Patricia Jean Hackett

August 15, 1950 — June 2, 2023


Memorial service for Patricia Jean Hackett, 72, of Gillette, will be held 11:00 a.m., Monday, June 12, 2023 at Walker Funeral Home with Pastor Gordon Harper officiating.  Patricia Jean Hackett, lovingly known as "Pat," passed away on June 2, 2023, at the Legacy Living and Rehabilitation in Gillette. She was born on August 15, 1950, in Council Grove, Kansas. In December of 1955, she was adopted by a loving family: Ira and Mattie (Moon) Taylor and son, Junior in Chanute, Kansas.  As a young girl Pat came to Gillette where she was raised and educated.  She met the love of her life Floyd Hackett and the couple married in 1966 and had 2 beautiful children.

Pat was a thoughtful and caring person. She worked as a youth advocate at the YES House and retired in 2013 after dedicating many years of her life to helping others.  She will be fondly remembered how she was always available for her children and grandchildren. Her kindness and warm-heartedness touched many lives.

When Pat was younger, she enjoyed planting and caring for her garden. She also loved camping, hunting and fishing along with spending time on the boat out at the lake with her family. She was an excellent cook, always creating favorite dishes for her family and friends to enjoy.  One of her favorite pastimes was curling up with a good book.

Pat is survived by her son, Scott Hackett; daughter, Tammi Mundy; grandchildren: Kayla, Jacob, Taylor, Nathan, Vincent; several great-grandchildren and several biological extended family members. Her memories will be cherished by all who knew her. Her legacy will live on through the countless lives she touched during her time with us. 

Pat is preceded in death by her parents: Ira "Mack" and Mattie Taylor and brother Junior Tayor.

In honor of Pat's life and memory, let us take a moment to reflect on all the joy she brought to our lives. We will forever miss you and keep you in our hearts!
