Faith, Family, Friends. Words which define Patricia, known to all as Anne. Anne Patterson, vibrant and energetic wife, mother, grandmother, and friend to all passed away at her home in Buda, Texas, surrounded by her loving family, on Friday, January 15th, 2021 at the age of 79.
Anne was born in Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria, England to Catherine W. Hogan and Thomas Richard Berwick. On April 1st, 1961 She married the love of her life, Douglas Patterson, a young US Air Force pilot, in Woodbridge, England. As Douglas was a career Air Force man, fate would have them traveling the world together, raising their children and facing life’s trials and tribulations unified as one loving family. Anne always had the ability to create a warm, inviting home within days of each move. She completed her last move in 1986, when they settled in Buda, Texas following Douglas’ retirement. Anne loved to travel and easily made friends everywhere she went. She had a warm smile, a great sense of humor, incredible comic timing and could tell captivating stories which always had a conversational hook. Anne was a voracious Kindle reader, saving the family from moving tons of her books. She enjoyed a good glass of wine, never left a party early and could easily be found in a crowd due to her loud infectious laugh. Anne loved her faith and people. Both of which were almost one in the same to her. She gave much of her time and energy to the community, volunteering at Santa Cruz Catholic Church in Buda, serving as the President of the Altar Society and as a Eucharistic minister. Anne set the standard for being well dressed and put together. Effortlessly elegant, she brought a bit of class wherever she went.
Anne leaves behind so many friends and family whom she made a lasting impact on. She will be eternally missed by her loving dance partner, Douglas Patterson, her devoted children, Mark and his wife Heidi, Gary and his wife Sharon, David and Lisa and her husband Chad. Her humor and generosity will also be missed by her grandchildren, Jessica and her husband Jeremy, Jennifer and her husband Jimmy. Douglas and his wife Zeynep, Natasha, Spencer, Zoe, Ella, and Avery.
