Patrick

Olive and her husband, Jesse “Pat” Patrick (de-ceased) lived in Norfolk, VA, where they raised three children. Upon Pat’s retire-ment, they moved back to Rodanthe.  Olive is survived by two daughters, Judith Blue (Mahlon, deceased) of Rodanthe and Amy Midgett (Jamie) of Avon; a son, Alan B. Patrick of Rodanthe; six grandchildren, Colleen Blue  (Lance), Mahlon Jesse Blue (Ashley), Meagan Blue (Tyler), Olivia Gray (Karl), Tonya Gray (Gabe) and Jadon Midgett; three great-grandchildren, Karina, Michael, and Mahlon C.; two sisters, Zenovah Hooper and Lovie Midgett; two sisters-in-law, Sadie Haislip and Jazania O’Neal; and many nieces and nephews.

Olive was a lifetime member of Fair Haven United Methodist Church in Rodan-the. She spent her life in service to her Lord by making herself available in any capacity she could to serve Him. She served as Church Treasurer, Sunday School teacher, and she was an active member of the United Methodist Women. She also enjoyed being part of the Outer Banks Rebekah Lodge for over 40 years.

She loved being with her family, taking trips with her sisters, and dancing at Old Christmas.

Olive was a classy lady, who always strived to see the beauty in life.  A true beauty herself, her joyful attitude was contagious, and her compassion towards others was notorious. She will be sorely missed.

A funeral will be held at 10:00 am on Saturday, March 24, 2018, at Fair Haven United Methodist Church with Rev. Jim Bliss officiating. A graveside committal will follow at Woodlawn Memorial Gar-dens, Norfolk, VA beginn-ing at 3:00 pm. The family will receive friends and relatives Friday evening from 6:00 until 8:00 pm at the church. Preceding and following the viewing, the family will also receive visitors at the home of Lovie Midgett (at the end of Sea Sound Road).

In lieu of flowers, memor-ial donations may be made to Fair Haven United Methodist Church, PO Box 378, Rodanthe, NC 27968 or Alzheimer’s Association, PO Box 96011, Washington, DC 20090.
