Annamarie Patton Obituary

Annamarie Patton, 62, of Oklahoma City, peacefully passed away at her home on May 4, 2024, surrounded by her loving family.

Annamarie was born on December 16, 1961, to John and Ruby (Reece) Billos in Jersey City, New Jersey. Annamarie graduated from Moore High School in 1979.

After graduation, Annamarie entered the field of insurance. She earned several certifications, CIC and CRM, while working for Oklahoma Farmer’s Union, now American Farmers and Ranchers, for 38 years. Annamarie was passionate about her work and eventually was promoted to manager of underwriting.

In 1997, Annamarie met Stephen Patton at a New Year’s Eve celebration. Just a short five months later they would be married, surrounded by friends and family. They enjoyed their lives together and lived it to the fullest. You never saw one without the other. They traveled often, laughed daily, and were each other’s best friend.

In 2017, Annamarie left the workforce and became a manager at home. Her house was always spotless and very well organized to the point where all the silverware was turned the same direction in the drawers. We were in awe of her minimalistic and perfectionist nature. Annamarie collected frogs, which we thought was fitting as the frog symbolizes nurturing love.

Annamarie was extremely intelligent and could solve any problem her family had with ease. She was always a gracious host. Annamarie loved family gatherings, especially Thanksgiving in Missouri, where the family would play many table games. She could hold her own with the family, bantering on any subject. She was witty and soft spoken but had the heart of a lion. Annamarie was loved and adored by all who knew her.

Annamarie had a passion for gambling. She loved taking trips to Las Vegas with her husband and limo rides from the airport to the hotels. She was skilled in video poker where she would often come out on the winning end.

Annamarie was preceded in death by her father, John, her mother, Ruby, and her brother, John Billos.

Annamarie will be greatly missed by her loving husband, Stephen Andrew Patton; sister-in-law Sharon Scheurich (and husband Chris); brothers-in-law Philip and Noel Patton; and many cherished nieces, nephews, great nieces, and great nephews.

A celebration of life for Annamarie will be held at a later date in Joplin, Missouri.
