She was born March 26, 1941 in Buffalo, MO, the 7th of 8 children born to James Monroe and Martha Monervia (Pruett) Wilson. Patsy attended White Palace and Buffalo High School, graduating in 1958. She was united in marriage to Everett Durrington on March 4, 1960 at Buffalo. To this union, two sons were born, Doug and Greg. She was saved and baptized at an early age and was a long-time member of the Buffalo Bible Baptist Church. Patsy and Everett first made their home in Wichita, KS while Everett worked for Boeing and other aircraft manufacturers. Wishing to get away from city life and be closer to family, in 1966 they purchased the farm at Louisburg, moving there permanently in 1968. Patsy worked for the Dallas County R1 School District for 39 years, from 1971 until 2010, retiring only because of her health.

She also enjoyed working on wood crafts, watching major league baseball, and watching college and professional basketball. Patsy was preceded in death by her parents; three brothers; and two sisters.
