PATRICIA “PATSY” BISE TILSON, age 84, passed away Thursday, October 17, 2019 at Valley Health Care Center, Chilhowie, Va.
Patsy was the picture-perfect sister, wife, mom, mother-in-law, mawmaw and friend. She loved her Lord and enjoyed singing and playing hymns. Patsy had her family in church and enjoyed that part of their lives. She was a wonderful cook and a fun people person which made grocery shopping an all-day event.

Her laugh, smile, and sweet way will be missed by all who knew and loved her.
