Lt. Governor Dan Patrick's mother, Vilma Jean Goeb, passes away

Lt. Governor Dan Patrick's mother, Vilma Jean Goeb, passed away. She was 90 years old. 

The following statement was released by Dan Patrick. 

The loss of one's mother isn't something you can ever be fully prepared for. But she was prepared. She knew the Lord and He knew her. She is surrounded by a host of angels, in the presence of Christ, and reunited in heaven with my father Charles. I am humbled and honored by the many condolences and outpouring of support for my family and me. My mother was an amazing Christian woman who lived a rich and full life. Her 90 years on this earth were a blessing to many.

There will be a private service for the family and their close friends in Houston on Friday.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Be an Angel.
