Pattalee Glass-Koentop "Lady Phoenix"
Truly a First Lady of the Craft
[1943 - 2002]

Obituary by Lady Willow DancingEmber

Pattalee Glass-Koentop, 59, crossed the veil on Monday, November 11, 2002 at 12:45 AM at John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth, Texas.

Pattalee was born in Dumas, Texas on October 27, 1943 to a family of educators. Her father was also a lay minister of the Church of Christ. Pattalee continued in their footsteps as both an educator and a minister. She graduated from UTA with a major in communications and was a certified teacher for life. She was also a Notable Woman of Texas. Her background as an English teacher was evident to her Wiccan students. She expected quality work from herself and from her students, and she accepted nothing less. An accomplished writer, her published works include: "The Magic In Stones" - 1989, "Prosperity Magick" - 1990, "Year of Moons, Season of Trees" - 1991, and "Whispers of Windsong" - 1993. The Ouroborus CD celebrated the poetry contained in "Whispers of Windsong" by using her poems as lyrics.

Pattalee was the first face of Wicca that many people experienced. She was an unofficial media spokesperson, appearing on national television five times. She was often interviewed by local newspapers, radio and television stations. She reached out beyond the Pagan community by conducting seminars for the local police on occult crime, and making training videos on the occult for the Texas State Police.

She was the first Wiccan High Priestesses in the DFW area to carry two traditions. She was an original initiate of the Isian tradition, which began in 1974, when a coven called the Star of the Gold Cross was formed by Margo Dana, a Wiccan High Priestess, and Robert Sy, a ceremonial magician who claimed training in The Foundation, a lodge in Houston. She was also a McFarland Dianic High Priestess, second circle out of Morgan McFarland through Carolyn. Although she passed both traditions on, her heart always belonged to Isis.

Pattalee broke ground both in business and community. She started two retail stores in the DFW area; Flight of the Phoenix and Caravan. She founded "The Cauldron Council" for DFW area Wiccan Elders. She was also one of the founders of CMA, the Council of the Magickal Arts. Finally, she founded Rountree, and through Rountree produced countless events, organizations, and benefits including: Celebration of Womanhood, Celebration of Summer, Celebration of Manhood, The Dallas Witches Ball, the Pen & Quill writers organization, the Annual Leadership Conference, Walk Softly For Mother Earth - an organization to raise funds for a land sanctuary to be used by Wiccans, and The Walk-A-Thon to benefit the Women's Shelter.

She touched so many in the Pagan community. She inspired us to create new organizations and traditions. In conservative North Texas during the time when the Craft was still incredibly secretive, she taught Wicca 101 classes openly. She was a teacher to many high priests and high priestesses in the DFW area and beyond. Flight of the Phoenix was one of the first safe gathering places for Wiccans and Pagans in the area. She hosted "Moon Talks" to encourage students to meet teachers, and to assist other traditions in establishing a name in the area. Most of all, Pattalee was a friend, teacher, and mentor to all of the young witches she met.

She is survived by her son Jon, her daughters Lori and Lana, by many initiated witches, and by of all her "children of the heart."

With all my Love and Respect,

Lady Willow DancingEmber
