On May 4, 1947, she was baptized at Immanuel Baptist Church in Wichita, Kansas and she spent the rest of her life devoted to God and was an active prayer warrior. She graduated from Wichita High School East in 1951. She had four children with her first marriage but later married the love of her life, Herman Warren King, at United Methodist Church of Wichita on May 3, 1974.
She is preceded in death by her mother Pauline and father Clifford Schornick, sister Betty DeCourse, husband Warren King and twin grandchildren, Timothy and Thomas Huskey.
She is survived by her siblings; Cliff Schornick and Gene Wright.

Ms. Pat taught swimming and ran an in-home daycare for years. She also worked for the Boot Hill Museum for many years. Her grandchildren were considered her pride and joy. She loved being around kids. Her happiest memories included taking her grandchildren to places such as Boot Hill and Branson, Missouri. She never met a stranger and had the gift of gab. She will be adding a ray of sunshine down on all of those that she loved.
There will be a private memorial service for the family at a later date. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the American Cancer Society for Breast Cancer, honoring three of her own children surviving breast cancer.
