Patricia Ann Horn

Patricia Ann Horn, née Hitzeman died peacefully on January 14, 2023, at home in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Pat's greatest joy was her family, and she loved being a mom, Grandma and Great Grandma. Pat was born February 20, 1939, in Chicago, Illinois to Clarence and Ann Hitzeman. The family lived in a duplex upstairs from her maternal grandparents and an aunt. Pat was an excellent student and enjoyed playing school sports.Pat graduated from high school and went to work in the offices of Martin Senour Paints, where her father worked. At night, she attended modeling school. Pat never lost her beauty, poise and love of high heels (those long legs were the envy of many women). At Martin Senour, she met a young salesman, Matthias "Matt" Horn, who became her husband on December 27, 1958. The young couple moved to Lincoln, Nebraska and nine months after their wedding, their first child was born. Pat shifted smoothly to the role of devoted mom and housewife. After two years and another child in Lincoln, the Horns moved to Wichita, Kansas, where they lived for five years and welcomed two more children to their young family. Pat single-handedly managed their home with four young children under the age of six while Matt traveled during the week using their only car. The family moved to Oklahoma City (OKC) in 1966 and, thankfully, a wood-paneled station wagon was purchased. Two additional children were born in OKC for a grand total of six, three boys and three girls. Life was hectic and full of challenges but love and faith held things together.Pat was a fantastic cook and had many special dishes and desserts that were lovingly prepared for family get-togethers, including her famous lasagna, stroganoff, chocolate sheet cake, red velvet cake, and strawberry cake. She was a member of St. Eugene Catholic Church for over 56 years and was dedicated to serving her church and school family as a coach, homeroom mom, church office aide, and newcomer's committee coordinator. She was a faithful attendee at her children's athletic events and continued the tradition by supporting her grandchildren at their games. She was a sincerely kind and welcoming person. She prided herself on her honesty and was straightforward in her opinions. Her children learned not to ask her a question unless they were prepared to hear an honest response, no fluff or little white lies.Pat was predeceased by her parents, her older brother, Sonnie, and her husband, Matt Horn. She is survived by her children, Debbie Caperton (Brent), Mike (Deidre), Martin, Suzette Williams (Bryan), Michele Harris, and Mitchell (Mandy); her grandchildren, Brian (Katie) and Julie Caperton; Rebecca and Joseph Horn; Samantha, Pearce and Zoey Horn; Matthew Williams; Patrick, Zachary and Makenzie Harris; and Harper and Hank Horn; her two great-granddaughters, Olivia and Abigail Caperton; her brother Jim Hitzeman (Becky); her sisters-in-law, Mary Lou Brose and Barb Goerke (Greg) and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, and longtime friends.In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to St Eugene Catholic Church tuition assistance or building fund.A viewing will be held on January 19, 2023, from 10:00am – 5:00pm, followed by a vigil service at 7:00 pm at Smith-Kernke, 14624 N.
