Carol F. Patterson
December 23, 1932 • December 27, 2016

Carol F. Patterson (nee Albanese), 84, passed away peacefully  Tuesday December 27, 2016 at Abrazo Hospital in Phoenix, AZ.  

Carol was born  December 23, 1932 in Medford, MA. Carol made her way to Seattle and married Kirby "Pat"  Patterson, November 23, 1953. Three children were born into this marriage.

Following her husband's death in 1972, Carol learned how to drive and then relocated with her daughter to Benson, Minnesota in 1974. She worked as a home health aide/companion for many clients in Minneapolis and later in Phoenix, where she had lived since 1995.

Carol is survived by her three children: Jerry (Janet) Patterson of Seattle, Jeff (Cheryl) Patterson of Seattle, and Sheila (Cheryl) Patterson of Cleveland, OH; grandson Garrett (Erin) Patterson and three great-granddaughters all of Seattle. Per Carol's wishes, there will be no funeral service. Her ashes will be interred at Whidbey Island (Seattle). One of Carol's passions was reading, which she enjoyed throughout her life. She (and her late husband) instilled a love of reading in all of their children.

To honor her memory, her family wishes that memorial contributions be made for adult literacy programs via Literacy Volunteers of Maricopa County, Inc., Attn: Accounts Receivable, 729 E.Hatcher Rd, Phoenix AZ 85020.
