She is survived by her husband, Oren Compton of Acworth, Georgia; children: Oren Edward Compton, Jr. (Sandra) of Dallas, Texas, Lisa Kizer (Byron) of Woodstock, Georgia, Maria O’Connell (Kevin) of Canton, Georgia, Sue Doctor (David) of Dunwoody, Georgia; grandchildren, Tyler Kizer of Woodstock, Troy Kizer of Woodstock, Olivia O’Connell of Canton, Blake O’Connell of Canton, Jordan Battersby of Dunwoody, Cosette Doctor of Dunwoody, Caroline Doctor of Dunwoody, Cornelius Doctor of Dunwoody; puppies, Bella, Annie, Maggie Mae, Honey, and Traveler.
She was a graduate of Norwood High School in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1957 completing a study of cosmetology. She was married for 57 years with the last 19 of those years residing on a mountain top in Jasper, Georgia. Pat was a member, served on committees and a volunteer to organizations including The Classic Glass Corvette Club, Samaritan Health and Wellness Center of Pickens County, American Lady Auxiliary, The Bent Tree Lake and Wildlife, and as an event organizer including Hostess to Casino Night, New Year’s Eve, Halloween, donations organizer and others.
If there was only one friend you could have, Pat Compton was the one and only to have. She was a survivor of breast cancer and ovarian cancer. Most recently, she was fighting a courageous battle with bladder cancer that took her from us too soon. God called Pat home and she listened.
