Sue Patterson

August 28, 1930 ~ November 2, 2020 (age 90)


Neva "Sue" Patterson, 90, passed away in Duncan, surrounded by her loving family, on November 2, 2020.

Visitation will be on Thursday, November 5, 5:30-7:00 P.M. at Whitt Funeral Home. Funeral services are scheduled for Friday, November 6, at 1:30 PM in the Whitt Funeral Home Chapel with Brother Harold Matheny and Brother Johnny Gray officiating. Burial will follow in the Marlow Cemetery. Arrangements have been entrusted to Whitt Funeral Home in Duncan.

Sue was born on August 28, 1930, to Amos Mitchell and Emma Etta (McCoy) Farmer. She attended school at Bray and lived in Stephens and Jefferson Counties most of her life. Sue married Charles Wayne Patterson in Wichita Falls, Texas on August 18, 1953.

Sue worked as a sales clerk at Gibson's, JC Penney and Bush Oil before opening her own thrift shop in Waurika, Sue's Thrift Shop. Sue would donate carloads of clothing from her store to an Arizona reservation, before retiring in the 1990's after 25 years of ownership. She served as a bail bondsman in Jefferson County for a number of years, but Sue's main job in life was just being a Servant for God as she did on a regular basis. She helped establish and worked as a volunteer for many years at Teen Roundup until unable to do so. Sue took great pride in being a very faithful Christian and was nonjudgmental. She loved her Lord and attended church regularly.

Sue loved her family dearly, making sure that Sunday lunches were always a priority, with everyone welcome. She was a great cook who made the best pies, especially coconut and chocolate.

Sue is survived by a son, Wayne Patterson and wife Joni of Ryan; a daughter, Carolyn Keenan of Duncan; her grandchildren: Rhonda Keenan Pannell, Michael Keenan and wife Mickie, Emma Sparks, Ella Sparks, Christopher Keenan and wife Jessica, Kaylee Keenan, Katlyn Kerr and husband Ryan, Travis Keenan and wife Christy, Kelly Patterson, Cassie Brabec and husband Richard, Jason Hicks and wife Tasha. She is also survived by eleven great grandchildren, four great-great grandchildren, two brothers: Gene Farmer and wife Kay of Village, FL, Lewis Farmer and wife Patsy of Post Falls, ID, and a twin sister, Nita Lou Campbell of Duncan.

Along with her husband, Sue was preceded in death by her parents; her brother, Willard Farmer; two infant great-granddaughters: Adalynn Kerr, Elizeabeth Sparks; and a brother-in-law, Ray Campbell.

The family would like to express a special thanks to Sue's caretakers, Goldie Hemphill, Christian Winder, and hospice nurse, Alayna.
