Patricia Cassetty Cannella, 83, passed away peacefully at her home on April 17, 2024. Pat was born on March 4, 1941, in Whitleyville, Tennessee.

Pat married Len Jay Cannella on August 12, 1971 in Whitleyville. The couple was blessed with three beautiful daughters, Kim, Leah and Katie.

Pat was completely devoted to our Lord and Savior and her husband and children, whom she loved very deeply. She enjoyed photographing wildflowers, hunting fossils and arrowheads, growing flowers and plants, and making beautiful quilts. In her younger days, she even showed horses. And she was always sneaking treats to the kids who came to visit! She was a homemaker in every sense of the word – She made HOME!
