March 8, 1952 - December 27, 2018

Her family by her side, Glenn Ann passed away peacefully after a courageous battle with cancer.  Her final wish was granted as she was able to spend one last Christmas with her family.

Born in Eston, Saskatchewan, she was raised across Canada as the family followed her father along the rails as a CNR Station Agent.  She attended high school in Melfort, Saskatchewan where she met and married Neil Patterson.  Together they moved and settled in Edmonton where they raised their two children.  Once her kids were in school, her career began with the Edmonton Catholic School District filling many roles including her favorite, a science laboratory technician.

Glenn Ann was predeceased by her parents Patrick and Nancy Dooley and younger sister Aileen Dooley.  She will be remembered with love by her sister Maureen Dooley, daughter Denise Hildebrand, son Jeffery Patterson and his wife Krista, and her 5 grandchildren Taylor, Benjamin and Alexis Hildebrand and Rory and Keir Patterson.  She will also be fondly remembered by her many friends, all those she worked with and the students at Mother Margaret Mary, Austin O’Brien and Holy Trinity Catholic high schools.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Glenn Ann Patterson Scholarship Fund c/o Mother Margaret Mary High School.

  1. I am so heartbroken to see just now, that this sweet woman has left us. I worked with her for 3 years. I would often take a detour past her lab, where she was usually organizing teacher materials for the day. I would poke my head in and she always gave me a “hello” and a warm smile. I really loved that about her. Just those little brief connections, made a beautiful impact on me each workday. God bless.

  2. Glenn Anne, you were one of the best. We had years together at Austin O’Brien as one of the 3 Musketeers of the 2nd floor, along with Rosemarie. We looked out for each other, helped each other, and generally ran our own show. After retirement we continued to meet for coffee. I will always treasure your down to earth focus, your humour, and your oft unspoken but always felt love for friends.

  3. Our heartfelt condolences go out to the Patterson family. No words can describe how sorry we are for your loss. Glenn Ann was a wonderful person. God Bless.

  4. To the Patterson family

    I am sad to hear the passing of Glenn Ann.

    I have some warm memories of my two children starting school with
    Denise and Jeff. The 2 winters Glenn Ann and I taking the kids to swimmming lessons as well as the few years of community soccer. I always enjoyed my time with Glenn Ann either at school events or community sports.

    My warm thoughts are with everyone at this very sad time.

  5. Remembering your wonderful mother and wishing you comfort. We wish to send our heartfelt sympathy. Our families shared a long friendship and Glenn Ann was a warm, loving, wonderful friend to us. We are saddened for your loss and will remember her and all the happy times we shared together. Our warm thoughts and prayers in the days ahead.
    Love Brian, Gail and Steve Amyotte

  6. To Jeff and your Family
    So very sorry to hear about your Mom. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this most difficult time.

  7. Denise, Jeff and families. Ray and I are so saddened by the loss of your mom. She and I have been friends since she first moved to Sioux when we were in Grade 6! Our friendship together solved a lot of world problems, children’s issues and the likes usually over a cup of coffee on a long distance call. I will miss that for sure. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all at this time. Ray and Trisha

  8. Denise, Jeff and family. I had the pleasure of working with your mom at MMM for the past few years in the chem lab. She always spoke of her love of family. She was my rock at school and it isn’t the same without her. My heart weeps for you, who were her true treasures. God Bless. Marielle Poulin

  9. My sincere sympathy Denise, Taylor, Benjamin & Alexis and Jeff, Krista, Rory & Keir. You will miss your precious Mom/Grandma so very much. And Maureen, your sister was a treasure; you know that and will miss her greatly but she will always remain in your heart.

    It has been said that we are formed into the people we are going to be by the age of 6. I particularly believe that to be true with the life-long friendship that I have had with Glenn Ann.

    We met when we were 8 years old in Allan, SK. It was very easy to become friends with Glenn Ann Dooley! The person that you know as an adult and as a teacher is the same little girl that I remember: kind, thoughtful, caring, loyal, intelligent, determined, confident, practical, straightforward, and possessing a big heart.

    Our lives have been made richer for having known Glenn Ann and she will always be remembered with love in our hearts and smiles on our faces.

  10. Denise, Jeff and Families: We are taking the time to remember your mother as we write this condolence. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. Dennis & Wendy Paddock, Brett & Chrystal Paddock & Family, Jared & Jeanelle Paddock & Family.

  11. Dearest Maureen, Denise, Jeff and family
    Thoughts and memories of Glenn Ann take me back to Allan Sk where we first met. I had the wonderful opportunity of visiting with Glenn Ann just a short time ago . I admired her strength, her warm and caring personality, her love for her sister Maureen, her children and grandchildren. My heart goes out to you all with sincerest sympathy. She will be deeply missed. Love and prayers.
