Mrs. Patricia Shoop Lafoon
12/01/1934 - 05/08/2022
Patricia Shoop Lafoon, age 87, of South Hill, Virginia went to be with her Lord and Savior Sunday, May 8, 2022 after a brief illness. Pat was born in Bucyrus, Ohio, the youngest of four children to Hamilton and Helen Shoop. She attended Longwood University with sights on becoming a Home Economics teacher, but decided instead to focus her talents on raising a family and building a home for them to return to every chance they got. Blessed with a beautiful singing voice, she shared that gift with her family, inspiring a love of music, and with the church she was devoted to. Never without her lipstick, always dressed and pressed, she was a prayer warrior with a generous spirit. Her laughter filled the room, and will be sorely missed. She was preceded in death by her loving husband of sixty-five years, Hubbard “Kip” Lafoon, her parents, three brothers: Hamilton, George, and Donald, and a beloved grandson, Nolan Rowley.
Left to cherish her memory are two daughters, Elaine L. Rowley (Earl) of South Hill, VA, Donna L. Cliborne (Bruce) of La Crosse, VA, two sons, Robert E. Lafoon (Pat) of Virginia Beach, VA and Mark C. Lafoon of Raleigh, NC; nine grandchildren: Dwayne Kiser (Kym), Brandon Lafoon (Tina), Kristi Lafoon, Wyatt Lafoon, Logan Rowley, Vince Cliborne (Rebecca), Brett Cliborne, Madison Cliborne, and Dee Dee Cliborne; eight great-grandchildren: Bri Keeling (Anthony), Amber Rogers (Ryan), John Thomas, Nola, Adleigh, Owen, Cora, and Bruce III; and three great-great-grandchildren: Hunter, Maverick, and Maddie.
