Patricia Murray Owen, 81, went home to be with the Lord on Thursday, Nov. 4, 2021, at her residence.

She was born in Granville County to the late Ocie Fraser and Pearl Glasscock Murray and was married for almost 60 years to George Owen, who survives.

She was a former administrative assistant for the Alamance County District Attorney’s Office.

Pat was a faithful and active member of Grove Park Baptist Church for many years and was a member of the Bykota Sunday School Class, as well as a member of the Alamance Women’s Business Association.

She was a loving and devoted wife, mother, grandmother and aunt who truly enjoyed spending time with her family, especially her two treasured grandchildren, Carter and Paige who were the light of her life.

She is survived by her husband, George; son Eddy Owen (Sabrina); grandchildren Carter and Paige; brothers Ocie Murray Jr. (Deborah), Allen Murray (Wanda); sister-in-law Wilma Owen; brother-in-law Harold Owen (Denane); and many adored nieces and nephews.
