West Columbia, SC
Patricia “Pat” Dunn Harrell, 71, of West Columbia, SC went home to be with her Lord Savior on Wednesday, February 20, 2019, at Prisma Baptist Healthcare in Columbia, SC. She died peacefully in her sleep. She fought until the end but she was ready to go.
Pat was born in Laurens, SC to Mary Boggs Dunn of Laurens and the late James Harold Dunn on October 23, 1947. A member of Rockvale Baptist Church, she attended Anderson University and while living in Columbia, did Interior Decorating and loved being a homemaker and decorating her home. She was a former member of the gospel singing group, The Revelators, who traveled all over the state singing with her beautiful alto voice. She most enjoyed helping the less fortunate. She was a giving person who gave and gave and so enjoyed doing it. She loved making people laugh. She never met a stranger. If you knew her, she made you laugh.
Surviving is the love of her life, Tom Harrell, who stood by her until the end, constantly seeing to her every need and always wanting her to be taken care of, and also by her mother. She is also survived by her daughters, Dana Lynn King of Columbia and Amy King Brooks of Pelzer; sister, Joyce Dunn Madden of Hickory Tavern; brother, Larry Craig Dunn (Joan) of Kings Mountain, NC; grandchildren, Timothy Lindley of Charleston and Star Brooks of Pelzer; step-son, Todd Harrell; step-daughter, Ashlie Harrell Green; step-grandchild, Amelia Green all of Columbia; and nephews, Joey Madden, Jay Madden and Tracy Burke.
