Patricia (Pat) Durbin


Patricia Louise (Wilson) Durbin passed away Thursday, July 4th, 2019, at the home of her sister in Wyandotte, OK. She fought the battle long and hard, but cancer has claimed another beautiful soul. Pat was born October 4, 1948, in Joplin, MO, the daughter of the late Robert D. and Virginia Louise (Hankins) Wilson.
Pat graduated from Seneca High School with the class of 1966. She graduated from N.E.O. Miami, OK, as a registered nurse in 1975. She worked at both Freeman and the former St. John's hospitals, in Joplin.
Pat married Danny L. Durbin in 1966. Anyone who knew Pat's sense of humor, will understand her delight in saying "we were married 50 years, and they said it wouldn't last". He preceded her in death in 2016. Together they raised two children, Jeffrey L. Durbin, Neosho, MO, and Kimberly Louise Leighton, Neosho.
Survivors include her son, Jeff Durbin; daughter, Kim (Ed) Leighton; granddaughter, Brianna Louise Beecher; grandson, Daniel C. Leighton; great-grandchildren, Eden Louise Johnson and William V. Johnson. Sisters, Phyllis Sizemore, Galena, KS, Peggy Hofer (Steve), Wyandotte, and Tammy Green, Neosho; and many nieces and nephews.
Pat has been cremated. Graveside services will be held at a later date.
