Indianapolis - Patricia Lou Singer Storm Barker, 91, graduated to her heavenly home Tuesday, February 11, 2020, at Rosegate Village of Indianapolis. Her loving family was faithfully by her side. She was born July 10, 1928 in Indianapolis to the late Ervin and Zelma Shockley Singer. Patricia worked for several companies in the Indianapolis area including University Heights Hospital and Blue Cross-Blue Shield before retiring to Florida in 1987. She recently moved back to her hometown of Indianapolis after living in Jamaica Bay in Fort Myers, FL for the past 32 years.
Patricia’s father, Ervin Gilbert Singer, was a devoted follower of Jesus Christ and served as a wonderful testimony of the grace of God to her and her children. Pat loved to attend church and participated in many of its activities. She served in the choir worship ministry, children’s ministry and the benevolence ministry that provided comfort for those in need. She had a beautiful soprano voice and enjoyed singing in the church choir. Patricia knew that Jesus was her Lord and Savior and that the time had come for her to depart. She knew that her true citizenship was in Heaven.
---- For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body that it may be conformed to His glorious body, according to the working by which He is able even to subdue all things to Himself. (Philippians 3:20-21) ----
