Patricia L. Miron, age 77, went to be home with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on July 22, 2021, at 5:59 am, at Lima Memorial Health System.
Patricia was born on May 23, 1944 in Lima, to John Lentz and Elizabeth (Sneary) Lentz, both of whom preceded her in death. On June 5, 1970 she married her beloved husband, Marcel Miron; who survives in Lima.
She had a deep love and passion for her community. She worked for many years as a drug and alcohol counselor for Tri-star incorporated and The Family Resource Center, as well as proudly serving as a census taker with the US Census Bureau. She was a founder and director of Lima’s Institute of Drug and Alcohol Awareness and she was also involved with The Teen Prevention Task Force; both of which were organized by the Allen County Health Department.With these organizations, she often performed as her clown persona, “Rainbow”; in order to spread joy and awareness. She was very involved with the Allen County D.A.R.E. program as well as the Lima D.A.R.E. program. She was a member of the Lima City School Board and was PTA President at Lima City Schools. She was also a Cub Scouts Pack Leader, Girl Scouts troop leader, and Brownie troop leader in Lima for many years. She was one of the founders of Lima Allen County Neighborhoods In Partnership. She was also president of The Hoover Park Neighborhood Association where she operated many volunteer projects such as The National Night Out with various other neighborhood associations, The Ottawa River Clean Up Project, family picnic events, and community policing, just to name a few. She loved our country, democracy, and was a major supporter of President Donald J. Trump. She was also a Jefferson Award finalist.
She was a big fan of Billy Ray Cyrus, and found great joy listening to his music. She was in a bowling league for many years, and always had a great time going out with her friends. She helped coach her son’s youth boys basketball team, and had a passion for helping her children with their activities. She loved to shop and particularly liked going to Readmore’s Bookstore, where all of the employees knew her well and saw her as family. She enjoyed vacationing in the Smokey Mountains and Pigeon Forge, where people watching was one of her favorite pastimes. She loved to collect, especially when it came to memorabilia related to clowns, bells, and lighthouses. She also had a particular soft spot for strawberries, and enjoyed collecting strawberry themed knick-knacks and attending the Strawberry Festival in Troy. The Allen County Fair was also a yearly pleasure for her and her family. Above all else she loved the Lord and she dearly loved her husband and family. Patricia was an exceptional woman, and will be greatly missed by all those who were fortunate enough to know her.
