MILLS, Patricia Ann (1942 - 2019)
Mrs. Patricia Ann McKinney Mills was born to Leeman and Thelma McKinney on August 10, 1942, and went home to be with her Savior, Jesus, on September 9, 2019.
On May 7, 1961, she united in marriage to Henry M. Mills at the home of Charlie and Aileen Smith in Artemus.
Together they shared two children, six grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.
Pat was known by many as the bookmobile librarian. She served the Knox County community in that position for 29 years.
In her spare time, she loved to sew, read, make crafts and shop.
Prior to her becoming ill, she was attending the Swan Pond Baptist Church.
She leaves behind a brother, Dennis McKinney, countless friends and family who loved her more than bears love honey and will miss her and mourn her passing until they are reunited with her in heaven.
A celebration of her life will take place on September 12, 2019 at 2 p.m. at Knox Funeral Home. Burial will follow in the Barbourville Cemetery.
Casket bearers will be her grandsons, Justin Mills, Jeremy Mills, Andrew Kinder, Seth Kinder, Sie Kinder and Ian Kinder.
