Patricia Thomas

Cedar Rapids

Patricia Anne Thomas of Cedar Rapids was born April 16, 1958, and left us on Jan.
17, 2018, after suffering a brief affliction.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Robert Lee and Mae Ellen Craig. She is survived by her two sons, Jeremy Lee and wife Blakeney Jones of Littleton, Colo., and Elias Shelby and wife Michaela Jones of Omaha, Neb. Pat deeply loved her six grandchildren, Blake and Samantha of Atkins, Iowa, and Evelyn, Ottaviano, Marcetta and Oliver of Omaha, Neb. She loved and was loved by two sisters; Kristina Morris of Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, and Rebecca and husband Garold Jandik of Cedar Rapids, Iowa; and one brother, Ivan and wife Peggy Craig of Red Oak, Iowa. Patricia also is survived by three half-brothers, Lee Craig of Rock City, N.C., David Craig of Louisiana and Paul Renner of Dover, Ohio; and one half-sister, Celeste of Homestead, Fla.
Patricia was involved in the lives of her many nieces and nephews, too many to all be listed in this celebration of her life. She had struggles in life, as do we all, but she also was a person that loved well and would do anything for those she could assist. She is loved deeply and will be missed immeasureably.
