Peggy Ann (Skelton) Patterson, age 77, of Hoover, Alabama gained her angel wings on October 23, 2020. She was a dedicated and loving wife, mother, sister, and grandmother whose life was taken too soon in an accident.
A lifelong Bluff Park resident, she began her working life at Elmore’s followed by Loveman’s in Birmingham where she ultimately met her late husband Floyd L. Patterson, Jr. (Pat). She later spent years teaching of God’s love at Shades Crest Baptist Church to countless children. She devoted her life to her children and grandchildren and was considered a mother or MawMaw to many more. She was the ultimate caregiver who put everyone before herself. She enjoyed her Diet Coke, flowers, Elvis, and laughing with her husband. You could often find her watching I Love Lucy, Hallmark, or Wheel Of Fortune. She will forever be remembered for her love, patience, grace, and on occasion stubbornness. She always had time for her grandchildren and leaves behind beautiful memories.
She is loved by her children, Tammy Duren and Debby (Scott) Forester; four grandchildren, Casper Duren, Arianna Elaine Duren, Haley Forester, and Holly Forester; sister, Shirley (Phillip) Vines; brothers, Randy (Elizabeth), and James (Frances) Skelton. Loved dearly by many nieces and nephews as well.
She is preceded in death by her husband of 53 years Floyd Patterson who recently received his wings on 7/31/20; parents, James Skelton and Ben Ella Cowart Skelton, and brother, Raymond Skelton.
Visitation will be held in the Reception Room at the Riverchase Church of Christ in Hoover, AL 10/29/20 1:30 – 3:30 PM. Entrance is in the back of the church.
She will be laid to rest the following day 10/30/20 at the National Cemetery at 11:00 AM.
