Patricia (Patty) Kay Svec

Patricia (Patty) Kay Svec passed away peacefully on 4/27/2016 at the age of 65. 

She was born on March 14, 1951 in Richmond, Texas to Adolph and Pearl Pasteka.

On June 9, 1973 she married John Svec. They lived the past 38 years in Sealy. John and Patty have two daughters, Bethany and Megan.

Patty was a wife, homemaker, and Loan Secretary at Citizens State Bank. She recently retired from the bank after 33 years. She was a coworker, a friend, and a mother figure to those she worked with at the bank. Fellow employees seemed to gravitate to her for conversation, advice, or an opinion. Her friendly smile and face were her hallmark trait. She enjoyed meeting new people and loved to talk.

Patty was a member of Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Sealy. Relay For Life held a special place in her heart and she looked forward to participating each year. She enjoyed taking vacations with family and friends. She also enjoyed playing dominoes and cards, cross-stitching, and making homemade noodles. Many an evening was spent bird watching in the backyard. She particularly enjoyed the yearly migration of hummingbirds.

Patty is survived by her husband John and daughters Bethany Talley and Megan Pritchett. Patty was known as “Nanny” to her six grandchildren; Maeve Talley, Orrin Talley, Eamon Talley, Peyton Pritchett, Andrew Pritchett, and Joseph Pritchett. Nanny enjoyed reading stories, baking, fishing, taking walks, and picking flowers with her grandchildren. 

Patty leaves behind many friends and loving family members. Her ever-present smile will be missed by all. Knesek Funeral Home in Sealy in charge of arrangements.

Funeral Services were held on Friday, April 29, 2016 at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church at 2:00 pm with interment in the Church Cemetery. Rev. Eric Pitre officiating.
