Patty Payne, age 63, of Virginia Beach, VA, passed away on Saturday August 21, 2021.
Patty is survived by her beloved son Justin and grandson Landon. She was a wonderful sister to Chuck Payne (Bettye), Mike Payne (Gladys), Don Payne (Erika), Terri Judd (George), Mary Boswell (Charlie), Joe Payne and Irene Oddenino; and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins along with great nieces and great nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents, Chuck and Skeets Payne and sister Kathy Atkisson (Jeff), of Vienna, VA.
After graduating from James Madison High School in 1976, she joined the work force and found her career in accounting/bookkeeping. In 2019 she moved to the beautiful city of Virginia Beach, but her heart was always here in her hometown of Vienna, VA. She had a way of getting folks together for bowling, dinner, celebrations or just a cold beer at her favorite watering hole The Vienna Inn.
Patty was a social butterfly, an animal-love and had a giving spirit. She was fortunate enough to have so many amazing friends. She was a bright light in this world.
