Our deepest sympathies go to Dr. Janis Fowler, on the recent passing of her mother, Patricia Christensen.

Patricia Ann McCarty Christensen was born on July 23, 1933 and passed away on Sunday, September 6, 2015 after a valiant battle with cancer.

Pat will be best remembered for her love of family, her generosity, her devout faith, and many close friends. She never hesitated to help others in need. Pat loved to celebrate the holidays with family – these usually included home cooked meals and many rounds of card or board games with her grandchildren. Other hobbies of Pat’s included antiquing, sewing, decorating, shopping, and working Sudoku and crossword puzzles. But most importantly, she was the glue that brought and kept the family together.

Pat was preceded in death by her loving husband Richard (Dick) Christensen, parents Esther and Jerry McCarty, brothers Gerald McCarty and Tom Ellsberry and wives, in-laws Elroy and Geneal Christensen and brother-in law Paul Christensen. Pat is survived by her children, Jerry Christensen (Carol), Janis Christensen Fowler (Ned), and David Christensen (Mary); grandchildren Robert, Hannah, Harrison, Libby, and Emalee; sisters Donna Adams and Margie McDermott; in-laws Bruce and Pat Christensen, and Delores Christensen, as well as many cousins.

The family will receive friends from 6:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. on Thursday, September 10, 2015 at Kingwood Funeral Home in Kingwood, Texas.
Memorial Services will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Friday, September 11, 2015 at Holy Comforter Church in Kingwood, Texas.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Pat’s name to Holy Comforter Lutheran Church or to the Houston Museum of Fine Arts.
