Patricia Ann Robinson was born July 19, 1945 in Gary, Indiana to Francine Banks and Willie Washington. She was reared in Chillicothe. She was educated at Garrison School and Chillicothe High School.
Pat was a humble person and had a great love for God. She was a faithful member of the Mt. Zion Baptist Church of Chillicothe. She accepted Jesus as her Savior and was baptized at the age of 11.

Pat was an enthusiastic fan of “The Price Is Right,” “The Young and the Restless” and “Judge Judy.” She was also an avid reader and was known for her recipe for “fried chicken” and for her “cornbread” that was as light as cake.
