So saddened to hear this news. Patia was my partner in fun back in the later part of high school. So many memories of road trips in the blue Datsun 280z and memories of trips to the cow store, visits in Boone at ASU and Florida for spring break. We laughed so much together. What a fun, loving friend. I hate we lost touch over the years. Patrick, even though I’ve never met you, I’m sure that you have many traits of your mom. Cherish them and your memories of her. To Tim, Carol, Richard and Mrs. Crowe, big hugs and lots of prayers for you all. I know she will be missed. Hold on to each other and memories that will warm you hearts and carry you through the times ahead.

I met Patia years ago at Grove Point when she had a condo above my sister. You would think we had known each other for years! We had a lot of good times going out to dinner and just sitting around laughing! She was the life of the party and will truly be missed by those that loved her. Sending prayers and condolences to the family. RIP PATIA🙏🏻🙏🏻❤️

We were neighbors with Patia for over 10 years. We sent each other birthday cards and text often. She will be missed. Patrick was so lucky to have Patia as a Mother. He was the love of her life. Patrick you are in our prayers


I met Patia a year ago when she moved in to her new home. We became fast friends, shopping together, lunch dates and long conversations over coffee. She loved her new home and took pride in decorating it. I will miss her.

Patia Crowe Lundy


Patia Crowe Lundy passed away peacefully on December 29th, after a short illness in Fernandina Beach, Florida at the age of 64, with her son by her side.
She was born in Carrollton, GA the daughter of the late Donald E. Crowe and Joan Foster Crowe of Perry, GA.
Patia lived in several places growing up as a child, but spent most of her young life in Durham, NC and graduated from Northern High School. Patia’s parents raised their family as active members of Braggtown Baptist Church.
After graduation Patia worked for Globe Communications, founded in 1964 by her father who successfully built the business to become a leader in the telecommunications industry before selling the company to enjoy retirement with his family.
Patia had a vivacious and spirited personality and never met a stranger. She was that once in a lifetime friend that left her family and friends with so many memories. When Patia walked into a room, it naturally became a party with her infectious laugh. She found humor every day in all things good and bad. No one loved a good joke better than Patia.
Patia was passionate about things she believed in and cared deeply for those she loved. Her passion in life was a simple one; and she excelled at being the best mother she could be to Patrick. She was an active mom with his school and was his biggest fan at the many sporting events he participated in from a young child.
A coastal girl at heart, Patia dedicated her life to her family and was a beloved mother, daughter, sister, aunt, and friend. Patrick remembers his mother “as the most perfect mother a son could ever ask for.” Patia was always supportive and encouraged Patrick to pursue his goals. She was especially proud of his golf career and always loved to hear when he won a tournament.
In addition to her mother, Patia is survived by her loving son Patrick R. Lundy of Myrtle Beach, SC, and beloved siblings Richard Crowe (Carol) of Durham, NC; Tim Crowe (Lynn) of Perry, GA; Carol Lee (Ken) of Whiteville, NC, and her many loving cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends.
Patia’s family will host a Celebration of Life at a later date. The date and location will be announced. The event will be open to family and friends.
In lieu of flowers please love and care for your family and friends. Show kindness to those with fur and feathers. Bring humor into a part of every day. Stand strong for what is right. Pay an act of kindness forward for Folds of Honor and First Responders. The family wishes for fond memories of Patia to fill the hearts of all who knew and loved her.
