Patricia Dalene “Pat” Levingston Prosser

Patricia Dalene “Pat” Levingston Prosser passed away Thursday evening, Sept. 1, 2016 in Liberty Nursing Center of Mansfield surrounded by her family. She was 80.

Pat was born Feb. 9, 1936 to parents Lawrence Dale & Florence Clara (Baker) Lewis in Mansfield. She attended Bellville High School and even played the clarinet in the marching band.

Pat started at the bottom and worked her way up starting her working career at the V&M Restaurant. She worked many other jobs before most recently working as a cook for the Atwood Manor Nursing Home in Galion. She was a gifted cook and to list all of her signature recipes would take up an entire paper.

In her younger years she was a Girl Scout leader and enjoyed bowling. In her spare time, she took pleasure in gardening, selling Avon, crocheting, knitting and sewing. Pat was a part of the TOPS Club, the Galion Owls Club and the Army Navy Club. But above all, Pat will be remembered for her giving spirit and her willing-to-help attitude.

She is survived by children Daniel Levingston of Mansfield, Dale (Teresa) Levingston of Mansfield, David (Dawn) Levingston of Virginia, Dyanna (Terrance) Wolfgang of Mansfield and Dean (Paula) Levingston of Ashland; 17 grandchildren; 39 great-grandchildren; 9 great-great-grandchildren; siblings Marjorie Terry, Lawrence (Lorraine) Lewis and Robert (Dolly) Lewis as well as numerous nieces, nephews and extended family.

She was preceded in death by her parents, her children’s father Frederick Levingston and her favorite Aunt Dorothy Heslep.

The family will receive friends 4 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 6, 2016 in the Bellville Snyder Funeral Home where a funeral service celebrating her life will be held 11 a.m. Wednesday. Pastor Micah Pelkey will officiate and burial will follow in Zion Four Corners Cemetery near Butler.

Contributions in her memory to OhioHealth Hospice may be made at the funeral home.
