The Obituary "He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away." Revelation 21:4 A Time To Be Born … Patricia, better known as "Ann" to all of her family, close friends and co-workers was the third child out of eight born to Percy Owens, Sr. and Minnie McCutchen Owens on August 10, 1954 in Kings County Hospital in Brooklyn, New York.
