Ida Clements Patterson

     Ida Lee Clements Patterson, 86, a longtime resident of Scottsville and devoted wife and mother, died Thursday, June 13, 2019 in Charlottesville after an extended illness.

     She was born on June 2, 1933 in the Warminster area of Nelson County, a daughter of the late Leslie Edward and Elizabeth Ann Ragland Clements. Ida was a child of the Great Depression, and valued the things that endure more than wealth and material possessions: church, family, loyal friends, a strong community – and a good sale at Belk.

     A solid student, she graduated from Scottsville High School in 1951, and a year later married her high school sweetheart, Charlie Walker Patterson, who less than six months later was deployed to serve in the far-off Korean War. Upon his return, they built a modest home on James River Road in Scottsville, surrounded by 21 acres of what would become a pine tree farm. They filled their home with two children: a son, Michael, and a daughter, Lisa. Ida raised the children and ran the household while Charlie worked for the Chesapeake & Ohio Railroad.

     Outside of the home, Ida’s affiliations reflected her involvement in the community. She was a member of Scottsville United Methodist Church; the Order of the Eastern Star, James River Chapter No. 122; and the Scottsville Parent Teachers Association (where she served as Treasurer). She was also a Teacher’s Aide at Scottsville and Yancey Elementary Schools.

     Later in life, Ida joined the Scottsville Senior Center, and enjoyed taking bus trips around the country. She was a regular at Lumpkin’s Restaurant and enjoyed puzzles, reading and many forms of needlework.

     Ida was predeceased by her parents, her husband, and her lone sibling: Annie C. Melton.

     Survivors include her son: Michael Eugene Patterson, and his wife, Elizabeth; her daughter: Lisa Patterson Heuchert, and her husband, Daniel, all of Charlottesville; grandchildren: Erin Patterson Thelen of Charlottesville, Carly Patterson Lundgren of Charlottesville, Abigail Patterson of Olney, Maryland, Samuel Patterson of Stuarts Draft, Caroline Patterson of Charlottesville, Michelle Heuchert of Kuwait, Jonathan Heuchert of Richmond, Mariel Andersen of College Park, Maryland, and Edward Andersen of Barboursville; great-grandchildren: Atlee and Tenley Lundgren; and a niece: Pamela Melton Kahle of Fredericksburg.

     As Charlie was one of 12 children, she was also predeceased and survived by numerous brothers and sisters-in-law, as well as many nieces and nephews.

     The family wishes to thank the staff of Commonwealth Senior Living and Hospice of the Piedmont for their steady, compassionate care for Ida.

     A funeral service will be conducted at 3:00 pm, Sunday, June 16, 2019 at Thacker Brothers Scottsville Funeral Home by the Reverend Brian C. Lamb.  Interment will follow in the Scottsville Cemetery.

     The family will receive friends beginning at 2:00 pm until service time at the funeral home.

     In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations be made to Scottsville United Methodist Church, PO Box 280, Scottsville VA 24590; or the Alzheimer’s Association of Central and Western Virginia: 355 Rio Road West, Charlottesville, VA 22901.

Mike and Lisa,

Tom and I think of your mother often. In fact, at Christmas my daughter and I worked one of Ida's many puzzles. The girls remembered her from days as a teacher's assistant at Scottsville Elementary School. We are remembering her in our prayers. She and your dad hold a special place in our hearts.

Chris and Tracy Morris
