Patricia Anne (Loving) Pim, 91, of Enid, Oklahoma passed away November 25, 2020 with her loving son at her bedside.
Patty was born October 8, 1929 in Wendell, Idaho to the union of the late Ira and Clora (Gibson) Loving. She graduated from Hereford High School in Hereford, Texas.

Patty was the retired Executive Director of the American Red Cross in Garfield County. While serving she developed, organized and implemented the first ever mobile meals in Enid. This program ensured senior citizens and low-income families of Enid received a hot meal every day. She was always a pillar in fundraising events for local churches and art groups.

Patty also served as treasurer for the United Methodist Women for many years. With a love of music, Patty also served as President of the Women’s Auxiliary for the Enid Symphony. She was a wonderful mother, a compassionate and independent leader in her community, and she will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.
