Patsy Ann Smith Barlowe, 84, of Marion, passed away Friday, December 15, 2023 at UNC Health Blue Ridge.

A native of Marion, Patsy was born January 2, 1939 to the late Gurson Alvin Smith and Katie Mae Copeland Smith.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Amberse Barlowe, Sr.; one brother, Donald Roger Smith; two infant siblings; a great grandchild, Thurston Vettraino; and a son-in-law, Kevin Troutman.

She is survived by her children, Amberse Barlowe, Jr. (Debbie), Leslie Sparks (T.R.), James Barlowe (P.J.), Kathy Jimison (Myron), Kevin Barlowe (Susan), and Melissa Harris (Ron); sixteen grandchildren, Carrie Barlowe, Ryan Sparks, Shelby Alleyne, Aaron Barlowe, Patrick Parker, Aly Kelly, David Troutman, Bryan Troutman, Avery Barlowe Crouch, Katie Barlowe, Emma Barlowe, Sara Barlowe, Trent Johnson, Aidan Harris, Sean Harris, and Isaac Harris; and six great grandchildren, Micah Presnell, Lucas Troutman, Colby Kelly, Maverick Johnson, Leo Sparks, and Colt Johnson.
