Patricia Carol Hoskinson - Oak Island

Patricia Carol HoskinsonPatricia Carol Hoskinson, 92, of Oak Island, NC, departed to a kinder, better place on February 2, 2012 while at home. James, as always, was by her side. She was also surrounded by her children and grandchildren.

Patricia was born in Deshler, Ohio, on June 20, 1919, to the late Terrance B. King and Mildred House. In addition to her parents, Patricia was preceded in death by her brothers, Winfield and Byron King.

As a sophomore at Deshler High School, she met the love of her life, James Hoskinson. Shortly after graduation, on September 26th, 1937, they united in marriage. Thus began a love affair that would last for nearly 75 years. Their devotion to each other and their long and loving marriage was an inspiration to all who crossed their paths.

From her earliest years, Patricia was a talented artist. As a young child, she attended classes at the Toledo Museum of Art. At Deshler High School, she served as the artist and editor of the school paper. She received a Bachelor of Science degree in Art Education from the University of Akron. She was a dedicated art teacher in the Akron public school system for eleven years. While residing in Akron, she was accepted as a member of the Business and Professional Women organization. She also served as the President of the local chapter of the AARP in Akron, coordinating monthly dinners and speakers for senior citizens. Upon her retirement in 1978, she retired to beautiful Long Beach, NC, realizing her lifelong dream of living by the ocean. She became an active member of the Associated Artists of Southport, and served as their President. She was an active volunteer in various art groups in Wilmington and Southeastern North Carolina, and was an award winning artist. Patricia was an active volunteer for the North Carolina Maritime Museum at Southport. Patricia and her husband James spent over thirty years traveling the world, touring nearly every continent, focusing on art and architecture.

Patricia loved spending time with her family whom she loved dearly. She was a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother. She lived life to the fullest, until the end. She will live on in the hearts of all who knew her; she will never be forgotten. Her passion for life, art, education, and travel impacted her family forever.

James is forever grateful for the compassionate and kind care that Patricia received from Dr. Domenic Palagruto and the Lower Cape Fear Hospice group. Thank you Kim, Tammy, and Chris.

Patricia is survived by her loving husband, James, of 74 years; two sons, David King Hoskinson and wife Jean Marterre of Charleston, SC, and Dennis James Hoskinson of Phoenix, AZ; four grand children, Maria Yonsun Reiss of Phoenixville, PA, Patricia Anne Ko of Traverse City, MI, David James Hoskinson of Laveen, AZ, and Susan Denise Stoddard of Phoenix, AZ. She also leaves this world with 12 great grandchildren who adored her David Jr, Joshua, and Courtney Hoskinson; India Reiss; Ashley, Rachel, Megan, and Alyssa Ko; and Faith, Elise, Kaitlyn, and Chloe Stoddard.
