Patricia W. “Patty” Hewlett, 81, of Moberly, MO., died Tuesday, April 18, 2023.
Patty was born March 22, 1942, in Webb City, MO., the daughter of Hal and Dorothy (Cady) Wise. She and her sister, Ann, shared their parents’ passion for travel and learning and participating in their local community.
She attended the University of Missouri and the University of Southern Mississippi and in 1962 married Joseph Hewlett. They shared a daughter, Marcia Swain and her husband Ed and two grandchildren, Alec Swain and Mackenzie Swain.
Patty taught in the Moberly Public School system for 31 years, first at Central School and then for most of her time at Moberly Junior High teaching 8th grade Social Studies. Her true aim was for all of her students to succeed in understanding our country’s history and our form of government so they could participate as good community citizens.
She loved walking for exercise and logged many miles on the walking trails around town and at the MACC Activity Center. She especially enjoyed her Yoga group at the YMCA and hated to miss any of their scheduled times. She was active in PEO and Sorosis and at Coates Street Presbyterian Church
Memorial contributions can be made to Coates Street Presbyterian Church, Moberly, MO.
Words of support may be shared with the family, at a visitation to be held Tuesday, April 25, 2023, 4-6 pm at the Coates Street Presbyterian Church. Memorial services honoring Patty’s life will follow at 6 pm. A private Committal prayer and burial will take place at the Oakland Cemetery at a later date.
