May 21, 1941 - February 25, 2022
Patricia (Pat) Emerson Quarles (80), of Seneca, SC, member of Seneca Baptist Church, went to be with the Lord February 25, 2022. She was the wife of Durell L. Quarles, mother of Paige Quarles and grandmother of Van Quarles Robertson. She was the youngest child of Charlie and Ada Griffin Emerson (deceased). She had four sisters (all deceased) Rubye Watkins, Lois Dyar, Grace Sandlin, and Annette Tanksley. She had one brother, Edwin Emerson who died returning home after serving in WW2. Pat was a graduate of Keowee High School. She always treasured her memories and many friends from Keowee. She was supervisor of the South Carolina License Sales Office in Seneca until she took time off to be a full time homemaker when Paige was born. After ten years at home, she went to work for the Oconee County School System (SDOC) as a clerical teacher’s aide at Gignilliat Park Elementary and later at Code Elementary. Her years helping the teachers at school were some of her most fulfilling and fun memories. She retired in 2005 from SDOC. Throughout her life she took pride in her ability to assist others while working. As her health declined she realized even more how much joy it brought her to be able to help others. Throughout her life she enjoyed traveling, nature (especially her yard flowers) and listening to music. She will forever be remembered for her deep and empathetic love for all of her family and each of her friends. A service will be held at Davenport Funeral Home in West Union, SC Wednesday, March 2, 2022 at 4:00 p.m. The service will be performed by Dr. Ryan Wilson. Honorary pallbearers are Charles Black, Ronald Sandlin, Clyde Sandlin, Jr. (nephews), Alvin Emerson and Mark Brown (cousins). For those who do not wish to send flowers, the family requests donations are made in her honor to Grace’s Closet P.O. 126 Walhalla, SC 29691 or online at gracescloset.org.
