Elsa N. Patton

Elsa N. Patton, 70, of Kingman, went to be with her Maker on June 5, 2014, at the Joan and Diana Hospice home. She finally lost a long battle with lung cancer.

She was born on Feb. 16, 1944, in the Marshall Islands, Central Pacific Ocean, daughter of the late Jake and Nuka Bulele. She is survived by her husband of nearly 50 years, William Patton, formerly of Pennsylvania; Nancy of Pennsylvania; John of Hawaii; Romita of Phoenix; and Rose of the Marshall Islands.

She had 21 grandchildren, all living. She was preceded in death by her daughter Debra, 46, of Colorado.

She was very active in sports and was an avid bowler and golfer. In addition to raising her children, she jogged and exercised nearly every day before her illness.

She donated her body for scientific study.

A memorial service will be conducted by Father Leonard Walker at the Trinity Episcopal Church at 425 E. Spring St. Kingman; Thursday June 12, 2014 at 5pm.

Friends and relatives are invited to attend.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Elsa's name to the Joan & Diana Hospice Home at 812 Airway Ave., Kingman, AZ 86409.
