She was the third of four children born to Wayne Anderson and Dora May (Goodrich) Anderson. She grew up on a dairy farm east of Ottawa. She attended a one room country school before graduating from Ottawa High School. Throughout her life Jeanie worked in many different roles, she worked as a legal secretary, secretary for Graham's School, and restaurant owner/operator. Jeanie married Jerold Patterson on September 15, 1957 in Ottawa, Kansas. They were blessed with two sons, Jeff and Jere. They farmed north of Mont Ida, Kansas for several years and added PJ's Restaurant in 1973, which they ran for many years. Jeanie also worked with Jerold in their Patterson Farms Trucking business. After they sold their farm and trucking business, Jeanie and Jerold were able to combine work and travel as they delivered new camper trailers to dealers across the United States. Jeanie was a long time member of the Nazarene Church. She will be remembered for her patience. Jeanie enjoyed her children and grandchildren, occasionally spoiling them.
