02/10/1937 - 10/12/2022

Hearts and Yellow Roses withered across Texas and Virginia with the news of Patricia ‘Pat’ Jo Robb’s, passing on October 12, 2022. 

Patricia was born to the late Loyd and Loy Mae Mitchell in Quinlan, Texas on February 10, 1937. She was a loving wife, mother and tough-Texan, that was proud to be from The Lone Star state. She will be most remembered for her warmth, wit and generous heart.

She attended North Texas State and SMU and worked in the retail industry. Her interests and talents were many; gardening, quilting, cooking, entertaining, reading, decorating, volunteering and a lover of romance and mystery movies. 

Patricia was preceded in death by her high school sweetheart and late husband of 58 years, John ‘JD’ Robb; parents; Loyd and Loy Mae Mitchell, siblings;  Frances White, Kay Wenzel, Monty Mitchell and Keith Mitchell. 

Left to cherish her memory are her children, John David Robb II, Mitchell Ries Robb, and Anna Bowen Fitzgerald; brother and sister-in-law, Don and Suzy Robb, as well as nieces, nephews and many dear friends. 

While a funeral will not be held, a Celebration of Life will take place February 10, 2023 in Norfolk, Virginia. Please contact Anna for more details. 

Should family and friends desire, contributions may be made in her memory to the National Kidney Foundation or the Trees for Change Foundation  Contribution acknowledgments may be emailed to Anna at

What a fine lady to have known in my formulative years. Pat was a the fiends Mom you all loved to visit and share time with. She had terrific cookies for us friends and neighborhood. She was also that steady hand to all of us when we needed a little extra help and understanding. She was that special mom everybody liked. Her comforting smile to all will be missed. God bless Pat and the family.

I have heard many good things about Pat! To her family, I wish you did not have to go through this! I have only meet Pat once, one thing she said to me was, “ I heard about the top you got – stop staring at my flags. Glad it was you, not me, that got that.” Very funny, loved her instantly!
