Obituary for Patsy E. Medina

August 10, 1940 - September 10, 2018
Elkton, Maryland | Age 78


Patsy E. Medina, age 78 of Elkton, MD passed away surrounded by her loving family on September 10, 2018. She was born on August 10, 1940 in Cedar Bluff, VA to the late Ben Dover Stinson and Bertha Leona (Jackson) Stinson.

Patsy grew up during a time when resources were limited and because of this, she quickly learned how to be resourceful and make the best out of all situations. When life threw her challenges, her strong will and hard work kept her and her family grounded. Patsy worked as a shop steward and quickly became a perfectionist. She was very particular since she had to inspect all of the garments before they left the factory. She was a very talented seamstress and she made all of her children's clothing all the way through high school. She also made curtains, blankets and quilts.

Patsy is survived by her daughters: Diana (Bonilla) Flores and her husband, Hector of Long Island, NY, Debbie (Bonilla) Rodriguez and her fiancé, David Riguelme of Elkton, MD, Cynthia (Bonilla) Harris and her husband, Eddie of Long Island, NY, and Dinorah Bonilla of Long Island, NY; honorary daughter, Josephine Tierney and her husband, Thomas; stepchildren: David Martinez and his wife, Betsy, Reynaldo Medina and his wife, Angela, and Marilyn Medina; 20 grandchildren; 11 great grandchildren; and sister, Shirley Slate.

She is preceded in death by her first husband, Arcadio Bonilla; her second husband, Reyes Medina; and brother, Bobby Joe Stinson.

A celebration of Patsy's life will be held on Monday, September 17, 2018 at 11:30AM at R.T. Foard Funeral Home, P.A., 259 East Main Street, Elkton, MD 21921.
