Mrs. Patricia Adcock Sibold, age 85, of Covington, died Thursday, January 20, 2022, surrounded by her loving family at her residence. She was the wife of the late Thomas Hull Sibold, Sr.
Mrs. Sibold was born June 6, 1936, in Covington, the daughter of the late Wallace O. Adcock, Sr., and Mary Louise Smith Adcock. Pat was a woman who lived for God, her family, and her church (especially the choir). That was everything. She cherished and fully celebrated every holiday and enjoyed the natural beauty of every season. Growing up on Magazine Street in Covington, her neighbors were her family too. She never met a stranger and stopped and talked to everyone she knew. She loved life and found humor in anything, always looking for the bright side of any situation. As a mother, she was involved in all of her children’s activities serving as classroom mom, scout leader, dance mom, and marched her children to church every time the doors were open. Pat loved her home but ventured out to the workforce later in life. You may have seen her smiling face at Grants Store; Holiday Inn behind the desk as a clerk, a bank teller at Covington National Bank, or helping you find the perfect outfit at The Lemon Twist. She always worked in the public so she could meet new friends and talk with everyone. Pat and her husband, Tommy loved riding through our lovely area including neighborhoods, Main Street, and stopping to sit on friends’ porches to just talk and enjoy their community family. Pat continued giving her motherly love to her grandchildren with her support in all their activities, sleepovers at her house, and taxi driver extraordinaire. Pat has left a legacy of patriotism, love of family, church, friends, and a true admiration of our beautiful Virginia mountains.
