Obituary – Dolores “Lori” Jones Patterson
McAllen – Dolores “Lori” Jones Patterson, passed away on Saturday, July 14, 2018, at the age of 67. She was born to parents Ralph and Leona Jones of Mission, Texas, on December 25, 1950, in McAllen, Texas. She grew up the 5th child in a family of seven siblings. She moved with her family to Tampico, Tamps., Mexico, when she was about 10 years old. She became very proficient in the Spanish language, which she used throughout her business and professional life. Early in her career, Lori worked at the San Antonio Produce Market for several years. She came back to the Valley where she started her own produce business working with growers both in the U.S. and Mexico.
Lori was dedicated and survived by her son, Brian Patterson, who was the love of her life. She is survived by her siblings Carol Jones, Robert (Bob) Jones, Susan (Malcolm) Ulcak, Kathleen “Kathy” (Randy) Reavis, Jeffrey “Jeff” (Socorro) Jones, and Thomas “Tom” (Dinorah) Jones. The family would like to thank their cousin, Candice Jones who was more like a sister-since diaper days- and Guadalupe “Lupita” Briseno Selvera who, Lori said, “We are cuatas”. Lupita was a great friend and companion to Lori the latter part of her life.
Visitation will be held Tuesday, July 17, 2018, from 6:30-9 pm with a 7pm rosary at Ric Brown Family Funeral Home in Mission. A funeral mass will be held Wednesday, July 18, 2018, at 10am at Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church in Mission with Father Roy Snipes officiating.
