Mavis Lillian Schnock
Mavis Lillian (Patton) Schnock, 63, of Tucson, Arizona, passed away peacefully on May 7, 2020, prepared for eternal life with her Heavenly Father.
Mavis was born in Rockford, Illinois, on May 29, 1956, to Donald and Nola (Marean) Patton. After graduating from Rockford High School, she went on to study cosmetology and worked in that profession for several years. Later, her work life included a variety of roles where she enjoyed using her gifts of compassion and care for others.
Mavis was a Godly woman who loved Jesus. Her son, Donald, was her pride and joy and she loved being his mother. She was known for her friendly greetings, unending generosity and overall kindheartedness, to family, friends and strangers alike. Her compassionate spirit and desire to please were always evident, even as her health declined over the course of recent years.
She is lovingly remembered by her son, Donald Schnock (Erica Decker) of Phoenix, AZ, and her four siblings Harry W. Patton (Cathy Hunt), Tucson, AZ; Cindy M. Patton, Bisbee, AZ; Lynn R. Patton, Tucson, AZ; and Jack D. Patton (Jane), Des Moines, IA. She is also survived by two grandchildren, Noah Decker and Natalie Decker; nieces and nephews, Melissa Davis (Jim), Lauren Brown (Donnie), Joseph Patton, Haley Patton, Davis Patton (Taylor), and Anna Patton; as well as several great nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her parents, and her former spouse, Alan Schnock.
