Obituary of Gloria Sheronnah Patterson

Gloria Sheronnah Patterson was born on December 6, 1948 in Vivian, LA and went home to be with the Lord on December 12, 2021 in Roseville, CA at the age of 73 years old. She was the daughter of Clevie Etheridge Pearson and Omega Steed Pearson. She moved to California as an infant with her parents and brothers. She attended Healdsburg High School until she left in 1965 to marry her husband Chuck. She later received her high school diploma and took accounting courses as well. Gloria is survived by her husband, Charles Frederick Patterson Sr, her daughter Shelby (Eric) Baltzley, sons Charles Frederick (Melanie) Patterson Jr and Robert Joseph Patterson and bonus daughter Tanya Marcus. They had 6 grandchildren, Damian (Samantha) Baltzley, Delaney (John) Hutchinson, Morgan (Justice) Patterson, Ethan Patterson, Mason Brown and Harley Patterson, as well as 3 great- grandchildren: Kameron Baltzley, Weston Baltzley and River Bell. She is also survived by many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents, sister Scheovania Larabee, brothers James, Robert and Etheridge Pearson as well as nephews Lenard and Thomas Larabee and niece Diane Pearson Marks. Gloria was a Christian since 1972 and attended Westside Christian Church in Roseville. Until the last few years due to her health, she was very active in church and served in children’s ministries. Gloria joined the workforce in 1981, working as the secretary at Pacific Air in Redding, CA where Chuck was the manager. After moving to the Sacramento area in 1987, she worked as the church secretary at Calvary Baptist Church in Roseville. She left that position to join Chuck in opening a manufacturer’s representative agency in 1991 and they worked together until they retired in 2012. Her greatest joy was in raising her children and playing a big role in the lives of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She also loved her crafting and arts. She loved to quilt and sew clothing and other items and she also loved cross-stitch, needlepoint, knitting and painting. She loved to travel with Chuck – to Mexico, the Caribbean and China as well as most of the US. They also loved camping. Gloria fought Alzheimer’s disease with everything she had. And God gave her (and her family) the greatest gift of knowing us for several weeks before He called her home. She was kind, smart, funny and fiercely loyal and will be missed.
