Patsy was born December 23, 1932 in Franklin, Texas to Grover “Cleve” Cleveland and Mary Neoma “Oma” (Hogan) Bristow. Her father was a farmer, and her mother took care of the home. Growing up as the youngest of three children, Patsy lived on a farm and had lots of animals, including her horses and donkeys. She loved them all.
