Patsy was born and raised on the Miller homestead, in Dalton, Arkansas. She attended school in a one-room schoolhouse, at Bakerden. Patsy then attended Dalton High School and finished at Ravenden Springs High School. She was introduced to her husband, Bunkie, by Renae Vandergriff, and they married on March 30, 1955. Patsy always said she never knew if she should kiss or slap Renae for their meeting. Patsy also said that her marriage with Bunkie was not perfect, but it was always exciting.
Patsy and Bunkie traveled across the western United States following construction work but always managed to come back home to Dalton.
Patsy had an uncanny ability to get into embarrassing situations but always came out laughing.
Patsy worked at Pro Group (Golf Bag) for almost twenty years but was mostly a stay-at-home mom. She was a member of the Dalton Women’s Club until she moved to Pocahontas after the death of her husband.
