Messages for the Family

  1. Susan Thornton says:
    She was one of my favorite teachers at Lebanon High School. She was instrumental in encouraging me to become a better student and digging deeper into the subjects. I truly appreciated being in her class.
  2. Bonnie Fakes says:
    Pat was an extraordinary teacher and a great friend. It was an honor to serve with her in the amazing English Department at LHS. She was also a very good principal!
  3. Betty Fleming says:
    I worked with Pat several years at Board of Education. My only regret now is that I didn’t get back to see her again at her home. She had called me few years ago to say she had something for Sheriff Bryan about his dad that she wanted me to get to him. I certainly enjoyed my visit and she insisted I come back to see her. I promised and now it is too late.

    Ms. Climer was the kindest lady full of grace, humor, and dedication. She loved Lebanon High School and made it a better place every single day. Ms. Climer was so good to our family, always supportive to Ron and so kind to our children.
    I will never forget how thrilled David was when she took him for a ride in her beloved Porsche!
    We thank her for her continued friendship as the years passed. She was always willing to lend a helping hand.
    Prayers for all that loved her and all the lives she affected.
    Much love,

    So very sorry to hear this. Prayers up for all whom loved her… Class of “86”
  8. Sheryl Tippitt-Bates says:
    She was a one of a kind educator and a genuine person. Her grace and integrity was always evident with her ever presence. The educational system has lost a gem that will not be found very often. May she now Rest In Peace with her Lord now from all her goodwill she share and gave to her students, co-workers, friends, family and many , many others that she touched throughout her life. I commend her for a job well done for all who knew her.

    Such an amazing lady. I remember her well as my sophomore English at LHS way back in 1969. It was her first teaching assignment and she was 23. Young and stylish with her blonde bouffant hair and driving her Porsche. She was a tough and effective teacher. She influenced my decision to attend Vanderbilt. When I returned to Lebanon in 2013 I began serving on the newly created Historic Preservation Commission. She nominated me to join the board of Historic Lebanon and I was accepted. I feel blessed to have had her in two different phases of my life at the age of 15 and then at 60. RIP Miss Pat
