Marie Louise (Patton) Pastor

Marie Louise (Patton) Pastor, of Elizabeth City, born February 13, 1927, died March 18, 2019 in a skilled nursing facility where she had resided since 2012.  Born in Tazewell County, Virginia, she was the daughter of the late Ballard C. and Ethel M. Patton. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by one son, James G. Stegman; sisters Johnnie Agnes Patton, Edna Patton Maggard and brothers Robert C. Patton and Charles J. Patton.

She was widowed in May of 1989, when she lost her beloved husband, Massey R. Pastor, with whom she had lived for many years, first in Baltimore, MD and then in Elizabeth City, NC.  Marie was a small business owner and a real estate agent and kept herself busy with these pursuits in NC.  After her husband’s passing, she eventually moved back to Pounding Mill, VA, in part to help care for her sister, Edna.  However, in 2008, at the urging of her devoted son and daughter, survivors Robert K. Stegman and Phyllis Stegman Berkey (husband William), Marie moved back to MD where she lived in Edgewood, until her health required supervised living, which was arranged for in Elizabeth City, NC by her stepdaughters Maxine I. Rossman and Victoria P. Long, who continued to oversee her long-term care and provision.

She is also survived by two sisters Pauline E. Patton German (widow of Buck) of Arnold, MD and Lorraine Patton Robinson (husband Dean) of Marion, VA; and sister-in-law Pearl Patton (widow of Charles) and numerous grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Details of a memorial service being planned by her family will be released when received.  Condolences to the family may be expressed via the online register at www.gallopfuneralservices.com. Gallop Funeral Services, Inc. was entrusted with arrangements.
