Patricia Louise Gainey Sasser, a resident of Cottage Hill, won the victory on May 27, 2015, at Joyce Goldenberg Hospice. She was 68 years old.

Mrs. Sasser was born August 12, 1946, in Pensacola to B.T. and Juanita Gainey. She was a graduate of Pensacola High School where she was known as a gifted pianist. She was married to Rev. James W.

She was a faithful and supportive pastor’s wife. She also served many years in children’s ministry but her greatest joy was serving her own children, grandchildren and her husband.
