Patti Arlene Spurgeon Ervin, 66, was called home to be with the Lord on March 29, 2021 in Pasadena, Texas.
Patti was born in Uvalde, Texas on February 11, 1955 to Herman and Ruth Spurgeon. Patti spent her childhood and much of her life in Odessa, Texas. She was a bright student and accomplished athlete with a great love for the Lord from an early age. Patti was head cheerleader and Miss Odessa High School. She went on to tour around the country, singing with acts such as Wayne Newton, Glen Campbell, Robert Goulet and Bobby Goldsboro. Her larger-than-life personality and unmatched sense of humor also landed her a gig writing for Joan Rivers. Patti planted her roots as a West Texas troubadour, singing with well-known local acts like Pepper Martin and The Bill Ervin Band.
Patti’s passions went beyond her abilities to entertain. She worked to help improve countless lives at High Sky Children’s Ranch and Ervin Wellness Center. She had a big heart for the needy and for the broken. She loved to give people the good news of God and guide them in deepening their spiritual walk.
Perhaps her greatest passion was her family. Patti was “Gigis” to a two-year-old granddaughter. The two shared a close relationship and so many wonderful memories that many children never get to experience with their grandparents in a lifetime. Ellie was Patti’s heart, and vice
Patti is survived by her daughter, Alexandria Ervin Foster and son-in-law Landon Foster, her sisters, Rita Adcock, Sherry Fletcher, brother Howard Spurgeon and her granddaughter, Elliana Foster.
She is preceded in death by her daughter, Brittainni Golden, father, Herman Spurgeon, her mother, Ruth Spurgeon and brother Herman Spurgeon, Jr.
Patti’s life will be celebrated with a service at 12:00 p.m., Saturday, April 24, 2021 at Cisco Church of the Nazarene with Pastor Tyler Parson officiating.
