Obituary of Patsy Wann Hinson

Patsy Wann Hinson, 90, of Siler City passed away peacefully in her sleep on Friday, September 24, 2021 at SECU Jim & Betsy Brian Hospice Home of UNC Healthcare, Pittsboro. She will be deeply missed, but her memory will be cherished and live on in her two sons, her four grandchildren, and her nine great-grandchildren (who she spoiled every chance she had.) Patsy (lovingly nicknamed "PJ" by her beloved late husband, Harold T. Hinson, Sr.) was born in Danville, VA on March 23, 1931, the daughter of David and Martha Wann. Throughout her life, she remained incredibly close to her family, including her eight brothers and sisters. She was preceded in death by brothers Cline, David and Hersel Wann, and sisters, Betty "Boots" Chandler and Florence Hackler. She is survived by her sisters Jean Stamper, Diane Jones, and Sheron Lipford of Danville, VA, who often visited and were a light in Patsy's life. Patsy was a member of West End United Methodist Church, spent her working years as a Supervisor at A.J. Schneierson & Company, and spent every moment she could with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. If you ask anyone in her family, they will tell you that Patsy was the best cook in Siler City. For most of her adult life, she cooked a full Southern lunch, from fried chicken to brown sugar pie, every Sunday afternoon. Anyone was invited to sit at her table, and no one ever left hungry. For as long as she was able, she also loved to shop and to take yearly trips to the beach with her sisters. Patsy is survived by her sons, Charles L. Hinson of Roanoke, VA and Harold T. Hinson, Jr. of Siler City; grandchildren, Christie H. Norris and husband David, Benjamin M. Hinson and wife Regan, Matthew T. Hinson and wife Helen, Jonathan A. Hinson and wife Elizabeth; and great grandchildren, Makyle (13), Boden (8), Elijah (6), Amelia (4), Henry (3), Beau (2), James (1), and Alivia (8 months). A small celebration of her life will be held at a later date. Memorials may be made to Chatham County Council on Aging, P O Box 715, Pittsboro, NC 27312 (Meals on Wheels).
