Penny H. (Mattall) Patterson, RN
Penny was a truly self-less person, always caring for others more than of herself. She touched the hearts and lives of many patients during her long nursing career at EMMC and St Joseph Hospitals and later at Laeger and Currran physician offices.
Penny was born in Waterville, and raised in Millinocket. She was the only child of Robert and Madeline Mattall, who instilled in her special values and nurtured her to become the shining star she was. Penny graduated from St. Martins of Tours High School and St Mary’s School of Nursing in 1968.
Penny was married to Robert K. Patterson in 1969 and they raised one child together in Bangor and Veazie. Robbie was indeed the love of their life and they raised him to become a wonderful, loving son, father, and husband. Later, they moved to Beaver Cove and met many wonderful people, traveled, enjoyed the outdoors and their Tibetan Terriers.
Penny is survived by Bob, her loving husband of 42 years, their son Rob and his wife Stephanie (the daughter we never had) and two grandchildren, Ally and Jake, plus Quigley and Domino her Tibetan Terriers
A Memorial Mass will be held at the Holy Family church in Greenville on Monday January 23, 2012 at 11:00 AM. A graveside service will be held in the spring at the family lot in Willimantic.
