1976 - 2017 Obituary Condolences
LAURA PATTERSON Laura Jean Patterson, age 40, of Henderson, passed away tragically Jan. 11, 2017. Laura was born April 15, 1976, at Paramount General Hospital, in Long Beach, Calif. Her family moved to Henderson, later settling in Boulder City, where Laura and her twin sister, Debbie, spent their childhood. Laura grew up hiking and exploring the desert mountains near her family's home. She attended Boulder City High School and the College of Southern Nevada. Laura had a sharp wit and an incredible sense of humor, a kind heart and an honesty that was unique to only her. She has left behind an enormous extended family that all loved her very much as well as a network of friends who's lives will never be the same having known her. Laura was one of the funniest people many of us have ever, or will ever, meet in our lives. Her independent spirit lead her to many great successes in life, but of all of Laura's accomplishments, the thing she was most proud of, above all, was her son, Carson. Laura is survived by her mother, Sherri Gajewski (nee Rittenbaugh); her father and stepmother, Timothy and Amy Patterson; her sister, Debra Lynn Patterson; half-sister, Codie Patterson; half-brother, Shane Patterson; and her incredible son, Carson Riley Colburn. There will be in "Irish Wake" Saturday, Jan. 28, in Boulder City to celebrate her life. To donate, please visit gofundme.com Laura Patterson Memorial.
