In Loving Memory of Patti Jo Barlow

Patti Jo Barlow was born on July 6, 1960 in Seattle, WA through the union of Sammie and Roberta Wilson and was the 7th born of the 10 Wilson siblings. “Miss Patti,” as she was affectionately known, graduated from Garfield High School, and was a proud Bulldog. After high school, Patti attended cosmetology school where obtained her license as a cosmetolo- gist, barber, esthetician and manicurist. In 1991 Patti and Ricky Barlow were married and together they raised their four children, Colina, Leah, Alexia and Langston. Patti was a devoted mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend, and her unwavering strength and love were evident until her last breath. Patti’s legacy is one of love, strength and selflessness. Her family meant every- thing to her, and she created spaces filled with love, and a deep sense of belonging. Her big smile and sassy vibe were a source of inspiration to all who knew her. Patti’s love extended not only to her family and be- loved friends, but also to her community members and family pets. Her presence and love will be profoundly missed. Patti transitioned on October 30, 2023.

Her services will be held at Mt. Zion Baptist Church on Thursday, November 16th at 11AM.
