Jeana Marie Patterson

February 9, 1967 - October 30, 2017
Born in San Francisco, California
Resided in Anchorage, Alaska


Jeana Marie Patterson, age 50, passed away at her home in Anchorage on Monday, October 30th, 2017, in the loving company of her mother and daughter after a two-year battle with cancer.

She was born in San Francisco, CA on February 9th, 1967, and adopted by Judy Lou (Rice) Meier and Lane G. Rice. She was a 1985 graduate of Dimond High School. She married Walter Patterson III on June 19th, 1992, and had her daughter later that year. She spent much of her 20’s and 30’s as a participant in the Society for Creative Anachronism, and followed her heart where it loved music and lead her to concerts in the lower 48.

Jeana was always a woman with huge heart, who loved with all of her being, who was soft around the edges and adored all things cute and fluffy, but stood and fought fiercely for those she held dear. A kind friend, mother, and daughter, but sarcastic in all the best ways with a passion for music and history.

She is survived by her mother, Judy Lou Meier, her daughter, Christa Rhiannon Patterson, her newfound biological father and his wife, newfound brother on her biological mother’s side, and too many extended family to conceivably list.

Per her request, there will not be a service. She only ask that you donate to a women’s shelter, an organization for animals, or to cancer research. Everyone shines, but there are some who are brighter than everyone else in the room. She was blinding.
