Patricia Louise Meyers Nixon | Herald-Standard obituaries
Patricia Louise Meyers Nixon, “Pat”, 85, passed away peacefully on Monday, December 13, 2021 in Tampa, Florida, surrounded by her immediate family and her beloved dog, Max.
Born in Uniontown on August 31, 1936, to the late Paul Woodrow Meyers and Helen Shields Meyers Tumulty.
She learned early on the importance of extended family and spent part of her youth with her grandmother, Ella Addis Shields, and her uncle Barnie Shields.
She was happily married, for over 50 years, to Larry Nixon, who predeceased her in death. They had a daughter, Barbara Ann.
Pat became a big part of the Nixon family, who showed her the importance of good family times and how to cook Polish dishes (she made excellent Pierogies).
In her early years, she worked at Thorofare Grocery Store, where she was the deli manager. She was an active member of the Amvets and Hutchinson Sportsman Club, where she enjoyed bowling, playing bingo, and making many lifelong friends.
Later in life, she enjoyed many trips to Florida, where she spent time at “Bubba” with her grandchildren, Jessica and Emily. She had a special bond with her nephew, Tom Belle, and enjoyed his daily visits to Uniontown and his frequent calls while in Florida.
She has spent the past seven years living part-time and then full-time in Tampa, Florida with her daughter Barb and her family.
She is survived by her daughter and son-in-law, Barbara and Jim Powell; and her grandchildren, Jessica and Emily Powell, all of Tampa, Florida; by her sister-in-law, Maryann Grace, of North Olmsted, Ohio; by his brother, Paul “Butch” Meyers; by his half-siblings, William “Bill” Tumulty, Jeanie Tumulty Dominek and Rich Tumulty; by his nephew and niece, Tom Belle and Anna Belle Cupplo; and much more.
She was predeceased by her husband, Larry Nixon; by her stepmother, Ann Muha Nixon (the original “Bubba”); Bill Nixon; Connie Nixon Belle; Ronnie Nixon; siblings, Nancy Meyers, Mary Meyers and Dolly Meyers; and by many other close friends with whom she now celebrates happily in Heaven.
Our hearts are heavy, but know that one day we will be together for eternity.
The family will have a Celebration of Life in Uniontown in the spring of 2022. Interment will follow at St Joseph’s Cemetery in Hopwood.
