Patricia Ann Baillet passed away September 20, 2021, peacefully at Laurel Health and Rehab. She was born on December 11, 1929, to Robert and Burnette Dantic at their home in Laurel. She attended Laurel schools and graduated in 1947. She met the love of her life Robert Baillet and they were married in 1949. Together they were lifelong members of First Baptist Church in Laurel. Her entire life was devoted to her husband and family with her Lord and Savior as the center of their home.

Pat worked for Northwest Freightline in the billing department after high school. She became a full-time homemaker after the birth of her four children. Later after the children had grown she worked part time through the years at JC Penney’s , Jan’s Deli and Yellowstone Valley Christian Schools. While working at the school she suffered a stroke and had to give up that job.

She loved taking care of her home and spent hours baking cookies, pies and her specialty, cinnamon rolls. She was an accomplished seamstress and made many dresses for her daughters and granddaughters. She was the church treasurer at First Baptist Church for 40 plus years and a great bookkeeper. She was a quiet servant to her family, church and community. She will be greatly missed.

She is survived by her daughter Mary (Jack) Tatum of Frederick, Colorado and grandchildren Tonya (Chris) Bernal, Daycia (Tim) Langridge, Kami (Jarrod) Fugate, Joc (Kelly) Tatum; daughter Linda (Scott) Metcalf and grandchildren Nathan and Nick. She is also survived by her seven great-grandchildren Brandon, Megan, Jacob, Shiloh, Gianna, Emalyn and Allison; beloved brother Robert Dantic and many nieces and nephews.
