Sara Cameron Patterson, age 94, died December 24, 2016.
She was born November 5, 1922 in Knoxville, Tennessee to James and Grace Gamble Cameron. She lived in Clearwater and Crystal River, Florida and Maryville, Tennessee. Following her graduation from Maryville College in 1944, Sara traveled by herself to Alaska to work with Civil Service on the Elmendorf Air Force Base. She soon met and fell in love with Captain Vince Ignico and they married in Knoxville in 1945.
She was a lovely and sweet lady who only cared about making her family happy and loved. She is cherished by her four children: Robert (Bob) Ignico and his wife Kathy (AR), Vince Ignico Jr. and his wife Bonnie (FL), Grace Ignico (FL), Arlene Ignico and wife Kathy, (TN). Sara also loved her 6 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren.
She was a voracious reader, world traveler, and successful business woman. Her passion was music and she was an accomplished pianist who loved to play for family, churches and community events well into her nineties.
Friends are invited to join the family in a celebration of Sara's wonderful life on Saturday March 11 at 1:00 p.m. in the Smith Life Center, Maryville, Tennessee. In lieu of flowers, memorial gifts may be made to the Pat Summit Foundation for Alzheimer's Research (520 w. Summit Hill Drive, Suite 1101, Knoxville, TN 37902)
