PATTON—Marian Patton, nee Schweizer, went to have coffee with Jesus on March 14, 2022.  She peacefully passed away at her home in Florence surrounded by her loving family.

Marian, daughter of Fritz Schweizer and Marta Staub, was born January 14, 1928, in Portland, Oregon. She married Clark "Pat" Patton on Oct 19, 1947, in Hillsboro. On Jan. 16, 1974, Pat left his family to set up the heavenly coffee date.

Marian had four daughters. The eldest, Linda Sigler (Larry), passed away in April 2004, leaving twin daughters Jennifer Hoffman (Basil) and Jana Isaacson (Dan) and four great grandchildren: Ollie Hoffman, Owen Hoffman, Nate Guzman and Jacob Isaacson.  Marian also left daughters Kathryn Andrews (Bob) off Arizona, Donna Rhoten (Ken) as well as grandson Scott Rhoten (Catrina), along with their children Lily and Hudson, all in Oregon. She resided with her youngest Susie Pilcher (R.J.) and their daughter Amanda (Sam) for over 27 years. She was preceded in death by grandson Mike Rhoten.

Marian requested that no services be held. The family will hold a celebration of her life in the near future.

At this time, the family would like to thank Cory Gibbens, NP, and the Palliative Care team, Joanie and the Hospice Care Team and Dona, her wonderful caregiver.

Burns's Riverside Chapel Florence Funeral Home is in charge of all arrangements.
