Margaretha “Sonya” Kurz Patton - 1929-2013

ASHLAND — Margaretha “Sonya” Kurz Patton of Ashland died peacefully at her daughter’s home in Muscantine, Iowa, on Monday, Nov. 12, 2013, following an extended illness.

She was born Oct. 28, 1929, in Innsbruck, Austria.

Sonya was preceded in death by her husband, Joseph Allen Patton; a son, Raymond Patton; and a grandson, Joseph Allen Patton III.

The loving mother and grandmother will be remembered for her love, strength, courage, wisdom, extraordinary talent as a seamstress and homemaker and a love of animals. Sonya loved her animals and her home became a forever home for many, as she seldom had the heart to turn them away.

She is survived by her children, Dr. Susan Coleman and husband Aman of Muscatine, Sonya Berger and husband Charles of Flint, Mich., Patricia Patton Ball of Caddo Mills, Texas, Joseph Patton Jr. of Ashland and Mary Ann Patton of Columbus, Ohio; her grandchildren, David and Michael Forth, Benjamin Coleman, Charles, Alex and Benjamin Berger, Brandon and Jason Wellman and Austin Patton; and five great-grandchildren.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to the American Cancer Society.

A private graveside memorial service will be at a later date.
