Dr. Patsy Agee enjoyed 40 years of service in the vocational education system for the State of Florida. She served as a teacher, supervisor, and administrator, as well as a private consultant working with school districts and colleges to perform evaluations. After the death of her husband, Patsy moved to Orange Park, Fl. in order to be closer to family. That process included her joining the Orange Park United Methodist Church and meeting many wonderful people. Among that group were Herb and Charlene Ellerbe. Life took an interesting turn and Patsy became a resident of Lake Ridge South which is the area in which Herb & Charlene lived. Because of God’s intervention, Herb & Charlene provided Patsy with valuable information concerning a residence that became available just across the street from their home. This was important because Patsy was in need of a place to live. As they became better friends, Patsy learned that Herb had once been a distributor for the Gideon Bibles. Because of her many travels as a state education employee, Patsy knew how important those Bibles could be to a weary traveler. Sadly for us all, the Cancer had entered in to Herbs body for a 2nd time, and Herb left to enjoy paradise with our Lord. Within the next year, the youth director at the church gave a talk to the women’s circle Charlene & Patsy attended. He told of the need for Bibles to use with the youth at Orange Park United Methodist Church. In Patsy’s words, the Lord spoke to her with great force and told her to fulfill that need. She remembered the work Herb had done for the Gideon Bible effort and decided to provide the Bibles in his name. Each Bible was stamped to remind the youth that Herb Ellerbe’s memory was being honored. For her constant support and help throughout Herb’s transition, please join me in congratulating Dr. Patsy Agee on being a Herbies Hero.
