Calhoun City--Patricia Gail McDonald, 70, passed away peacefully Saturday, May 18, 2019 at Baptist Nursing Home in Calhoun City. Born February 17, 1949 in Lewis County, TN, she was the daughter of the late C.T. Jaco and the late Willie May Lemay. She attended Marks High School and was a member of Duncan Hill Baptist Church. On January 8, 1962, she married R.C. McDonald, and they spent 57 wonderful years together. Patricia loved her church and her church family. She would also go out to the Sparta Opry where she enjoyed the singing and talking with friends. She loved to cook, and also loved going out to eat and shopping. Patricia was a frugal shopper who loved yard sales and flea markets. Above all, she loved her family, especially spending time with her grandkids and great-grandkids.
