Patsy "Pat" Mcwhorter

June 22, 1944 — January 17, 2023


Patsy “Pat” McWhorter, 78, of Odessa was called home to be with her Lord and Savior on Tuesday, January 17, 2023.

Pat was born on June 22, 1944, in Malvern, Arkansas, to Randolph and Fern Dodson. She was the oldest of six siblings and was raised in Pyote, Texas, where she graduated high school and later attended Brazosport College.  Pat worked as a loan officer at Complex Community FCU for 25 years, where she made many long-lasting friendships with her co-workers and customers, before retiring in 2009.

Pat loved all past times that included her family, whether it was trips to the lake, cookouts, or watching football.  Anyone that knew Pat, knew she loved her “Cowboys”.  She was absolutely the best mother and grandmother that anyone could ever ask for.

Those left to cherish her memories are her daughters, Susan Slaton and husband Byron, Andrea Martin and husband Tommy; grandchildren, Ryan Slaton, Jordan Slaton, Mallori Hutson and husband Luke, Taylor Martin and wife Victoria; great grandchildren, Halen and Hendrix; brothers, Bobby Dodson and wife Teresa, Doug Dodson and wife Vicki; sister, Sheila Maxey and husband Doug; niece, Stephanie Bolin Dawkins; nephews, Stephen Bolin and Shawn Dodson; sister-in law, Edith Strawn;  and we cannot forget her dog “Turbo” who she referred to as her other child.

She is preceded in death by her loving husband, Gene McWhorter; parents, Randolph and Fern Dodson; brothers, Stephen Dodson and Russell Dodson.

A memorial service will be held at Vine Baptist Church on Monday, January 23, 2023, at 10:00 AM. Pastor Johnny Touchstone will be officiating.
