Elizabeth Patterson April 14, 1930 - June 4, 2017

Liz was born in Oakland, California, on April 14, 1930, to Claude and Elizabeth Chaplin. After high school, Liz went to art school to become a commercial dress designer. While in art school she met and married Jack Keith. They had one child, Elizabeth (Betsy). Two years later, Jack died. She later married Earl Bates.

Liz, Earl, and Betsy moved to Sisters in the late 1970s. Liz dearly loved the big pine trees and mountains. She hiked and cross-country skied the areas around Sisters. Liz's only child, Betsy, died in 1982. Earl died three years later, and her mother died in 1986. She later met Ralph Patterson; they married and loved to travel the United States. Ralph died in 2000.

Liz is survived by her stepsons Dennis and Mike Patterson, and long-time friends Becky Hartford and Judy Stubbs. Liz was a truly amazing "lady." She stayed positive through everything life dealt her. We will miss her forever! Love you, Liz!

There will be a celebration of life at a later date. A heartfelt thank-you to the nurses that cared for Liz, and their caring and compassion to us.
