Constance Mae Patterson was born December 10, 1943 in Muscatine, a daughter of Wilbur and Florence (Ellis) Patterson. She graduated from Muscatine High School and was united in marriage to John Yoke on May 25, 1963 in Davenport.
Connie cherished the time spent with her family and friends, especially celebrating their birthdays. She was a music lover and you knew she liked a song when she played it repeatedly. She also enjoyed camping and making homemade pancakes.
In earlier years she had worked for the Corps of Engineers, was a department manager at Kmart and she retired from Genesis Health Systems, but she was a devoted mother first and foremost.
Survivors include her children Jody (Peter) Grebner, Bettendorf, Lisa (Russ) Scott, East Moline, Robert (Tracie) Yoke, Cedar Rapids; nine grandchildren; three great grandchildren; siblings Patsy Wellon, Muscatine, Karen (Jim) Diviney, Fairport, IA, Eldon (Nancy) Patterson, Wapello, and her twin Ron (Sherry) Patterson, Davenport.
Her parents, brothers Charlie and Phil Patterson and sisters Donna Smith and Charlotte Fifield, preceded her in death.
