JEANETTE WHISNANT PATTERSON - Jeanette Whisnant Patterson, age 93, resident of Kings Mountain, NC passed away April 12, 2012. She was a native of Cleveland Co. NC, daughter of the late Charles and Brownie Hambright Whisnant. In addition to her parents, she was also preceded in death by her husband of 70 years, Gene Patterson, brothers Guinn Whisnant, Wray Whisnant, and Charles A. Whisnant, nephew Michael Whisnant. Jeanette was happiest when she had her hands in the dirt! She loved gardening, especially flower gardening. Yearly, when April came upon the scene-she was in her flower garden which lay directly beside Patterson Road planting and tending her precious treasures of plants and blooms until summer’s end. She artistically used her bounty of her flower garden to create beautiful flower arrangements for her church, for weddings, for social and family gatherings and gifts to friends. Her artistic talents extended beyond the flower garden. She was a painter of nature scenes which have adorned the walls of her family’s homes for many years. Jeanette’s love of nature and her artistic endeavors will be a loving legacy to her family and friends and she will be missed. She was a member of Patterson Grove Baptist Church, Kings Mtn. NC where she served as a Sunday School teacher.
