Patricia Tyler Downs

March 17, 1941 - March 1, 2019

We are sad to announce our beloved Wife, Mother, and Grandmother, Patricia Tyler Downs, passed away March 1, 2019 at the age of 77. She was the loving wife of Edward for 50 years; devoted mother of Kathleen (Alan) Graham, Leslie (Shawn) Rhodes, and Nicole (William) Morris; cherished grandmother of Morgan Graham and Brendan Rhodes; dear sister of Ellen (Robert Balden) Hendrickson, Terry Tyler, and the late John Tyler.

Born March 17, 1941 in Pontiac, raised in Milford, and spent her life in West Bloomfield, MI, Pattie has been a wonderful asset to the community. She was an extraordinary school teacher, spending 20 years at Our Lady of Refuge Catholic School. Pattie’s students would often write her letters and stop her to talk with her about their lives. She left a family that will continue to make her proud. Pattie will be missed immensely.

A celebration of Pattie’s life will be held Sunday, March 10th, beginning at 12:30 p.m. with a Welcome followed by a Memorial Service at 1 p.m. with Father Thomas Meagher at Bay Pointe Golf Club – Club Room, 4001 Haggerty Rd., West Bloomfield. In lieu of flowers, Memorial Contributions are appreciated to the Michigan Ovarian Cancer Alliance in her name
