Jan 14, 2014 - Staff

Jennifer Lynn Patterson, of Eaton, Colo., died Wednesday, Jan. 8, 2014, at North Colorado Medical Center in Greeley, Colo., after a brief battle with cancer. She was 28 years old.

Cremation has taken place, and a celebration of life service will be at a later date.

Jennifer Lynn Patterson was born Oct. 17, 1985, in Riverton, the daughter of John and Robin Aamold. She spent her childhood in Riverton, Casper and Worland.

She graduated from the American School in 2004, and then moved to Casper where she married her best friend, Michael Patterson, on July 3, 2006.

Her family said the greatest joy in her life was being a mother to her two children, Brandon Louis and Emily Marie. She enjoyed reading a good book and caring for others, which lead to her career as an emergency room technician and medical transcriptionist. She loved being part of a big family and some of her fondest memories were of times spent with her brother and sisters, laughing and engaging in their greatest shenanigans.

She is survived by her husband, Michael; children Brandon and Emily; parents John and Robin Aamold of Eaton, Colo.; brother Christopher Aamold and his wife Megan and their son Gabriel of Casper; sisters Karissa Aamold and her son Evan of Torrington, Erica Campbell and her husband Nick of Riverton, and Sarah Parsell and her husband Aaron of Greeley, Colo.; grandparents Donald and Dolores Hahn of Riverton and LaVerne Aamold of Mayville, N.D.; numerous uncles and aunts; and the many people whose lives she touched.

She was preceded in death by her grandfather, Charles Aamold.
