Patricia Ann Cherry, 58, of Beaumont, died Thursday, November 10, 2016. She was born on March 14, 1958, to Helen Faye Barrett and Gordon Evans Thomas, and had been a longtime resident of Beaumont. Patricia was a school teacher who devoted herself to so many young people, many of which others had given up on.
