Patricia was the oldest of three daughters born to Mary (Bill) Jackson and Cupert (Lillian) Hernandez. She was preceded in death by her parents, sister Pauline (William) Hutcherson and by the love of her life, Melton Ambrose Byerly.  Patricia devoted her life to her family, faith and community. She and Melton ran Byerly’s Groceries for over 30 years serving the residents of Trumann. Patty was also an employee of Walmart following the closing of the store.
