Patricia C. Adams, 75, of Bartlesville, died Friday in Bartlesville.
Pat, as she was known, was born the daughter of Hollice Abner Vice and Alice Dean (Miller) Vice on May 7, 1942, in Anadarko, OK. At the age of 12, Pat and her family moved to Hulah, and Pat soon became beloved by the Cross Bell Ranch where she lived during her teenage years. Pat met Gerald Sharpton in 1962 and they made their home in Dewey for the next 30 years. She worked at H&G Pharmacy and at Streets Clothing Store in the mall for many years. In 1995 she met and married Jerry Adams and they moved to his home in Clifty, AR. Jerry preceded her in death in 1999 and she went to work in nearby Eureka Springs where she met Samuel L. Ingle. They were lucky enough to fall in love and enjoyed 13 years together. Samuel and Pat managed two leather work stores in Eureka Springs until they retired in 2007 and recently moved back to Bartlesville in 2016 to be close to her family.
Pat had many passions and talents in life including sewing, cooking and baking. She made clothes and dresses for little girls. Pat loved the country life and feeding the 23 deer that visited her home in Arkansas. Pat and Samuel enjoyed gardening and working together in the flowerbeds. Pat was always busy and lived a very full life. She will be dearly missed.
Pat is survived by Samuel L. Ingle of the home; two sons, Larry Sharpton of Bartlesville, and Wendell Sharpton and Lin of Dewey; step daughter Heather Herman and Robert of Litchfield, AZ; brother Billy Vice and Peggy of Fayetteville, AR; sister Mary Gibbs and Earl of Ft.
