Pat was born In Plainview, TX to Elmo “Tex” & Eileen Anglin. She was the oldest of five children & started her younger years as a backup singer for Lefty Frizzell. Pat was a member of the Order of the Eastern Star as were both of her parents & late husband. Pat loved to sing & dance & wasn’t afraid to try new moves like Twerking or the Stanky Leg with her family.
After settling down, she had her first two children; Scot & Raylene Willey. She later married the love of her life Neil Craft on May 10th, 1976 in Elko NV. Soon after, Brandi & Sheri were born & their family was complete. Together they owned the Midway Lounge & Cafe & Shanty Shack in WVC, UT.
When she wasn't playing on her pool league, bowling league, or watching the Dallas Cowboys & Broncos play, you could find her playing games with her family & cheering on her all‐time favorite team the Utah Jazz. Pat & her family moved to Moab Utah in 1989 where they purchased & ran the Edge of the Desert Trailer Park. Once the nest was empty, she went to work for the local City Market until she retired.
Pat had a love for her family & friends that was truly amazing. Her sweet, caring nature made those around her feel very special. Although she was a spitfire to say the least, she knew exactly what she wanted out of life! Pat was blessed with six grandchildren & three great grandchildren. She was a wonderful Mother, Mamma, Sister, Aunt, & friend & will be deeply missed. She was able to leave this earth in her home while holding both of her daughter’s hands.

Tributes:I loved Pat (Patea). She was always there for me, when I was single. She was a caring and loving person. She could always make me smile. I'm sure heaven is doing some kind of jig, now that she's there. May she RIP. Her memory will be long lasting to everyone who knew her.
