Remembering a dear friend:

Patricia (Pat) Griffin Hathcoat was born on May 15, 1953, to R. T. Griffin and Geneva Ann (Byram) Griffin in Mt. Pleasant, Texas. As the oilfields offered job opportunities, the family relocated to Winnsboro, Texas. Pat was a graduate of Winnsboro High School. After graduating, she married Ron Hathcoat on May 29, 1971, and they soon moved to Ft. Worth. Pat attended Tarrant County College and later Texas Women’s University. She was an accredited member of the Professional Administrator Credentialing Board of Texas during her preschool directorship years at Stonebridge Learning Center, McKinney; Primrose at Chase Oaks, Plano; and the two La Petite Academies in Plano and Allen. Pat for the past 15 years was an active member of the East Fork Baptist Church where she served as teacher, pianist and choir member as long as her health permitted. And of course, she was a pastor’s wife.
Her career in childhood education was shortened due to a liver disease. In 2002, after being on the national transplant list for 3 years, she received a liver transplant. At that time the doctors at Baylor University Medical Center projected  that her life was extended by approximate ten year, but they were wrong. The Lord extended her life for 18 years! And during those years Pat became interested in porcelain art, and it was not long before she was teaching porcelain art to her young students in Celina. She served as an officer in the North Texas Porcelain Art Club of McKinney as well as in the China Painting Teachers of Texas.
Pat is survived by her husband of 50 years, Rev. Ron Hathcoat of Celina, Texas; three sons: Ronnie Hathcoat, Nashville, Tennessee; Michael Hathcoat & Jenifer Ellis of Carrollton Texas; Stephen Hathcoat and Karen Hathcoat, Allen, Texas; and, one brother, Dwayne Griffin and wife Becky Griffin of Alto Texas.  And, of course, let’s not forget the grandchildren! There is Justin Hathcoat, Austin Texas; Hallie Hathcoat, Tom Bean Texas; Lucas Hathcoat, Tom Bean, Texas; Brittney Hathcoat, Sachse Texas; Kayla Hathcoat, Texarkana Texas; Kallan Hathcoat, McGregor Texas; Chelsea Hathcoat, Pilot Point, Texas; Kelly Schwab, Katherine Schwab, Nathan Schwab and Julie Schwab of Allen Texas. Numerous other family members and friends.
Pat was preceded in death by her parents R.T. Griffin and Geneva Griffin Phelps and sister Brenda Strawbridge.
The family will be receiving friends for visitation and viewing on Friday, October 8, 2021 from 9:30 am to 11:00 am at East Fork Baptist Church, 2430 FM546, McKinney, TX 75069.  The Celebration of Life service will begin at 11:00 am with Rev. Jack May officiating.  A procession will follow services to Wilson Chapel Cemetery, 100 Chapel Lane @ Bridgefarmer Road, McKinney, TX 75069 where Pat will be laid to rest.
