Patsy L. McMahon

August 8, 1946 ~ November 5, 2021 (age 75)


Patsy L. McMahon, 75, of Ooltewah, went home to be be with the Lord November 5, 2021 while surrounded by her loving family from Chattanooga and Texas. 

Pat graduated from Central High School with honors and went on to work as a computer analyst traveling all over the United States. She also worked in Boerne, Texas with one of her favorite people, ophthalmologist, Dr. Kathryn Hubbard. Wherever Pat was employed she made friends for life and you never forgot the mark she made on your life. 

She was preceded in death by her husband, Brent McMahon; her son Kenneth (Kacey) Rogers;  daughter , Angela McMahon; parents, Columbus E. and Betty (Parker) Ford; Janie Masters, (childhood) friend for life; niece, Carrie April Ford; sister in laws, Debbie Ford, Judy (McCullough) Ford. 

She is survived by her son, Michael Brent (Sally) McMahon of La Vernia, TX, daughter, Jennifer (Josh) Butler of Corpus Christy, TX, four brothers and two sisters; Larry (Patsy) Ford, David Ford, Steve (Judy) Ford, Randy Ford, Shirley (Dennis) Allison, Judy (Robert) Mock, all of Chattanooga; seven grandchildren, two great grandchildren, brother in law, Mike McMahon (Donna) sister in law, Mickie (Thomas) Scholwinski, aunt Midge of Ooltewah, TN, aunt Helen of East Ridge, TN, many loved cousins, nephews and nieces.  Not to ever forget the enormous amount of friends that she worked with, became best friends with or showed love too. 

Pat honestly NEVER met a stranger. Whoever she encounter throughout her life she shared the gospel with. If you met her, you heard about the Lord Jesus Christ and she was quick to tell you that you better get right with God or you will never enter the Kingdom of Heaven. 

If it wasn’t Pats sweet, kind nature, her adorable southern accent, her unselfish heart to give, that you fell in love with, then it had to be her curls. I’ll just say it the way a complete stranger put it, “You have definitely left your mark on this world. You are my hero!”

Thanks to every individual who shared in Pats life. I know you will miss her deeply. Just remember Pat wants to see all of us in the future. Make sure you will be there

There will be a private memorial service with her family.
