Mildred Irene (Millie) Patterson. Born in Ashland City, TN to Nelson and Willie Maud Johnson on August 19, 1918. Passed into the loving arms of the Lord on April 9, 2018. She was just 4 months shy of her 100th birthday. She was preceded in death by her husband Donald C. Patterson, Sr. She is survived by her loving family, Sons Don C. Patterson, Jr. and Michael D. Patterson, and daughter Delores Ballard and husband Joe B. Ballard. She is also survived by 4 grandchildren, David Ballard, Justin Ballard and wife Alicia Svrcek, Michael Patterson and Donnie Patterson. Also, 5 great grandchildren, Bailey Ballard, Luke Ballard, Joe G. Ballard, Maura Ballard and Ellie Bleu Ballard. She is also survived by her loving sister, Elsie Lou Baxter of Joelton, TN and several nieces and nephews also in Tennessee and Georgia. She was loved by all and known as Granny or Aunt Mildred. Millie worked all her life and didn’t retire until she was 92 when she finally said she thought she was old enough to retire. She loved her God, her family, her church and her friends. She was loved in return by all and known as a sweet, kind and generous person. She lived in her own house for 60 years and took care of herself and her house, cooking and cleaning and still driving until she was 97. She hated to give up driving and the independence it gave her but her health had begun to diminish and she thought it was time. She will be missed by all who knew her but is now in the Heavenly Home she longed for.

Millie was one of the sweetest persons I have had the honor to meet. One of my fondest memories of Millie was when she would call the shop (Shopco Mfg) sometimes she couldn't tell the difference between my voice and Delores. So she would ask is this you Sharon? It was a blessing to have known her.
