Obituary - Patricia A. Harper

Patricia A. Harper, age 67, of Raymore, Missouri, passed away on Wednesday, November 2, 2022.

A celebration of Patricia’s life will be held with a visitation on Tuesday, November 8, 2022 from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at Cullen Funeral Home, 612 W. Foxwood Dr. Raymore, Missouri 64083.

Patricia was born in Ironton, Missouri on August 19, 1955 to Robert Keeton and Virginia (Gillam) Keeton. After graduating from Roosevelt High School in St Louis, Patricia continued her education receiving two master’s degrees at Avila University. After moving with her family to Raymore in 1990, she worked for the Raymore Peculiar school district, then moved on to work for Avila University where she began an over 10 year stretch as director of admissions for both Avila and Kansas City University. In life Patricia loved to read and watch movies. She was also a huge fan of the St. Louis Cardinals, Mizzou, and the Chiefs. Her biggest passion, though, was being a mom to her 3 sons, and a grandmother to her 5 grandchildren.

Patricia was preceded in death by her parents, Robert and Virginia Keeton.

Left to cherish her memory are three sons, Aaron Harper (Kristin), Jason Harper (Cortney), and Phillip Harper (Jenny); and five grandchildren, Ethan, Ansley, Keeton, Isla, and Jack.
