Patsy Barber



Patsy Sue West Barber, 70, formerly of Meta, passed away peacefully Monday, March 29, 2021, at Jefferson City Manor Care Center.

She was born Sept. 17, 1950, a daughter of the late Robert and Lillie (Meiburger) West.

Patsy attended Maries County R-1 School District and later went on to obtain her associate degree. Patsy lived for her grandchildren, the lights of her life. Known as “Grandma Pat Pat,” she was very proud to be a grandmother. She was known for her impeccable cooking skills, including her “magic cookie bars” and the best fried chicken around. Aside from her time spent with family, Patsy enjoyed many crafts, especially embroidery. She loved to color and her trips to the zoo. She was proud of her family and will be greatly missed.

She is survived by her son, R. Duane Belk of Centertown; daughters, Jodi (Jr.) Polly of Gravois Mills and Rebecca (Dayton) Butler of Milan; brothers, Arlin West and Lloyd West; sister: Sherry West; nine grandchildren; and 15 great-grandchildren.

Patsy was preceded in death by her parents, Robert and Lillie; brothers, John West and Roy West; and sister, Judy Mace.

A celebration of Patsy’s life will be held at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, expressions of sympathy may be made to the American Cancer Society or charity of the donor’s choice.

Arrangements are under the direction of HOUSER-MILLARD Funeral Directors, 2613 West Main Street, Jefferson City, Missouri 65109 (573) 636-3838. Condolences may be left online for the family at
