August 7, 1945 ~ March 16, 2019 (age 73)

Pat Wilcox, 73, of Carlsbad, New Mexico, passed away peacefully in her sleep, Saturday, March 16, 2019 at her home.  Pat was born on August 7, 1945, in Seminole, TX to Lawrence and Alta Mae Scogin.

Pat met the love of her life in High School and immediately knew she would spend the rest of her life with him.  They married on October 14, 1961 and spent the next 57 years together as one. She was a kind and caring person, she loved her family fiercely and loved spending quality time with them and her beloved friends. She enjoyed playing games on her iPad, making certain everyone who visited her home were fed, talking on the phone with her family and friends, going out to eat, and her little dog Freckles. Pat was the epitome of love, and that will carry on in all who had the joy of being in her life.
