Patricia Mays Herbert, 78, passed away peacefully Wednesday, Jan. 16, 2019. She was born Nov. 17, 1940, to the late Donald McCloud Mays and Reba Wills Garrison in Norfolk.

She was preceded in death by her parents and brother, Donald Garrison Mays.

She is cherished dearly in memory by her children, Rick Buzzy (Laura) of Virginia Beach, Chris Buzzy (Cathy) of Hollis, New Hampshire, Lorrie (Buzzy) Villanueva of Virginia Beach, Jennifer (Rodney) Stoltz of Norfolk and Todd (Susie) Herbert of Norfolk. She is also survived by her grandchildren, Ashley Villanueva Magerkurth (Dave) of Virginia Beach, Kristina Southard Patton (Jack) of Virginia Beach, Brooke Villanueva Kampney (Josh) of Blacksburg, Sydney Southard Smith (Larry) of Newport News, Christopher Buzzy of Burlington, Vermont, Victoria and Mayah Villanueva of Chesapeake, Ryan Buzzy of Virginia Beach, Cadyn Olson of Norfolk and Henry and Howard Herbert of Norfolk; and many great-grandchildren, extended family and many close friends.

Pat loved shopping, her half glasses of wine, her chihuahua Teddy and being surrounded by her large and crazy family.

She will be missed for many things such as her delicious sherry cake and potato salad, her strong-will, watching her laugh until she cried and her sparkly clothing. Most of all, she will be sorely missed for the infinite love she showed to every member of her family. We were truly the luckiest family to have her, and we will honor her wishes to always be close and part of each other’s lives.

Pat’s memorial service will be held at 2:30 p.m., Sunday, Jan. 20, at Calvary Assembly of God in Virginia Beach, where she was a member and devoted Christian.
