IN MEMORIAM: Anne Hyde Choate Patterson

by Jane Ahrens

Anne Hyde Choate Patterson died peacefully in her home in Hobe Sound, FL, on May 11, 2014, at the age of 95. Born in New York to Arthur Osgood Choate and Anne Hyde Clarke Choate, she attended St. Timothy’s School and Columbia University.

She and her husband of 64 years, Ellmore Clark Patterson, who died in 2004, lived in Westchester County, New York City, Fishers Island, NY, and Hobe Sound, and raised five sons, Michael, Arthur, Robert, David and Thomas Patterson, who survive her along with their wives and fourteen grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren, of all of whom she was immensely proud. She will be remembered by her loving family and all who knew her as athletic, spunky, interested and smart, with a quick and challenging mind.

Her family asks that you consider a contribution in her memory to Island Health Project, Fishers Island, Inc., PO Box 344, Fishers Island, NY 06390.
