Share This Obituary

A special lovely lady, 90 years young was suddenly called home by God on January 22, 2018. Although born in Muskogee Oklahoma on 9/11/1927 it took her only a few weeks to convince her parents to move to Houston. Here she grew and flourished. Patty, as she was known all her life, attended parochial and public school, and was able to enter Rice Institute in 1944 while WWII was still going strong. After the war ended, a number of WWII Veterans were accepted into Rice, and one lucky former airman, Donald Hoyt, won her heart. They were married in 1947 while both in school, and a few years later, both had graduated.

Together they produced 7 remarkable children and eventually had 8 grandchildren and 9 great grandchildren. Patty and Don celebrated 70 years of marriage in June of 2017 and were looking forward to 75 when a strange virus struck them both down in January. Although Don survived, Patty did not.
