Patricia A. Veal Balthrope was the daughter of the late William and Leola Gantt Veal. Patricia, affectionately known as Pat, was born on February 18, 1934 in Lexington County, South Carolina. She transitioned, ever so sweetly, from earth to Glory on September 20, 2020.
Pat was educated in the school district 1 of Lexington County, graduating from Lakeview High School. After graduating high school, she moved to Brooklyn, New York, where she spent most of her years. Her family was blessed by her return to the Carolinas where she lived out the balance of her life.
Pat was very intelligent, as soft spoken woman of class and sophistication. Pat was a woman of very few words, but her beautiful eyes gave life to her unspoken words. Her passing leaves a void in the hearts of her family and all who knew her. She will be missed immensely.
She was preceded in death by her parents, her sisters Rosa Veal, Gladys Veal Thurmond and Margaret Veal Brown and two brothers, William Veal and Herman Veal.
She leaves to cherish sweet memories of her: a daughter, Stacey B. (Rev. Stanley) Haltiwanger and one son, Armondo Balthrope, both of Columbia, SC; one brother, Frank (Bobbie) Veal of Columbia, SC; two sisters-in-law, Berneatha Veal of Columbia, SC and Louise Veal of West Columbia, SC. She was blessed with three beautiful granddaughters: Ashley and Amber Haltiwanger and Aleah (Antonio) Jackson; three great-grandchildren: Jeniah W. Haltiwanger, William C. and Jayvion Balthrope.
