July 11, 2023, Patricia “Patty” Elaine Totton, 69, embarked on her next big journey, seen off by those who love her most.
Patricia took immense pride in her life, and rightfully so. She raised a wonderful son, Daniel, whom she was exceedingly proud of. In addition to being a devoted mother, she worked tirelessly for TSD Global for forty years, serving as President and CEO and helping the company establish itself as an international leader in the BPO industry.
Though she valued her privacy and independence, her heart overflowed with compassion and generosity, making her a safe space and confidant to many. She was strong-willed and hard-working. She was a fierce fighter. Patricia embraced every aspect of life. She did everything fully – worked long hours to accommodate international business calls, made far too much food for every family gathering, and never missed a birthday or holiday. She loved her family, her dogs, the beach, true crime television, classic movies, and was a die-hard Colts and Pacers fan. She leaves behind a legacy of love, selflessness, and unconditional support.
Shortly before she passed, Patricia shared the following: “I don’t necessarily think it’s a bad thing to think about death. I see it as an extension of life. Like the next journey, when you look up at the stars at night or the never-ending ocean and know that it’s all infinite. I love life. I love family. But we, all of this, are so much bigger. Our loved ones are here. All the time.”
Patty–While our time on earth is not infinite, our love for you absolutely is.
She is survived by her son Daniel Noble, his father, Jack “Gene” Noble, and her two “girls,” Daisy and Riley (spaniel rescues). Patricia is also survived by her loving sisters Julia (Steve) Lair, Jeanne Bennett, and Lisa Price along with their children – Andrew (Andrea) Lair, David Lair, Jenna (John Andrew) Hess, Adam (Kimoy) Bennett, Joseph Bennett, John Bennett, Jack (Allison) Babcock, Will Babcock, Elle Babcock (John David Eckert), as well as nine treasured great-nieces and nephews. While they will miss her dearly, they take solace in knowing that she is embraced by her mother, Helen Louise Price (néé Meyer), her father, Frank John Price, nephew Erik Charles Bennett, and beloved shih-tzu Bitsy.
A celebration of Patricia’s life will be held on Saturday, August 5, 2023, at Flanner Buchannan (105 W. Pine St., Zionsville, IN). Visitation will be at 3PM followed by a memorial service at 5PM. Friends and family are invited to share fond memories and stories. In memory of Patricia, donations may be made to your preferred animal rescue organization.
