Ms. Pat better known as “Nana” was born October 12, 1943 in Dekalb, MS to late Henry Grady Sr. & Gladys Lucille Young Eldridge.
Pat graduated from Dekalb High School in 1961 and went on to East Ms Jr College. She Married Cary LeCharles Hill Sr and had two beautiful children. She worked and retired from Home Interior and Gifts in 1988. She later married John Robert Overton and gained two more beautiful daughters. They opened Talk Of The Town Antiques and both enjoyed a second career of buying and selling antiques. Mother truly loved life to the fullest with her family and friends, socializing, drinking, smoking and talking trash. She was a southern belle who loved her home and pretty things. Her door and ears were always open for anyone who needed advice, a sermon or a good ole dose of the GOSPEL. Nana read her bible daily, watched her favorite preachers religiously and could quote the bible scripture and verse. Her Love was unconditional and positive attitude was contagious. We all will remember the talks on the back porch and trips to the beach. You will be in our heart and soul until we meet again.
She is preceded in passing by her loving parents, Mr. & Mrs. Eldridge, two sisters, Georgia Lou “Polly” Kirkland, Catherine “Kitty” Brock, two brothers, Grady “Buddy” Eldridge Jr. and Kenneth “Bo” Eldridge.
