Kristen Kaye Patterson Thornton


Kristen Kaye Patterson Thornton, 36, of Jasper, passed away Tuesday, February 13, 2018.

She was a graduate of Minor High School and Jefferson State Junior Community College Nursing School where she received her Registered Nurse degree. She was a nurse at Walker Baptist Medical Center and deeply enjoyed the care she gave and the difference she was able to make in the lives of so many patients.

She also deeply loved her three children, Evelyn (Evey) Kaye Trowbridge, 11; Thomas Jack Trowbridge, 7, and Alexander Starke Trowbridge, 5.

She is survived by her husband, Joe Brandon Thornton; her former husband, Nolin Trowbridge and her children, all of Jasper; her parents, Bruce L. and Sandra Kaye (Sandy) Patterson of Sumiton; her brother, Brett L. Patterson and wife Kadee, and her grand-parents, Robert (Pat) and Christine Patterson, all of Forestdale.

She attended The Gathering Church in Jasper.

The family will receive friends at 10 a.m. Tuesday, February 20th at New Horizon Memorial Funeral Home, 5203 Hollis Goodwin Road, Dora, AL. Service to follow at Noon with burial in the adjoining cemetery, with the Rev. Stanley Dotson officiating.

Flowers, of course, would be appreciated, however, if friends would rather make a donation to a charity of their choosing in Kristen’s name that would be a great memorial to her dedication to helping others.
