Patricia Deloris Young Elmore, an earthly angel, was born on November 11, 1953 to the union of James Wilson Young, Sr. and Velma Lee Anders Young. Of this union were four children: Gwendolyn Young Drayton of Monroe, LA, the late Patricia Elmore, Winifred Veronica (Jerome) Mayo, and James (Shirley) Young, Jr. all of Eros, La.
At an early age, she united with the Robinson Chapel C.M.E. Church of Eros, La where she remained a dedicated and faithful member until her demise. She was steadfast in her unwavering love of God and she displayed her devotion through countless acts of service and diligence within the church.
Patricia attended Jasper Henderson in her early years and later graduated from Grambling State University where she obtained an Associates Degree in Business Administration. However, she pursued a career in Cosmetology in which she spent the last 37 years touching lives through her love of beauty and people. She was indeed special to others through her “hair ministry”.
Patricia Elmore united in holy matrimony to Johnny Wayne Elmore who preceded her in death. To this union, two children were born. She was devout Christian as well as a devoted wife and mother. She was the Secretary of Robinson Chapel C.M.E. Church,
Patricia Elmore grazed the hearts of all those she encountered with her infectious smile and monumental heart. She was known to sacrifice her needs for the good of her family and friends, selfless in her acts of others. She had a quiet strength and her legacy was “love”, which will forever reign in the hearts and minds of those she inspired and guided along her earthly journey. God put His angel here on earth in the midst of our presence and her work is done. Her journey here is complete and God summoned for her return.
Her priceless memories will indefinitely be cherished by her two daughters, Kanitra (LaMario) Hicks of Chatham, La and Berkita Elmore of Calhoun, La; two grandchildren, Khy’lee Elmore and Khloe’ Hicks; three sisters, Gwendolyn Drayton, Veronica Mayo, and Olga Haulcy; one brother, James Young, Jr.; one niece whom she reared like a daughter Chasity Young; special niece Clemetriss Thomas; nephews Lawelldon Thomas, Maurice Mayo, and Cory (Melissa) Young; a cousin that was reared like a brother, Billy Anders; a god daughter, DeShannon Walton; a godson, Kerry Stringfellow; a great grandson she raised as a son Kesjan Harris; a special cousin and friend, Caroline Williams; and a host of other relatives and friends. There were so many family and friends that were near and dear to her heart that she would love to have included.
