Pat, was born in Wetumka , Oklahoma on March 15, 1932 to Leman Tilford and Tresa Alta (Garris) Case. Pat was initially to be named Shirley, but at the urging of her siblings, her parents decided on Patricia. As a young girl, Pat loved dogs, and she took in many strays over the years. Needless to say Pat and her 4 siblings definitely kept things interesting around the house. At an early age, Pat’s family moved to Oklahoma City. Pat attended Lafayette during grade school, and later Capitol Hill Jr. High, then on to Capitol Hill High School. During high school, Pat attended college courses at night through Midwest Christian College. In 1950, Pat graduated from Capitol Hill High School.

Shortly after graduation, Pat married the love of her life, Roy Lee Meler.

Pat and Roy raised their family in the church and were longtime members at Capitol Hill Baptist. Over the last several years, the family have been faithful members at Southern Hills Baptist Church

In 1970, Pat began working for Oklahoma Allergy Clinic. She spent 27 ½ years with the clinic, until retiring in 1997. She made many great friendships and memories with her co-workers, and many of them became lifelong friends. In her spare time, Pat enjoyed being involved with her church, crocheting, sewing, knitting and reading. Above all, Pat’s favorite thing was her family. She loved them dearly.
