Cole, Patrica J.

March 17, 1933 — January 6, 2021

On March 17th, 1933 Patricia Jean McClement (known to family and friends as Pat), was born to Jeanne Isabel and William Hugh McClement in Independence, MO.

As a child, Pat’s father worked for the Missouri Highway Department and had to relocate about every eight months, resulting in her attending 21 different schools by the time she was a junior in high school.

Pat met the love of her life, John Cole, at a chili dinner hosted by her parents. They were wed on September 17, 1950 and were happily married for 70 years.

In 1955 they welcomed their first son Russell, two years later in 1957 marked the addition of twin girls, Cindy and Sandy, and in 1959 the family became complete with their second son, Randy.

Pat enjoyed babysitting for over 25 years; encouraging and molding young minds. She also enjoyed cross stitching, playing Scrabble, a variety of card games, and was an avid bowler, participating in up to three leagues per week for 43 years. John built her a beautiful china cabinet which she filled with a large collection of bells.

Pat was preceded in death by her mother, Jeanne Pratt McClement; father, William McClement; brother William McClement; and her sister Doris Miller.

She is survived by her husband John R Cole; her children, Russell Cole (Star), Cindy Leibinger (Jay), Sandy Adams (Robert), and Randy Cole (Barbie); and two sisters Karen Stair (Terry), and Annette Waugh (Walter). She was blessed with 11 grandchildren, 12 great-grandchildren, and with several nieces and nephews.

She will be greatly missed by family and friends.

Cole, Patrica J.'s Guestbook

I could not have chosen a better mother in law than Pat. I will forever cherish our beautiful memories and friendship. We absolutely loved music time every morning after breakfast when we sang Patsy Cline songs and many others together. Music truly is medicine for the soul. Her face would shine when we put on music. Alzheimer's has to be one of the most vicious things I have ever seen and although I already miss her more than words can say, I am grateful her sweet mind is at rest. I look forward to the time when I can welcome her back in the resurrection to life on earth as promised in God's Word the Bible; never to have to grow old, get sick, and die again (John 5:28. 29, Isaiah 33:24. Psalms 37:29) Revelation 21:4 is such a comforting scripture, "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." I love you dear Pat. And I can't wait to see you again in perfect health. mind and body.

The Cole family were our neighbors when we were children. Our families spent many evenings together with John & Pat playing cards with our Mom & Dad, as all of us children played inside and out. Much laughter was shared and many memories were made. The Cole family was a large part of our growing up years. To John, Russell, Cindy, Sandy, Randy and the rest of the Cole family, our deepest sympathies. Tim & Terry Donnelly
