Patricia Ann Wellmon
Patricia Ann Alexander Wellmon, 82, passed away August 4, 2017.
A native of Shelby, North Carolina, daughter of the late Rev. Hoyle B. and Zelma D. Alexander, she moved to Greer, South Carolina in 1970, enjoyed a long time career in real estate with C. Dan Joyner as Broker-In-Charge, and was a member of Fairview Baptist Church. Many would have been happy to enjoy their retirement years, but Pat was one who enjoyed meeting and helping others. She began a new career at Greer State Bank as one of their two Customer Service Attendants and worked until her health prevented her to continue.
Pat was known in her community as one who loved her church, family and friends. Most of all she always was our prayer warrior. Her motto was “take it to the Lord” and she lived her motto.
Surviving are one daughter, Lisa Garris (Kim) of Greer; two sons, Chris Wellmon (Robin) of Greer and Tim Wellmon (Debbie) of Taylors; one brother, Hoyle Alexander, Jr. (Mary) of Elon, North Carolina; three sisters, Gay Black (William) of Woodruff, Judy Montgomery of Greer and Terri O’Tuel of Bennettsville; six grandchildren, Jeremy Wellmon, Christy Kinard, Landon Garris, Grayson Garris, Nicole Knight and Courtney Davis; seven great-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews.

Visitation was held 1:30 until 2:45 p.m. Monday at the church prior to the service.
