Patsy Marie (Adams) Bolt, 81, passed away peace­fully on Fe­bru­ary 3, 2020, at Care Di­men­sions Hos­pice House in Lin­coln, Mas­sachusetts. Patsy was born in Clin­ton, North Carolina, to Noble Ch­ester and Myr­tie Mae (Jack­son) Adams. She be­longed to

White Oak Bap­tist Church and grad­u­ated from Rose­boro High School. She at­tended Woman’s Col­lege of the Univer­sity of North Carolina. As a long-time res­i­dent of Durham, Patsy worked at the Univer­sity of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and later at Duke Univer­sity, where she re­tired as Ex­ec­u­tive As­sis­tant to the then-Chair of the Duke Eye Cen­ter. Patsy is sur­vived by her beloved daugh­ters Lau­rie War­rick-Her­man of Michi­gan, Amy (Jeff) Wal­lace of North Carolina, and Elaine (Rob) Shea of Mas­sachusetts; step­daugh­ter Marla (Jeff) We­in­grad of North Carolina; sis­ters-in-law He­len and Judy; and many trea­sured nieces and neph­ews. She also leaves be­hind six pre­cious grand­chil­dren: Matthew, An­drew, Molly, Emily, Cole, and Jack­son. In ad­di­tion to her par­ents, Patsy was pre­de­ceased by her hus­band of 29 years, Mur­ray Harold Bolt, and sib­lings Mable, Don­nie, Flora, Ash­ley, Joe, Betty, Faye, NC, and Kirtz. Upon Mur­ray’s death, she re­turned to Mas­sachusetts where they once lived. Patsy was one of a kind. She was smart, fun lov­ing, and en­joyed pur­su­ing ex­pe­ri­ences and learn­ing new things. She was a woman of great faith and a loyal and ded­i­cated friend. She liked spir­ited con­ver­sa­tion, travel, gar­den­ing, mu­sic, danc­ing, per­form­ing arts, UNC Tarheels, New Eng­land Pa­tri­ots, and spend­ing time with her grand­chil­dren. Patsy was un­de­ni­ably the thread that held her fam­ily to­gether. Her son-in-law, Rob, had a par­tic­u­larly spe­cial place in her heart. The world is a lot less sparkly without Patsy. A pri­vate me­mo­rial will be held in North Carolina at a later date. The fam­ily wel­comes do­na­tions in honor of Patsy to the Alzheimer’s As­so­ci­a­tion (alz. org). Heart­felt thanks to Ron­nie Moura, Di­rec­tor of Well­spring Vil­lage at Brightview Se­nior Liv­ing in Can­ton, Mas­sachusetts, and all the staff for their care and sup­port of Patsy and her fam­ily.
