ROCK SPRINGS, WYOMING (April 1, 2020) — Margaret Ann Patterson 55, of Rock Springs Wyoming passed away March 27, 2020.
She was born on May 22, 1964, in Pratt, Kansas, the daughter of Linda June and Robert Patterson.
Margaret was a wonderful, amazing, and giving woman who was loved by all and will be extremely missed. It was often said she had a “heart of gold.” She never met a stranger and welcomed conversation from all. You knew that if she was in your life you were “special.”
She loved her brothers and sisters and her 3 boys, but you could tell her the most prized accomplishment was her grandchildren. She loved her cats “Garfield”, “Boots”, “Dez”, “Tigger” and “Lucky” who no doubt are in heaven by her side. She loved solving puzzles, reading and writing poetry, spending time with family, camping, swimming, fishing, and bowling.
Until we see you again.- ” We love you.”

“I’ll just wait in heaven,
‘Till we meet again.
I know you miss me
Just remember I am free.
God’s love fills each tomorrow.
My love’s in your heart,
We’ll never be apart.
Cherish the love we share,
Remember how much I care.
Someday we’ll be together.
Because love lives together!
So I’ll just wait in heaven,
‘Till we meet again.”
Following cremation, a Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
