Pattie S. Younce, formerly of Bourbon, passed away peacefully surrounded by her family at Miller’s Merry Manor in Warsaw on Sunday, Aug. 14, 2022, at the age of 86.

Born in Monoquet on Feb. 24, 1936, she was the daughter of Eldon and Thelma Sumpter. Pattie was a 1954 graduate of Warsaw High School. After high school, she married Sam Younce on May 4, 1958, and together they spent more than 52 years before his passing in April of 2011. Pattie spent her life raising her two daughters, Beth and Kellie.

As the spunky woman Pattie was, she always lit up the room when she walked in. She always made sure to make her presence known. Pattie adored her friends and family, especially her grandchildren. She enjoyed going to all her grandchildren’s sporting events and was their biggest cheerleader.

Pattie loved to play euchre and bingo, spending lots of time playing bingo at Miller’s and giving her grandchildren the prizes she won. She also enjoyed cooking, travelling to see family, and watching her soap operas.

Those who survive with her memories to cherish include her daughter, Beth (Calvin) Woodard; grandchildren: Samantha (Jered) Pugh, Emily Keel, Colton (Brianna) Keel, and Hannah (Caleb Moore) Woodard; great-grandson, William Keel; brother, Jack (Carrol) Sumpter; sister, Peggy (Bernie) Beer; son-in-law, Bill (Heather) Keel; and special friends: Steve (Myra) Alexander and Amber (Bracken) Thomas. She is further survived by many nieces, nephews, extended family members and friends. She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Sam; daughter, Kellie Keel; and her brothers, Gene, Wayne and Jim Sumpter.
