March 3, 1944 — May 11, 2021


Patsy Ann Bennett, 77, of Paducah, passed away on Tuesday, May 11, 2021 at Baptist Health Paducah.

Patsy was born on March 3, 1944, in Paducah, Kentucky. She was employed part-time for many years at Western Baptist Hospital in the business office; however, her main career was as a hard-working farm wife alongside her husband of 57 years, Bill Bennett. Patsy’s greatest joy in life was spending time with her family and helping her grandkids and great grandkids. She also loved her special beach trips with her husband and sister-in-law.  Patsy was humorous, witty, caring, giving, selfless, and was always welcoming with her beautiful smile.

Patsy leaves behind her husband, Bill Bennett; two children, Russ Bennett and significant other, Patty Clark, and Alison (Justin) Riley; one stepdaughter, Debbie (Robbie) Harvey; seven grandchildren, Brandon (Johnna) Bennett, Matthew (Amanda) Bennett, Carson (Joy) Riley, Adison Riley, Molly Riley, Rachel Moore, and Alicia Moore; and seven great-grandchildren.

In addition to her immediate family, she maintained special relationships and is remembered with love by her sister-in-law, Ann; her special cousins, Cheryl, Donna, Jackie, and Pam; Patty’s son, Zachary (Samantha), and their daughter, Cheyenne Grimes.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Eugene Lester Little and Evelyn Little, and her grandson, Nathan Moore.
