Obituary

Patricia Diane Brayboy was born on January 7, 1954, in Painter, Virginia, to the late John William Floyd, Jr. and Louise Keys-Floyd. The Floyd family moved to Kent Narrows, Maryland, where she attended Queen Anne’s County School District until the eighth grade. In 1967, the family moved to Delaware where she attended and graduated from Caesar Rodney High School in 1973. Patricia also enrolled in Kent Vocational School in Woodside, Delaware where she received a certificate in Culinary Arts.

Patricia began working at Playtex International in 1974. She had several positions while employed, including assembly line operator, machine operator and Quality Control Inspector. She was a hardworking and dedicated employee until she retired, after 43 years of service, in January 2017.

Prior to her marriage, Patricia lived with her oldest sister, Margaret and her two children, Leetress and Kimberly. She assisted in nurturing her nieces for approximately 6 years before having a family of her own. On March 13, 1979, Patricia married Jimmie Lee Brayboy, Sr., at Emmanuel Pentecostal Church of God in Camden, Delaware, where the Honorable Bishop Joseph P. Cooper, Sr. was pastor. From this union, they had two wonderful children – Jimmie Lee Jr. and Jermaine Andre. They lived in Lebanon, Delaware for many years finally settling in Camden, Delaware, where she raised her family.

Her greatest accomplishment was receiving the Lord as her personal Savior as a teenager. Under the leadership of the Honorable Bishop Joseph P. Cooper, Sr., Patricia matured as a Christian and held true to the standard of Holiness until her departure from this life. She participated in different church auxiliaries such as being a member of the Pentecostal Choral Ensemble, Willing Workers Committee, Sunday School and Usher Departments. Also, she was the senior announcement clerk for many years. Patricia loved the Lord with all of her heart and stood for what she believed in until the end.

Patricia was known for her style and grace. She had to have her hair styled a certain way, clothes coordinated to the finest detail and beautiful hats and shoes to match every outfit. She used to say “that she knew how she looked when she left the house.”

Patricia loved having fun even though her demeanor was very serious. Her joys were crocheting, reading, cleaning, cooking, shopping and spending time with family. Some of her favorite pastimes included, talking on the phone, shopping and having dinners with her “Inner Circle”.

Patricia was preceded in death by her father, John William Floyd, Jr.; one brother, Clarence Floyd and one sister, Carolyn Ayers.

Patricia leaves to cherish memories, her husband of 41 years, Jimmie Lee Brayboy, Sr.; two sons, Jimmie Lee Brayboy (Takiera) of Enterprise, AL and Jermaine Brayboy of Baltimore, MD; mother, Louise E. Brayboy; three sisters, Margaret E. Burris of Dover, DE, Elsie S. Floyd of Dover, DE and Teresa E. Benson (Dale) of Harrington, DE; two brothers, Maurice K. Floyd, Sr. of Dover, DE and Clyde W. Floyd (Wanda) of Camden, DE; one granddaughter, Danielle K. Brayboy of (Clarksville, TN); two special nieces, Leetress M. Burris and Kimberly D. Brown and a host of nieces, nephews, family and friends.

Dear Brayboy,
This was my nickname for you. I’ll miss you very much from calling, shopping, vacationing to visiting. We had wonderful times together such as talking about spiritual things or just being in each other’s company. You took pride on how you looked and what you wore. You were not only my sister but my best friend. You will always be in my heart.
Love,
Margaret

You will always hold a special place in my heart. From living with our family until you were married to seeing me grow into the woman I am today, we have had many terrific times. You have been a great supporter in all of my endeavors. We had wonderful times visiting one another, shopping, dining out and taking vacations. I loved your smile and laughter. I also admired your style, grace and sass. Your death was unexpected but only the Lord knows why He took you during this time. Your death has left a deep wound in my heart which I believe God will heal in time. From this experience, I realize that “LIFE is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath AWAY!” (Author Unknown) Thank you for all of the breathless moments, Aunt Pat Brayboy!
Love,
Leetress

Thoughts and prayers to the Floyd & Brayboy families and Emmanuel P.C.O.G at the transitioning of Sis. Pat Brayboy. She has fought a good fight, kept the faith and is now reigning with the Lord. Sis. Pat was a sweet soul who loved and enjoyed spending time with her family and friends. I will miss seeing and conversing with her during some holiday dinners at the home of her neice and my Homie, Kimberly Brown. Continued prayers of strength and comfort for Floyd/Brayboy families and everyone who knew Sis. Patricia Brayboy. She will be missed but never forgotten.

"We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord."
2 Corinthians 5:8 KJV

Ms. Pat was one of our Best customers. She loved to shop and we loved seeing her smiling face every time she came into the store. We enjoyed hearing her stories about the trips she had planned with her mom and how you was looking forward to her Granddaughter coming for summer vacation. The girls at Cato Fashions in Dover will truly miss her.
