Patricia Browning

April 28, 1954 — March 24, 2021

Patricia M. “Trish” Browning, age 66, lifelong New Haven resident, passed on this life, Wednesday, March 24, 2021 at her home surrounded by her loving family.  Trish was born in Carmi, IL on April 28, 1954 to the late Carl and Corean (Ledbetter) Pettyjohn.  Trish was married to Ronnie Browning who preceded her in death.

Trish or “Momma Trish” as many knew her had a personality larger than life, always happy and full of fun.  She enjoyed so much shopping, decorating and baking. Known for her Pumpkin rolls.  Every time someone needed help, she was one of the first ones to stand up.  She loved her children and the children of the neighborhood so much; she always had a house full of kids at her house.  Her contagious smile and laugh will always be remembered.

Trish is survived by her daughters, Carol (Darrin) Upton of New Haven, and Shellie Cannon of Carmi.  Her grandchildren,  Emily Barisano (Hale Rodriguez), Caleb Cannon, Clay Butts, Skyler Barnett, Abbie Crissup, J.J. Krajniak.  Her nephew, Rick Pettyjohn and special friend, April Clifford.  She was preceded in death by her daughter, Kellie Richardson, and a brother, Richard Pettyjohn.
