DAMARISCOTTA – Beatrice (Weston) Patterson, 87, of Damariscotta, died peacefully April 21, in the loving care of her children and Cove’s Edge Staff of Damariscotta.

Bea was born in Mexico, on March 31, 1922, the daughter of Frederick and Loretta (Brown) Weston. She was one of 10 children and graduated from Mexico High School in 1941. She was employed by the Diamond Match Co. in Dixfield.

She married Kenneth C. Patterson Sr., April 24, 1942, and moved to Topsham. They later moved to Bath and raised their three children. She was a wonderful homemaker and cook, and briefly worked at Congress Sportswear of Bath.

After the children were grown, Ken and Bea were seasonal campers at Moody’s Island and Townline Campground in Nobleboro for many wonderful fun-filled years. Special friends and bonds were made during those days that have lasted through her life.
