Obituary

Loraine Patterson was called home to be with our Lord Jesus Christ eternally on Sunday, May 16, 2021.

Loraine was born on February 7, 1950 to the late Jerome and Theresa (Larson) Surretsky, and resided in Edison NJ.

She attended John P. Stevens High school and graduated in 1968. She received her Bachelors egree from Glassboro State College in 1972. After graduation, she became a teacher for a stint. Then Loraine served as a Claims Agent at the Social Security Administration for 34 years before retiring.

After her marriage to Donald Patterson in 1974, she resided in Somerset, N.J. where she enjoyed her married home life, extensive family, friends, and neighbors. Traveling was a passion and she felt very blessed to have been to 16 countries. She was very happy to have traveled to the countries where her grandparents were from; Ireland, Russia and Denmark. She also traveled to Luxembourg where her husband’s family was from.

Loraine loved Broadway and 60’s music. She had an unwavering faith in God. She was an active member of many senior citizen groups and spent a significant amount of time volunteering for many local causes. She passed away from this world with the gift of having experienced a very full and happy life, spreading joy and unconditional love to all who were blessed to know her. She was a humble, sweet, nonjudgmental, virtuous soul and words cannot express how deeply she will be missed.

She was preceded in death by her husband Donald Patterson and her sister Elaine Surretsky.

She is survived by her sister, Sherry Grimes; and brothers, Jeffrey Surretsky, Gary Surretsky, and Larry Surretsky.

She is also survived by her brothers-in-law, James Grimes, John Gallinot, Jack Lutz; and sisters-in-law, Christina Surretsky, Sandy Surretsky, Debbie Surretsky, Amy Petrie, Janice Gallinot, Patricia Patterson, and Laurie Lutz.

She is also survived by her nieces, Meghan Grimes, Ryane Grimes, Angela Surretsky, Jennifer Sumlin, Elise Goldman, Lauren Shern and her nephews Eric Surrestky, Evan Surretsky, Luke Surretsky, Mark Surretsky, JP Grimes, Patrick Grimes, Daniel Lutz, and David Thornburg.

She is also survived by her great nieces Lauren Surretsky, Anna Surretsky, Aliyah Sumlin, Avery Goldman, Elliott Shern; her great nephews Hunter Thornburg, Hatcher Thornburg; and her grand-nephew, Jaxon Gill.

Family and friends may visit on Sunday, May 23, from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM at the Gleason Funeral Home, 1360 Hamilton Street, Somerset, NJ 08873. A memorial service will follow at 5:00 PM.
