Patricia Eubanks Rivenbark, 64, of Burgaw passed unexpectedly, but very peacefully from her earthly life on Friday, November 24, 2017 at Pender Memorial Hospital.
She was born June 17, 1953 in Xenia, Ohio, the daughter of Anna Mae Eubanks and the late Willie Franklin Eubanks. Patricia was preceded in death by her husband, Dewey Rivenbark, Sr.; and her son-in-law, Shane Lunesford.
In addition to her mother, Patricia is survived by her daughter, Jennifer Lunesford; sons, Clay Jasper (Tiffany) and Joseph Jasper (Deneen); grandchildren, Willie Lunesford, Caleb Lunesford, Alysa Jasper, Wyatt Jasper, Kyle Jasper, Nathan Jasper, and Benjamin Jasper; sister, Pam Bacon (Bill); sister-in-law, Myra Toler (Lee); aunt, Laura Wilson (Allan); uncle, Jerry Bowling (Dee); as well as many extended family and friends.
Patricia was employed with Pender County Sheriff Department as a telecommunicator in the 911 Center for the past 18 years. She was a faithful member of Jordans Chapel United Methodist Church.
Patricia, beloved daughter, mother, wife, grandmother, sister and friend lived life to the fullest. She had a great sense of humor, loved bluegrass music and traveling, but her greatest joy in life was her dear family. Even as Patricia’s family weathers the storm – and weeps for her passing – Patricia’s family and friends cherish the memories. As anyone who has spent time at the beach will tell you, even the worst hurricane eventually gives way to blue skies.
The family will receive friends 6 to 8:00 p.m. on Wednesday, November 29, 2017 at Quinn-McGowen Funeral Home, Burgaw.
Funeral service will be 11:00 a.m. on Thursday at Jordans Chapel United Methodist Church with The Rev. Bill Applewhite and The Rev. William Hill Pearsall officiating. Burial will follow in the church cemetery.
Patricia's last gift in this world was the gift of sight to another person by the donation of her corneas through "Miracles of Sight".
Flowers are welcome and memorial gifts to Pender Adult Services, PO Box 1251, Burgaw, NC 28425 will be greatly appreciated.

Anna Mae,my heart breaks for you. I have so many memories of playing with Patricia and Pam. Every time I stayed with Aunt Mary and Uncle Eddie, Merle and Jolynn, we would always swing in that big tree that was in the front yard. I think the girl that swung us was Marynette. Don't know if I spelled her name right. I'll always cherish my memories of us playing together. I am Sam's daughter Pat. God Bless you.
