Sybil Patterson 1920 ~ 2010 Sybil Patterson, devoted grandmother, great-grandmother, mother and friend. Sybil, at the age of 90, died peacefully Monday morning Sept. 13, 2010 of natural causes. Sybil was born on May 24, 1920 in Salt Lake City to Acton and Ivy Naylor Rodwell. She married Gale H. Patterson July 20, 1945.

Later the family moved to Denver where she worked for the Colorado DMV, returning to Holladay in 1969. Sybil was a lifelong Presbyterian and a proud member of Mt. Olympus Presbyterian Church since 1971. She was witty, the strength of the family, always kept us laughing and in line, a keen Democrat and at all times the life of the party.
