Patricia was born on September 27, 1942 in Missouri Valley, IA., the daughter of Marvin and Martha Smith Jones. She attended Missouri Valley High and studied at the Church of God of Prophecy Bible College in Tennessee. Pat married Dudley Hiles III in April of 1961 and had two children. She took great pride in being a mother and a Pastor’s wife; Pat and Dudley parted ways in 1976. Pat was a line worker at General Mills from 1979 until her retirement in 2009.
She was a hard worker, not only in her work at General Mills, but also as a follower and teacher of Christ. Pat loved spending her time in the word of God, teaching bible classes, leading worship, and helping her community. She was a great Godly example on how to live life with Christ.
More than anything, Pat loved her family. She adored being a grandma and great grandma and loved spending time with them. She will be dearly missed by all those that knew and loved her.
John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
Memorials may be directed to the family.
