Mrs. Patricia “Pat” Drake Aultman

October 17, 2016
Patricia “Pat” Drake Aultman passed away October 12, 2016. She is “Heaven Bound” because Jesus Christ became her Savior and Lord many years ago. Services were held on Sunday, October 16, 2016, at Byron United Methodist Church with Rev. Tom Carruth officiating. 

Pat was born March 24, 1931, in Atlanta to the late Arthur L. and Thelma S. Drake. She graduated from Roosevelt High School and was employed by Graybar Electric Company for 18 years, serving as teller, head bookkeeper, and assistant to the District Financial Manager. It was while working there that she met her husband, Richard, and they married in 1958. Pat served with her husband, a United Methodist minister in the South Georgia Conference, for 31 years. During that time, she was employed five years at Epworth By The Sea. Upon retirement, they settled in Byron and for 18 years, have been members of Byron United Methodist Church and the Faith Sunday School Class. 

Her survivors are her husband, Rev. Richard Aultman; their son and daughter in law, David R. and Celetta Aultman of Vidalia; and a sister, Sylvia Galbaugh of Atlanta. 

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Byron United Methodist Church, P.O. Box 6, Byron, GA 31008.
