Obituary

Patricia Brophy Wall, September 30, 1935-March 18, 2022.

Pat, valiant warrior and loving mother was born in Flandreau, South Dakota to the Rosebud tribe on the Sioux Native American reservation on September 30, 1935 to Myrtle Marie Parsell born In Angola, Indiana and Byron Joseph Brophy born in Spring Hill, Nova Scotia.

Having lived in many states as a child, from cities across America from Denver to Olympia to Washington DC to Big Rapids, she grew to love and respect her country as a young lady.

Her heart was set on Blue and Gold from the beginning; she knew the only place for her was the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. During college, Pat became known as “This is Pat” in the Michigan Daily as she modeled for a local clothes boutique with ads twice a week. She received an AB in English Literature and continued with graduate work at her favorite school. (Thesis short of MSW.) and an MA Ed in mental health counseling. Since then she has been a proud and unashamed fan of her alma mater.

Preceded in death by her youngest son Thomas Andrew Wall and Barry Lyman Wall. Survived by her oldest son, Patterson Byron Wall, Brigitte Wall and children Johnathan, wife Eileen, children Jordyn, Ian, Cooper, Michelle, husband Ricardo, children Ivy, Ryker, Aries, and Nicholas. Daughter Ann Wall Crawford, husband John, sons Luke, wife Elizabeth, Josh, John, and Stevie, Daughter Elizabeth Wall Gondek, husband Roger, children Charlotte, husband Kevin and Dylan, Karen Wall Walker, husband Curt and children Andrew, Ashley, and Ally.

Pat or “Nana” was a loving grandmother sharing her love of reading by working at her church library and filling her grandchildren’s shelves with wonderful books. Smart, quick witted and politically astute, Nana amazed her grandchildren with her number of twitter followers. Pat was definitely the person to ask if you needed to know what was happening in the world.

Patricia courageously fought and was victorious over Triple Negative, a very aggressive form of breast cancer. Her perseverance continued as she fought many life threatening issues.

Pat became known in the toy tea set and flow blue world as luvblu for her beautiful and extensively researched collection sold on EBay. She made friends from around the globe buying and selling these rare pieces.

Patricia had a great appreciation for art, music , theater, opera, literature,  tennis and bridge.  She loved playing classical music on the piano. One of her greatest joys was driving her green Mini Cooper.

There was no place on earth she would rather be than on her back porch surrounded by her beautiful plants, flowers and her favorite key lime tree overlooking the Gulf with its breathtaking Florida sunsets. Pat then moved to Lake Seminole Square where she made wonderful new friends and rekindled friendships from old.

Patricia was full of strength and beauty found in her deep intimate relationship with the Heavenly Father. Studying God’s Word, His theology brought her great joy and fulfillment until she reached the place she has yearned for...to be face to face with her Savior Jesus in Heaven. We thank God for our time with this precious saint, our mother, our friend. We thank God and give Him glory for this wonderful life. To God be the Glory!
