Patsy Lamb Poss

(Formerly of Glascock County) -Patsy Lamb Poss, age 88, met her Lord on Saturday, July 18, 2020.  She was born to Russell and Thelma Lamb on June 22, 1932 in Glascock County, GA.  Although she lived in DeFuniak Springs off and on for over 40 years, she always considered GA home.  She was born in Edgehill, GA and fondly spoke of life on the farm with her family.  She was always thankful for the Christian home that was provided by her parents for her and six siblings.

When you spent time with Patsy, you most definitely would be laughing before long.   She had the biggest laugh and it was evident that she enjoyed those that she considered friends and family.  She spent a lot of time with her grandmother, Josephine Cooper as a child and she would always say she was the one responsible to teaching her to be a great cook.  Patsy’s ten-layer chocolate cakes were always one of the favorite of Sunday luncheons at church.  For fun, she and her husband John shared the love of mountains with her sister, Katherine and husband J I, and every year visited the Smokey Mountains to see the changing of the leaves.  One of the other things she enjoyed was the Christmas season, she decorated her entire yard every year and she enjoyed watching people slow down to see the beautiful decorations.  Patsy loved her family with all her heart. They were the light of her life and she would have done anything for them – just ask the grandchildren.  She was the best role model of what a wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend should be.  She believed in being in church on Sunday and having an active role in other activities related to the church.  If the doors were open, you most likely would find Patsy and John. 

In addition to collecting Coca-Cola memorabilia, tea pots, and bells, she enjoyed her bowling league in Valparaiso, FL in the early 70’s and being an active member and officer of the Thomson Lioness Club.  Patsy was named Lioness of the Year for the Thomson, GA chapter.

In addition to her parents, Patsy is preceded in death by her husband, John Edward Poss, two daughters, Clara Milburn and Joy Poss; one sister Mattie Mae Chalker, and three brothers, Robert Lamb, Louis Lamb, and Gene Lamb.   She is survived by daughters Johnnie Kay Ealum (BJ), Clyde Standland (Larry) all of DeFuniak Springs, FL and Diane McDonald of Anchorage, AK; one son, Louis Poss (Joy) of Lakeview, Arkansas; one sister, Katherine English (Joel), and one brother, Joe Lamb (Renee); thirteen grandchildren, twenty great-grandchildren, ten great-great grandchildren, and host of nieces and nephews.

The family would also like to thank the caregivers that assisted with Patsy’s care when she needed them most.  They will be forever grateful for the love and support.

A time of visitation was held at 3:00 PM with funeral service at 4:00 PM on Friday, July 24, 2020 at Clary-Glenn Funeral Home Chapel , 290 Park Ave, DeFuniak Springs, FL. Burial followed in the Gum Creek Cemetery in Glendale Community.

Pallbearers were grandsons, Tyler Ealum, Ryan Ealum, Aaron Ealum, Stan Standland, Brett Standland, and Seth Standland.
