Ms. Patterson, who lived in the Philadelphia area, died at the age of 100 on Nov. 4th. She was in the first performance of "Serenade" at the Warburg estate in Westchester.

She was an approximate mix, Carey wrote, of "the regal bearing of actress Helen Mirren, the mordant wit of Dorothy Parker, the lust for adventure of Amelia Earhart, the cultured intellect of Susan Sontag and the physical vigor of Babe Didrikson."


The obit was published in the Philadelphia Inquirer.
