In Memory

Patty Field (Chapman)


Patricia (Patty) Ann Field Chapman
Corpus Christi, TX




Patricia (Patty) Ann Field Chapman, passed away gently on November 9, 2015, at the age of 73.


She is survived by her sister, Deborah Field Sander, and numerous beloved cousins and friends.


Patty's true calling in life was loving and caring for pets others had forgotten. Her love and money were spent on caring for her old, old dogs. They have all been adopted by a friend, and will live out their lives in her home.


Patty asked that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to P.A.L.S. Animal Shelter, 1101 Navigation Blvd, Corpus Christi, TX 78407, or at an animal shelter in your community.


Her wish is for the funds to be used for the care and adoption of geriatric animals.


A private celebration of Patty's life will be held at a later date.

Patty (Field) Chapman and I were best friends all through grade school and high school. As a friend, she was loyal, faithful to the end. She laughed easily and heartily, and her love for animals was lifelong. As her senior year at Ray was approaching, our local Naval Air Station's O & R operations ended and all O & R operations were moved to Pensacola, Florida, resulting in Patty's family moving there in order for her father to keep his civil service job. Patty regretted not being able to graduate from Ray with her classmates. Instead, she graduated from Escambia High School, Pensacola, FL, and was a member of the National Honor Society. A year later, the family returned to Corpus Christi, and her parents became owner-operators of a convenience store and taproom. Patty attended Del Mar College, and she worked many years for Alfred Edge Realty Company. Her marriage to Bill Chapman ended too soon, as Bill died of a heart attack at a young age. Patty remained single, sharing her home with her widowed mother until her mother's death, and then with her "fur-ever" friends. She volunteered at P.A.L.S Animal Rescue Shelter for years, until her health prevented her from continuing that labor of love any longer. I will miss her and will always treasure the wonderful childhood memories we shared.
