More Info

The Patterson/Hamilton Family and her church family has continue on their sister/mother's and faithful church member (Pat H. Patterson's)  Legacy for her love of education and her work and message that was unfinished to continue to be successful in what ever it is that you want to do in life.

They(Jerrita/Arcola/Mike/Greg/Juanita) her(Pat's) church family have started a Book Scholarship Fund in her name to continue the path and message about education that she(Pat) was very, very extremely serious about as well as reading to be able to impact your mind with knowledge. She believe that education is the way to have a voice to knowledge your opinion on whatever is that anyone wanted to speak on or pass a message about.  Pat did her body of work through her community and her church and any organization that she could be part of.

She (Pat) was the Queen Bee  of the Red Hatters in her area, as well as she was a girl scout troop leader that she was very serious about when it came to impacting their minds when it comes to education and life. She formed dance groups for the seniors and they dance all over the country.

Pat was about getting her message across in some way rather it was signing people up for stuff they didn't know about lol or just showing up and showing out in a ball of laughter, dance or fun and packing a party with a powerful punch, no matter where she was she made sure that if the topic of someone about to graduate from high school came up it was a cue for her to speak about education and what it means, or if someone wanted to move further in life she always had time to give you advice and once you got it, you keep it and used it.

This is what Pat's life and legacy was and is all about and because she was big on education this is why this seem fit to do so to keep a woman of life/love/laughter/ dance/ the love of God and the love of education in the minds and hearts of those who she loved touched and cherished.

So if you can donate not asking for much and know that what you donate will go to impacting the minds of knowledge and success for children of our further.

Upon Donating you will receive a copy of the commemorative of one of Pat's favorites as she would say "that's my song" "Happy" video from Pat's life celebration. Thank you and God Bless you all.

The path to success is the power of education.

The Pat H. Patterson Book Scholarship Fund will provide just that.   If you knew Pat H. Patterson you knew she always had a smile on her face and dance in her step. Also if you knew her you knew she wasn't a stranger to nobody that she ever meet, she was full of love, laughter, ambition, drive, the love of God and a ball of life  and the life of any party invited or not that's how she was and you knew from first glance.

But most of all when Pat wasn't leaving her mark of fun and laughter, she was teaching and giving back to her community and serving her church on the things she was taught as a child and the most that she ever talked about was education, education, education. She(Pat) was about her love for education and what it means to be successful in whatever it is that you want to do.

Not only was she a mother of two beautiful young talented women Jerrita  Patterson and Acrola Patterson Scruggs, a wonderful grandmother  to her granddaughter Brooklyn Scruggs that is just as full of life like she was(Pat), the best mother in law to her loving son in law Micheal Scruggs, but she was also a loving, caring, supportive sister to her brothers and sister, Mike Hamilton, Greg Hamilton and Juanita Matthews as well as her nephews and other family members.   

In November 2015 when she (Pat)found out she was diagnosis with pancreatic cancer she never stop fighting the fight to educate and dance and serve the Lord with her community and continue to help when she could,  although this disease was attacking her body, she still made time to educate her girl scout troop and other children in her church community and all over the Nashville area and made sure that they keep their mind and their priorities on their schooling.

She did this until the light in her joy couldn’t continue what she loved so dear to her heart and that was to spread love, education, the word of god and the POWER of dance no matter the age.

On February 1 2016, God called our beloved full of life cousin/sister/ mother / home to work in the new world. So her two daughters, granddaughter, sister and brothers and church community/ family have open up this scholarship fund in her name to continue on the work that she (Pat) started to further the minds of those who are hungry for success and education to show that no matter the circumstances you can do all things when you apply yourself and have God in your life.

We the family, community and church family of  the late Pat H. Patterson would love for you to help us keep Pat’s love of education and legacy going with the work that she loved doing until her transition into the new world and will continue in the hearts and minds that she touched.  God Bless you all and as Pat would say “Good Beautiful Beautiful Day/Morning and Night”!
