Patricia Merritt

Patricia R. Merritt, 79, of Crestview, FL passed away Friday, June 12, 2020 at home.

Patricia was born November 3, 1940 in Wheeling, West Virginia and moved to Crestview three years ago to live with her daughter from Brilliant, OH. Patricia was a retired clerk with the United States Postal Service.

She was preceded in death by her parents, William and Blanch Loper; husband, Larry Merritt; son, Tracy Merritt; and three sisters, Adeline Loper, Betty Richie, Blanch Charnock.

She is survived by her daughter, Dawn Onuffer (Dave), of Crestview, FL, whom she resided with; brother, Albert Loper of Marietta, GA; four grandchildren, Allan Henry of Crestview, FL., Brooklyn Onuffer, of Crestview, FL, Lindsay Onuffer of Crestview, FL, Tiah Merritt of Brilliant, OH; and two great-grandchildren: Jade and Ezmay Henry.

Patricia was a kind, loving, and generous person. Generous to a fault. She would often give until she had nothing left for herself. She loved being active and going to yard sales, flea markets, and bingo. She loved her cats, gardening, and birdwatching.

Patricia was marred with a chronic disease that limited her mobility in her last couple of years. However, she is no longer in any pain and is in the arms of Jesus.
