On November 27th, Marcelyn was called home by her Lord and Savior; she passed away following a brief battle with COVID and other underlying conditions. Marcelyn was in the comfort of her home surrounded by loved ones at the time of her death.
Marcelyn was the 7th of 12 children. She was born at the Ardiene Foutz home place, and was delivered by Mrs. Ezra Alishouse. Marcelyn lived there until the age of two when her father moved the family to Onalaska, Washington, moving back to Fort Morgan, Colorado in 1947, and then onto the farm south of Akron. She graduated from High Prairie in May of 1954. On June 27, 1954, she married the love of her life John Patterson, and to this union they added three children: Jerry Carl, Lonny J, and Lana Sue. Marcelyn loved spending time bowling, golfing, playing bridge, cheering the Otis Bulldogs, and spoiling the grandkids and great-grandkids. Marcelyn and John were partners in life as well as in business over the years, with their last business venture starting in 1971 with their company C. John Patterson and Sons, Truss and Buildings. Years later, the business name was changed to Sito Building Components where Marcelyn worked until retiring at the age of 80.
