Lillian Elizabeth Patterson
December 1, 2014 ~ June 29, 2023 (age 8) 8 Years Old
Lillian Elizabeth Patterson was born December 1, 2014 in Dallas, Texas, the daughter of Britt and Bethany Patterson.
Lillian was larger than life. She loved animals, especially her dogs, Hei Hei and Dobby. Lillian was a member of the Arkansas Hare Scramble Championship Series. She loved to race and her racing family. She was an unstoppable force on the track. Lillian was a two-time Pee-Wee Champion and received the Iron Man award in 2022. She was on target to be the kid’s champion, receive the Iron Man award, and place 3rd in the Women’s overall division for the 2023 season. Lillian was affiliated with Trinity Baptist Church in Idabel and attended Denison Elementary. Lillian was fearless, brave, kind, smart, and loved by everyone who had the honor and privilege of knowing her. She had a big, fun personality, loved to play pranks, and always made us laugh. She loved to be outside, sing, and dance, but her favorite thing to do was to spend time with and play with her momma who was her best friend. She was her Momma’s and Daddy’s world. To know Lillian was to love her. Lillian will be missed more than we can say.
Lillian passed away June 29, 2023 in Dallas, Texas. She is survived by her parents, Britt and Bethany Patterson; special sister, Gracie Alford; grandparents, Ricky and Debbie Alford, Wade and Vickie Patterson, Carolyn Patterson, Bob and Chris Jensen; great-grandparents, Jim and Sally Tunnell, Pat and June Patterson; aunts and uncles, Clay and Lori Alford, Gabe and Sarah Morse, Seth Patterson, Kady Pieratt, Makynlee “Auntie Mak” Young, Todd and Mysti Creacy, Greg and Jamie Creacy, Cindy Woods; special cousins, Kayla and Jon Mitchell, Alyssa, Kensley, Isabelle, Ava, Olivia, Ella, Kora; and numerous other cousins, relatives, and friends.
