Lorrie Lynn Pat- ten (Wilson, Erb), 49 of Brookings, passed away unexpectedly on March 15, 2019.

Lorrie was born in Fort Morgan, Colorado but raised in Brookings with her family. Throughout Lorrie’s life she lived in Alaska, Hawaii, Montana, California, Texas and Arizona, but she always called Brookings home.

Lorrie loved to craft and create things out of recycled materials. She used pinecones, flowers, sticks, rocks, empty plastic containers and everything in between to create her projects. She always has a project going and loved to include all of the kids and adults in her projects.

Lorrie was crazy, excitable and always on the go. She was always excited about something...didn’t matter if it was a tiny piece of driftwood or a big beautiful sunrise...she got excited and loved to share that excitement with everyone around her.

Lorrie is survived by her sons: Tyler Wilson of Brookings, Cory Wilson (Kess) and her four very beautiful granddaughter: Stella, Berlin, Avalyn and Melody all of Grants Pass. She is also survived by her brother: Keith (Debbie) of her sisters: Junie, Carrie, and Dorrie (Bill). She will be greatly missed by all her nephews, nieces, aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.

Lorrie was preceded in death by her mother and father: Margaret and Keith Patten.

A memorial service and potluck will be held at 2pm on Sat. April 6 at the VFW Hall in Brookings. Bring your favorite food and story or memory of Lorrie and share with us all.
