August 12, 1940 ~ May 20, 2022 (age 81)


Patricia Dell Sites, age 81, passed away Friday, May 20, 2022, following a courageous battle with lung cancer. 

Born August 12, 1940, in Sulphur Springs, Ohio to Charles and Hattie (Bell) Newland. She graduated from Shelby Senior High School in 1958 and was an avid Whippet fan. She worked as a beautician, waitress, and at several fast-food establishments. 

On May 14, 1960, Patricia married the love of her life, Roger Leroy Sites, and spent 18 years traveling on Navy tours. She especially enjoyed when he was stationed in Kenitra, Morocco, and Thurso, Scotland. They attended many Navy football games, and looked forward to their yearly spring trip to Key West, Florida. Patricia was a very family-oriented woman. She was always involved in the Newland family reunions; she enjoyed attending, scheduling, and coordinating them. It made her very happy to get all her loved ones together. Patricia will be missed dearly. 

She is survived by her loving husband, Roger, two sons, Gregory S. (Patricia) Sites, and Jeffrey S. (Pamela) Sites; grandchildren Chelsea (Kyle) Cummings, Megan (Justin) Shigley, Rebecca (Kyle Terry) Sites, and Elizabeth (Robert Epp) Sites; two great-grandsons, Weston and Mason Shigley; a brother, Frank (Charlotte) Newland; as well as numerous nephews, nieces, and other relatives.
