Generous Of Heart, Constant In Faith
Patten and Portsmouth, N.H.
- Donna M. Patterson, youngest daughter of the late Ola John and Emma McLaughlin, reunited with her beloved husband and soulmate, Duane H. Patterson Sr. "Bud" (who predeceased her on June 20, 2016) and entered the gates of Heaven to be with her Lord and Savior on Saturday, February 4, 2017.
Through more than 60 years together, their hard work and immense love created a wonderful family, which they both cherished. Donna passed with dignity and grace, surrounded by her "precious treasures". "When The Good Lord is ready to take me, I'm ready to go!" and "I am so blessed!" were often her responses when someone asked, "How are you doing?"
She was a very dear mother (and mother-in-law), grandmother, great-grandmother, sister (and sister-in-law), aunt, cousin and friend to countless people. She will be profoundly missed by those who knew and loved her.
