How Did We Do?

Loraine Patterson, 90, of Port Charlotte Florida, passed away on September 28, 2018.

She was born in Ledyard CT on January 24, 1928 in the farm house where she was raised. She graduated from Fitch High School in Groton where she received many honors for her musical talent. She attended New London Business School after high school.

She was married to Leigh C Patterson from January 24, 1948 until his death in 1991. Together they raised three children.

Loraine worked for the Ledyard School System at Juliet Long School in the 1960's and 1970's as a secretary. She then became a Real Estate Agent for a few years.

Loraine was a talented local musician, from the time she was a child playing accordion and singing with her sister Mildred and brother Emerson. As a teenager she performed in USO shows.

With her husband Leigh they formed a band that came to be known as the New Innkeepers. Loraine played keyboard and sang. They were well known locally and had a regular gig at Lighthouse Inn in New London CT for many years.

When she and Leigh moved to Port Charlotte they played as a duo at local venues in Florida until his death.

For the past 25 years Loraine had been fortunate in love a second time, and had a partner and constant companion, Albert Pichette who survives her. They enjoyed golf, attending local festivals and spending time with family.

She is survived by her three children, Richard Patterson and his wife Terri of Rock Hill, SC, Lori Watrous and her husband Larry of Ballwin MO, and Nancy Patterson of Port Charlotte, FL, six grandchildren and five great grandchildren.

Preceding her in death were her brothers Stanley Whipple and Emerson Whipple, and sisters Mildred Rand and Dorothy Loftus.

Surviving her is her brother Russell Whipple of Groton CT, and Margery Rabon of Gales Ferry In lieu of flowers donations may be made in her name to the American Lung Association. There are no plans for a service at this time.

Dear Rich, Lori, Nancy, Al and family,
We are all saddened by your loss. Aunt Loraine was a beautiful and talented person who will be greatly missed. I will always have fond memories of the impromptu musical jams in your home at Christmas and when Loraine would play piano for me at her home in Florida when I would visit. Many thoughts and prayers are with you now.
