Patricia Vaughan Maynard / April 13, 2021

Patricia Vaughan Maynard, 72, died Tuesday, April 6, 2021 at the Hock Family Pavilion hospice facility located in Durham, N.C. Even though visitors were limited at the facility, Pat was surrounded by her family and a lot of love in her final days.

Pat, or “Patsy” to many, was a wonderful wife, mother, sister, friend, and so much more. She was the type of person that would do anything for anyone. If a friend or family member needed her, she was there in an instant, without question, and ready to help with a warm hug. You were always in for a bit of fun when you hung with Pat, and her laugh had the inexplicable ability to light up a room. To say she will be missed by many doesn’t begin to explain it.

Pat was born in Oxford, N.C., to Mollie Mae Williams Vaughan and Greeley Madison Vaughan on November 26, 1948. She was granddaughter of the late Elmus and Jewel Williams of Oxford, N.C., and William and Rebecca Vaughan of Nelson. Pat spent her early childhood in Clarksville, before moving to Richmond, in 1961. She graduated from Hermitage High School in 1967 and worked at Travelers Insurance Company until 1978. She married Robert “Bob” William Maynard in 1977 and gave birth to their daughter, Kelly Maynard McCuistion, in 1983. She and Bob moved to North Carolina in 2004 where they enjoyed lakefront living on Kerr Lake with their beloved Boston terrier, Jake. She was recently overjoyed to become a grandma to Harlow Lynne McCuistion in March 2020 but unfortunately was diagnosed with lung cancer six months later. She put up a tough fight, but in the end, sadly the cancer was too far progressed.

Pat is survived by her husband Bob, daughter Kelly and son-in-law Robb McCuistion, granddaughter Harlow, brothers Bill Vaughan and Mike Hanchey and her aunt, Linda Williams Currin, who was more like a sister than an aunt.

Due to COVID, her memorial service is being postponed until early summer when (hopefully) the situation is more under control.

Her Facebook page will be kept updated with details:

Pat was a big animal lover so in lieu of flowers, the family requests that small donations be made to the Clarksville SPCA:
