Patricia S. Eckstein

Patricia Shreve Eckstein, age 76 of Newberry, SC, died Sunday April 23, 2023, at Prisma Health Heart Hospital in Columbia, SC. 

Born March 30, 1947, in Orlando, Florida, she was the daughter of the late Thomas Harold and Elsie Dean Shreve.  She is survived by her husband of 38 years, Robert Charles Eckstein of Newberry; son Jon Wallace of Fort Mill, SC; daughter Anne-Marie Phillips of Virginia Beach, VA; daughter Shelley Stone of Wilmington, DE; son William Eckstein of Columbia, SC; sister Judi McKinney of Jacksonville, FL; and sister Kathleen Long of Evans, CO.  She is also the proud grandmother of eight.

She was a member of Glory Tabernacle and attended until she had mobility issues.  She continued to support the church and read the Bible everyday.

Patty worked in the insurance industry for 35 years until she and her husband decided to adopt a child.  She focused on raising him to an adult. She also enjoyed cooking and scrap-booking.  

Patty maintained a great connection with her children and grandchildren.  It made her smile every time she heard their voices or during visits.  She was a very private person who did not want to impose on or inconvenience anyone. Her children and grandchildren made her proud and happy.

Family members will receive friends from 1:30 to 2:00 pm day of service at Glory Tabernacle.  Funeral services will be conducted at Glory Tabernacle at 2 pm, May 20th. Burial will follow at Newberry Memorial Gardens.  A gathering will be held at Glory Tabernacle following burial.
