Patricia "Patty" Darlene Bussell Parksey, 65, of Indianapolis, passed away on Tuesday, March 23, 2021.
Patty was born on June 19, 1955, to Samuel and Frances (Tesner) Bussell in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Patty was a homemaker, she dedicated her life to her family. She was a money shark and the coupon Queen, and her children swear they stopped accepting double coupons because of her. She liked her lottery tickets and always had to have a ton of crushed ice, none other would do. If her Thursday and Sunday paper didn't show up, lord help the paper man - and her daughter Donna whom she would call and make come dig it out of the snow for her! Old school game shows were her guilty pleasure and she was Elvis Presley's Number 1 Fan. A beloved story to tell of hers was when he was in the army, before he was famous, he actually held her as a baby. She had a wonderful sense of human and always kept everyone laughing, be it at her antics or with her jokes.
As fun as she was, Patty was also deeply loved and she had a big heart. She was the backbone of her family, and held them all up. She was superwoman, and a warrior, she beat Covid, the woman had 9 lives. She had a lot of love to give, and gave it freely. She adopted many kids unofficially as a grandma. She was the best mother and grandmother anyone could hope to have, and her loss will be mourned by many.
Patty is survived by her daughters, Michelle and Donna; her bonus sons Jeff, Tony, and John; her sisters Gloria, Sandra, and Jackie; her grandchildren Heavenly, Sammy, Kenny, Lil Chad, Raymond, Jayden, Jason, Arya, Violet, and many bonus grandchildren; and many great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and great-nieces, and great-nephews.
