Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
Patricia Joan Gray, 81, of Lee’s Summit, MO passed away September 10, 2023. Mrs. Gray was born December 11, 1941 in Kansas City, MO. At the age of 16, and still in high school, she married the love of her life, John Robert Tyner of Kansas City, MO. After his untimely passing in 1988 she met James Franklin Gray in a grief therapy session. James (Jim) had lost his wife, Barbara to cancer. Patricia and James married in 1989 in Kansas City, MO. After 33 years of marriage, James passed away last September, 2022.
In 2012 Patricia experienced the anguish no mother should know-the loss of a child. She was preceded in death by her youngest son, Matthew Tyner, who died at 42 years old in a line-of-duty accident while serving in the Colorado Springs, CO Police Department.
Survivors include: two sons, Steve (Wanda) Tyner and Jeff Tyner; sister, Linda “Linny” Irvin; and multiple nieces, nephews, and close friends.
Patricia’s family requests donations in her memory to Wayside Waifs and the American Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
