesday, January 24, 2017 at St. Ann’s Catholic Church, 10109 E. Lexington Ave, Independence, Missouri 64053. There will be a visitation at 10:00AM and a Memorial Mass at 11:00AM. Services will be followed by a reception in the church hall.

In lieu of flowers the family requests that donations be made to a fund in Patsy’s name where donations will go exclusively to research in order to find a cure for ALS. Please visit to donate.

    Pat had a gentle soul. I enjoyed talking with her many times about her greatest joy, Nick and my greatest joy, my son. She was so proud of Nick and anything he did. It always made me happy to feel how much she loved her son. Then there was her taking home that big fluffy dog “because he was just too nice to send to the animal shelter”. I missed Pat when she stopped working with us. But no one will miss her more than Nick. My condolences to you and your family.

    I too worked with Pat and so enjoyed her kind, soft spoken way. And she was a witty storyteller. Godspeed to all.

    The sad truth is unless and until a disabled person burns themself to death outside 10 Downing Street protest will not get reported by the marsetinam media.
