Parthenia “Pat” Meers, a familiar face at the LaRue County Courthouse for three decades, died Sunday, July 31, after suffering a heart attack.
It was just short of the anniversary (Aug. 1, 1983) she started her career at the courthouse and 364 days since her retirement from the circuit clerk’s office.
Meers, 63, worked as chief deputy, handling juvenile casework. She was friendly, but firm in handling the confidential nature of the court files. It was common to see families asking for her assistance and advice in the office.
