Obituary for Patricia Whitman

Patricia  Whitman
Patricia (Goody) Brown Whitman died April 26, 2018 in Watkinsville, GA.

Goody Whitman was born in Erwin, North Carolina on July 7, 1933 to the late Fred Ward Brown and Georgia Hall Brown. She was also preceded in death by her husband, Johnnie Lloyd Whitman, Jr. and her brothers, Fredrick Cross Brown and Bobby Hall Brown. She is survived by her daughter and her husband, Kim and Bob Bohler of Watkinsville, Georgia; grandchildren Robert Lloyd Bohler and Johnathan (John) Ward Bohler. She is also survived by her sister, Peggy Brown Fowler, and many loving nieces and nephews.

Goody grew up in Erwin and graduated from Erwin High School in 1951. She married Lloyd “Peanut” Whitman, October 19, 1952. Their only child, Kim was born in July of 1959. They moved frequently with his work until settling at White Lake in the early 1960’s. Many wonderful friends were made there. In 1968 they built a house and moved to Wilmington in the Pine Valley subdivision. With their neighbors they socialized, danced, steamed oysters, and had pig pickin’s. Peanut died suddenly in 1984 and Goody moved back to her hometown of Erwin. Family was always important to her and she was blessed to have two grandsons whom she adored. They were the love of her life in her later years. In 2014, as her health declined she moved to Georgia to live with her daughter and her family. They were blessed to have the time together. Kim and Bob were by her side as she was peacefully gathered into the arms of her Savior. Her faith, kindness, and goodness shone especially bright during her last years. A service will be held at First Baptist Church, Erwin, North Carolina on Saturday, May 12, at 2:00 p.m. Visitation will be held at 1:00 p.m. at the church. In lieu of flowers, the family requests any memorials be sent to First Baptist Church, 300 South 12th Street, Erwin, North Carolina, 28339, or Alps Road Presbyterian Church, 380 Alps Road, Athens, Georgia, 30677.
