Patricia Jo (Stegall) Richards, age 81 passed away peacefully on Sunday, June 30, 2019.
She was born May 28, 1938 in Canton, the daughter of the late Jesse and Audrey (Lowe) Stegall.

Pat was a 1956 graduate of Lehman high school and a life-long resident of Canton. She spent her adult life as a homemaker and held a variety of food service and caregiver roles. She will be remembered for her fun-loving nature and generosity. Pat thoroughly enjoyed laughing and passing along corny jokes. Although her resources were meager, she was eager to entertain, prepare food and share what little she had. The gatherings would often include Pat playing hymns, show tunes or the latest pop songs on her organ, all by ear. Caregivers commented that she always had a smile and was a pleasant patient. Residents of her apartment complex described her as everyone’s cheerful best friend.

Survivors include her three children: Jim (Sherrie) Richards, Bobbie (Bill) Uher and Terry (Anita) Richards, all of Canton, Ohio. She is also survived by her grandchildren, Matthew Richards, Jesse Richards, Jason (Jena) Richards, Jeremy (Hope) Richards and eight great grandchildren. She will be greatly missed by her extended grandchildren Timothy Uher and Clayton Uher and her “nieces”
Cheryl (John) Dick and April (Ron) Harsha.

In addition to her parents, Pat was preceded in death by her “sister” Judith (Rickenbrode) Jute.

A celebration of life open house will be held on Saturday. August 17, 2019 from 2:00-4:00 p.m. at Greenwood Christian Church, 4425 Frazier Ave., N.W., Canton, Ohio.

    My mother in law who I called “mom” was so easy to talk to. She had a great sense of humor and was fond of puzzles. She had a knack of doing the hardest puzzle and then framing them. She gave us a beautiful puzzle of a patriotic scene called “chamberlain charge. I envied her quality of patience and diligence of completing these 500 piece puzzles . Bobbie and her son Jim inherited her love for baking
