Barbara Diana Patton passed away peacefully in Middletown, Connecticut on February 9, 2024.  She was predeceased by her husband, Gerard B. Patton.

Diane, as she was known to her friends and family, was born in Yonkers, NY on April 29, 1934, to Edward and Gertrude (Odell) Doebler.  She and Jerry were childhood sweethearts, and shared sixty-nine years of marriage before his passing in 2022.  They shared a wonderful life together, full of family, friends, faith and travel.  She had a lifelong love of singing, and of animals.

Diane was predeceased by her older sister Leigh and younger brother George.  She is survived by her daughter Cynthia Vere and her husband Wayne; son Kevin Patton; daughter Susan Fox and her husband Robert; son Kerry Patton and his partner Susan McGuire; and daughter Cheryl Patton.

The truest legacy of Diane’s life is found in the nine grandchildren and ever-growing number of great-grandchildren in whose hearts and memories she lives on.
