Patricia May Castle, 75, of Burlington, NC passed away on April 3, 2020 at her residence. Born June 3, 1944 in Miami, Florida, Patricia was the daughter of the late Jack Daniel Castle and Beatrice May Greene Castle. She grew up in a family of circus performers, and her grandmother, Dolly Castle, was one of the first female lion tamers and elephant trainers of her day.
Patricia was a retired and very talented seamstress by trade and was of the Christian faith. She also enjoyed plants, cooking, and most of all, animals. Patricia had a deep love of all animals and raised, trained and showed Collies, West Highland White Terriers, and Himalayan cats in her early days. She was never without a pet at her side, whether it be a dog, cat, or even a bird or squirrel.
She was preceded in death by a son, Richard Hans Rentzsch. She is survived by her daughters, Kristina Rentzsch Barkhouser (James) of North Myrtle Beach, SC and Jolene May Berg Williams (Eric) of Kiln, MS. Her grandchildren are Austin Ryan Spitler (Taren) of Durham, NC; Brianna Spitler Beasley (Cory) of Raleigh, NC; Kelly Alyssa Williams Newman of Kiln, MS; and Mitchell Ian Williams, also of Kiln, MS.
A private memorial service will be held by the family. McClure Funeral Service in Graham, NC is assisting the family. Memorials may be made in her honor to the American Heart Association.
