In Memory of Patricia Oglesby

Patricia Oglesby, 71, of Suwanee, GA, passed away on July 02, 2022, with her daughter by her side, after a long hard battle with Alzheimer’s.

Patricia was born on August 5, 1950, to Catherine Stack in Dublin, Ireland. She was an orphan along with her half-brother in an Irish orphanage. At the age of five, Patricia was adopted by a military family, along with her half-brother Michael. She had an incredible journey traveling all over the world, living in over 26 countries. After graduating from high school, she went on to study some college and landed her first job at the Department of Veteran Affairs. In 1969, she met Paul Oglesby, and they wed in 1970, going on to have two children, Heather Elizabeth Oglesby, and Rebecca Anne Oglesby. When Patricia had Heather and Rebecca, she decided to dedicate her life to being an amazing, loving, and wonderful mother, introducing them to God, faith, and the meaning of sacrifice.

Patricia became ill in her early sixties and moved in with her daughter Heather, 7 years ago. Shortly after, Patricia was diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s disease. Patricia and Heather made a pact, that the diagnosis would not be a "death sentence", but rather an opportunity to live life to the fullest.

Patricia and Heather decided to become advocates for Alzheimer’s awareness and for the health and wellbeing of Caregivers. They were featured in the New York Times and other media outlets for their fight and advocacy.

We will miss her greatly. Patricia was predeceased by Michael Burner, brother, Paul William Oglesby, ex-husband, Laverne, and Charles Burner adopted parents. She is survived by her daughters, Heather Elizabeth Oglesby, and Rebecca Anne Oglesby.
