Mildred Alice Patterson

April 12, 1930 — January 9, 2023

Mildred Alice Lockhart Patterson, 92, of Benton, departed this life peacefully on January 9, 2023, at the family residence.

She was born on April 12, 1930, in Etowah, Tennessee to the late Tom and Liza Stewart Lockhart.

Throughout life, Ms. Mildred loved her family with her entire heart, and was truly thankful for the many memories that shared together.  She was a member of Welcome Valley Baptist Church and enjoyed canning and cooking for her family.  A few of her fondest memories included patronizing at yard sales and being a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother.  Loved by all who had the privilege of knowing her, she will be deeply missed until we meet again.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded by her beloved husband, R.A. Patterson; siblings, Virginia (Cruiser) Smith, Beulah (Paul) Melton, Edith (Robert) Pangle, Lillian (Buck) Watson, and Pauline (Paul) Casteel; one great-great granddaughter, Amelia Jean Killian.

Left to cherish the many memories include her beloved children, Patsy (Ray) Peels, DeWayne (Kim) Patterson, Doyle Patterson, and Ronnie (Connie) Patterson; cherished grandchildren, Kecia (Matthew) Killian, Scott Moody and fiancé, Sara MacPherson, and Jamie (Jeri Ann) Moody.  Several great-grandchildren, great-great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, cousins, and a host of friends also survive.

A Celebration of Life service will be conducted at 1:00 p.m. on Friday, January 13, 2023, in the chapel of Higgins Funeral Home, with Pastor Terry Webb officiating.  Interment will follow at Delano Cemetery with Billy Ray Howard, Ray Peels, Troy Shelton, Jamie Moody, Matthew Killian, Ronnie Patterson, Ricky Creekmore, and Scott Moody serving as pallbearers.

Family and friends will gather from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on Friday, prior to the service at the funeral home.
