Patti Ann Douglas Storm, 63, of Waco, Texas, passed away on November 12, 2022.

Visitation: 6 – 8 PM Thursday, November 17 at Lake Shore Funeral Home Chapel

Memorial Service: 10 AM Friday, November 18 at Lake Shore Funeral Home Chapel

Patti was born on January 17, 1959, and was a lifelong Waco-area resident. Patti was a ray of sunshine and had an infectious laugh. She was generous and would always send you away with a box of decorations, clothes, or food (whether you wanted it or not). She worked most of her life in customer service, but her 18 years at Olan Mills in Waco were some of her most memorable, and there she forged friendships that lasted the rest of her life.

Patti is preceded in death by her parents, Ray and Joanne Douglas; husband Fred Storm; and stepson, Fred Storm Jr.

Patti is survived by her daughters, Steffani Ellis and husband Jonathan King, Tiffani Ellis and wife Jaclyn; siblings, Brenda Larson, Kevin Douglas and wife Gwen, and Lori Hill; stepchildren, Tom Hahn and wife Pam, and Khris Hahn, Carol Welstead and husband Mark, Shirley Westerfield and husband Mike, Tim Storm and wife Linda, and step daughter-in-law, Diane Storm; grandchildren, Miles and Carson King; numerous nieces, nephews, step-grandchildren and their children; and last but not least, her beloved dog Sadie.

Place of Service: Lake Shore Funeral Home Chapel , 5201 Steinbeck Bend; Waco, TX 76708

  6. My heart is heavy, in the loss of this beautiful soul. What a light for many people that shined through her love for people, animals and her wonderful sense of humor. When you were with Patti you were for sure going to laugh until you cried happy tears. I have known her for over 40 years and every conversation was one that was full of laughter. Laughing at each other throwing witty (SA) comments and that Jerry Clower howl… My dear friend, I will remember you fondly with a long neck and a small glass of beer sitting at Blanton’s. Listening to “Rose Colored Glasses”, “Love to Lay You Down”, “Tight fitting Jeans” (think Agnes hated that song but we played it anyway to iritate her) …pumping those quarters in the juke box. You and Agnes were our softball cheerleaders always in the stands cheering us on! Thanks for the memories Patti I will always think of you with a giggle thinking about all of our good times driving the back roads raising some you know what! Rest in peace my sweet friend. Tell the Blanton’s crew hi for us from down here!

    Patti was one of those people who could talk to anyone – and especially to long-time friends she had not seen or heard from in a long while. Her loving demeanor lives on through her sweet family. With love and hugs to you all ~

  8. I offer my prayers of sympathy to the family and all of the fiends that she has made through the years. We all could write a book of just Patti stories! She was one of a kind and will be missed.

  9. My sympathy and prayers to the family and all of the fiends that Patti made throughout the years. We all could get together and write a book of Patti stories, she will be missed dearly.

  11. DARLENE CAREY WELLINGS

    SHE WAS A LOVELY LADY, SHE WAS OLAN MILLS FAMILLY, SHE WILL BE MISSED BY ALL WHO KNEW HER. REST IN PEACE SWEET LADY.

  12. You never had to ask how Patti felt about things she always told you how the cow ate the cabbage and she had to be that way a lot of times dealing with an upset public. Patti was old school, no beating around the bush, definitely one of her best qualities. She will definitely be missed.

  13. Patti loved her dog and her family. She was a caring and loving person. Even when she was in pain she was always thinking of others. May her pain be gone and she will be with her loved ones. My thoughts and prayers go out to her sister and family at this time.

  14. Patti was a very caring and loving person who would do anything for anyone always smiling and making every one around laugh and always ready to help any one . I was blessed to have worked with her at Olan Mills and later at Coca-Cola . My prayers go out to her family .

  15. Henry and Dolores Veselka

  16. Cheryl Moore Adams

    Patti (aka Sweet Baby), I will miss you! We laughed so much back in the day! Those were great times. Thinking of your entire family.
