Hazel Annette “Ann” Switzer Patterson, of Woodsfield, Ohio, passed away on Monday, May 22nd, 2023 resting peacefully in the sun surrounded by her family. Born on May 15, 1939, in Lincolnton, GA to the late Robert and Avra Danner. She is preceded in death by her sister Dorothy Love, her daughter Dorothy “Dodie” Switzer, her son Leonard “Arch” Patterson, and her granddaughter Brandi Thompson.
Ann was a devoted mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, aunt, friend, and a loving nurse. She dedicated her life to her family and to providing the best possible care for the elderly. Her gentle bedside manner and her genuine concern for all her patients made her a beloved nurse.
In her free time, she enjoyed her family and close friends, gardening, crocheting, volunteering for the local EMS, watching Survivor and westerns, drinking Pepsi, visiting family in Las Vegas, playing bingo, and trips to Disney.
She is survived by her loving husband of fifty-five years, Paul Patterson; her daughter Christine Shields (Jeff) of Gloucester, VA; her son Max Thompson (Julie) of St. Clairsville, OH; her daughter Sammie Yamagata (Greg) of Las Vegas, NV; her daughter Charity Fato (Bryan) of Wheeling, WV; her brother Ronnie Danner (Lynette) of Spartanburg, SC.; nine grandchildren, twenty-three great grandchildren, two great-great grandchildren; many nieces and nephews; many close friends, with special mention to the Gates, the Gianangelis, and the Browns for their loving support.
We will greatly miss Ann’s presence in our lives, but we take comfort in knowing that her loving spirit will live on through her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.
Rest in peace, you were a shining example of love and kindness. We will always cherish the beautiful memories we shared with you and the impact that you had on the lives of all who knew you.
Friends will be received from 12 noon Tuesday May 30th. until time of funeral service at 1 p.m. Tuesday at the Bauer-Turner Funeral Home Woodsfield, Ohio. She will be entered into rest in the Oaklawn Abbey Woodsfield.
