Patricia Aumiller Hines was born November 30, 1919 in Crowley, Louisiana and died on May 7th, 2014 at St James Place in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. She lived in Baton Rouge most of her life. Her husband, Robert Hugh Hines Sr., predeceased her as did her parents, Benjamin Frank Aumiller and Inez Whitaker Aumiller. She is survived by her children and their spouses: Merrill Faye Eglin and husband, Bridger; Marilyn Sue Burgess and husband, George; Robert H. Hines Jr. and wife, Janet and William H. Hines and wife, Bunny. In addition, she is survived by grandchildren: Connor B. Eglin, Rachel E. Frazer, William D. Eglin, Ashley B. Lee, Laura B. Balden, Katherine H. Wilson, Sarah H. Shinn, Joseph P. Hines, Courtney P. Armstrong, William H. Hines Jr., Charles A. Hines, Robert P. Hines, and Louise P. Hines. Only two of her seven siblings survive her, Ruth A. Webb and Jack R. Aumiller. She also leaves 22 great grandchildren. In addition to her devotion to God and family, she would want to be remembered as a Sunday School teacher for 40 plus years and a long time school secretary at Highland Elementary. She was a lifelong collector of friends through her church, University United Methodist Church, and various clubs and volunteer organizations including PEO, The Art League, Bridge clubs, University Acres Coffee Club and St. James Place to name but a few. Mother instilled a joy of learning in her family with a particular appreciation for art, music, and nature. She and our father were loyal supporters of LSU and endowed three professorships in the College of Education. The visitation and celebration of her life will be held in the University United Methodist Church Fellowship Hall on Saturday, May 10th, 2014 from 10AM till 12PM with religious services to follow in the sanctuary. She will be buried privately next to her husband in Roselawn Cemetery. The family would like to express our sincere appreciation to all of her physicians, especially, Drs. Eugene Berry, Terry Rehn and Kenneth Civello. The care she received at St. James Place was exemplary, and in her last months she was faithfully attended by Belle, Sherrill, Jackie, Khymburly and Darlene. Nurse Penny Perkins of St. Joseph Hospice was an angel, and we will long remember her compassion and caring.
