Patti was born on June 9, 1935 in Roosevelt, Oklahoma to William Nelson “Willie” Dunegan and Cue Belle (Freeman). She attended school in Roosevelt and Snyder, graduating with the Class of 1952. At the age of 15, she met Lloyde E. “Buddy” Golden at the drug store where she worked. They married on November 7, 1953, in Wichita Falls, Texas. To this 69-year union two sons were born, Chad Randall and Chet Ray. Patti and Buddy began their life together as a young Air Force family. They moved to El Dorado, Kansas where Buddy worked for a Ford dealership, honing his skills to open a family owned and operated, used automotive dealership in Kansas before relocating to Bowie, Texas. They ran a successful business in Texas before retirement in 2018 when they relocated back to Altus to be near family. Patti was a faithful member of the First Baptist Church in Altus. She enjoyed flying with Buddy and listening to music.
