Patricia Gayle Alfman, 70, of Zanesville, peacefully died in the morning hours of Friday, September 23, 2022, at Genesis Hospice Morrison House following a battle with dementia.
She was born the only daughter to the late Ralph and Ola Mae (Cauley) Rowell on February 2, 1952, in Olympia, Washington.
Patti lived all over the country with her family and wherever she called home she was always the group Mom. Being a mom was her greatest quality. Her infectious smile and motherly way of feeding all family and friends will surely be missed. She leaves behind a reputation of love and compassion and her family deeply miss her.
Patti leaves behind her husband of 21 years, Bruce Alfman, whom she gleefully married on January 12, 2001; her children, Stacey Boley, Kelly Koellhoffer, Ashley Anderson and Randy (Liz Valasco) Anderson; her brother, Michael Rowell; her darling grandchildren, Carlos Jimenez, Tristan Kimes; Franklin Allen, Jr., Alexis Burnett; Anthony Allen and Akira Allen; and her precious great-grandbabies, Jayden Fair, Alquinn Richardson, Kira Hendricks, Alistair Jennings, Ensley Richardson and Mateo Campechano.
In addition to her parents, Patti is preceded in death by her daughter, Nikki Jimenez and her sister-in-law, Faith Rowell.
The family has chosen to mourn privately and to have Patti cremated. A memorial service will be held at a later date.
