Dorothy L. Patterson, age 94, formerly of Stratford and recently of Shelton, passed peacefully the
afternoon of Monday, July 25, 2022. Dorothy was a woman of faith who regularly attended church,
carried her bible with her and loved spending time at the Black Rock Church Senior Club. Dorothy
enjoyed walks at Short Beach and Seaside Park and was very fond of animals. She loved eating out and
reading magazines especially articles about the financial markets and investments. Dorothy was a great
note taker and worked as an executive assistant for various companies. Dorothy loved filling her
