Thomson, McDuffie County

Patricia “Patty” Hobbs, 45, child of God, loving mother and friend, entered into the presence of the Lord on February 8, 2021.  

Patty made each of her 45 years count, and her life leaves behind a lasting impact on all who knew her.  She loved others well and deeply, and she was the person others came to for words of wisdom and advice.  She was the constant, steady friend who was always there whenever you needed her, regardless of how long it had been since you last spoke. She was the woman that filled the role of “mama” wherever she went, serving as a mentor to coworkers and those in her community.  Patty was not afraid to tell you what you needed to hear, even if it was not the answer you wanted.  If ever someone needed support or encouragement, Patty was always the first in line to cheer him or her on.  You could always count on her to be your biggest fan. Those who knew her will remember how she smiled with her entire face, how contagious her laughter was and how it would seem to bubble over and fill the room.  Patty’s joy was the kind of joy that was nearly tangible, and her spunk and sass will never be forgotten.

Patty spent much of her time with her husband, her children, and especially her only grandson Broxton.  Patty shared a special bond with her children and watching them grow into young adults filled her with utmost pride.  Becoming Mimi was also one of Patty’s greatest joys. In the words of Shell Silverstein’s book, The Giving Tree, “she loved a little boy very, very much – even more than she loved herself”.  Patty also enjoyed listening to her nephews Alex and Aaron Hintz play in their band, The Harlem Sons.  She was one of their biggest supporters and rarely missed a show.

She is preceded in death, and joyously welcomed into Heaven by her mother, Vernice Hintz; brother, Clifford Hintz; grandparents, Wesley and Dimple Meadows; and aunt, Faye Widener.

She is survived by her loving husband, Paul Hobbs of Thomson, GA;  children Jake Hobbs (Caitlin O’Brein) of Hardyville, SC; Dallas Coleman of Dearing, GA; and Ashley Coleman of Thomson, GA; and grandson, Broxton Richards.  She is also survived by her parents-in-law Sandra and Mike Turner and Beatrice and Everette Hobbs, as well as siblings Michael Hintz (Lisa), Jerry Hintz (Season), Barbara Hintz, Stacey Cox (Eugene); many nieces and nephews and close family friends, Deanie & Preston Fielder.
