About Us

A vision to establish a business and a passion to help the people in their time of need is how this dream became reality.

Our founder, the late Mr. Frankie Patterson, had always had the entrepreneurial mindset and began starting his business ventures at a young age. He had a dream to own and operate his own funeral home in the place he called home, Eastover, North Carolina. He began to take interest in the deceased at the tender age of 5. He later began taking photos of them and posting them all around his room. He knew then what he was called to do and where his passion was going to lead him.

Once graduated, he started internships within Funeral Homes around the city. He spent countless years under the tutelage of many wonderful firms, and one day decided he was ready to take on his next venture... Opening his own funeral home and adding competition into the industry. In 2002, he became the owner of (what was formerly known as) Eastover Community Funeral Home, which has served as Eastover's funeral Home from then until now.

In 2009, Mr. Patterson passed away, however his vision did not. The torch was then passed to his wife, Mrs. Sharon L. Patterson. Since then, the name has changed to Patterson Memorial Funeral Home, but the same passion still remains the same. Mrs. Patterson has branched from her profession of hair into the funeral industry. She went to school to get her license to be a Funeral Director and says that "It's one of the best things I've ever decided to do."

Working to combine her vision into her husband's, she finally established her own Funeral Home in 2017, in her hometown of Lumberton, North Carolina. She saw a need for people in Robeson County, and after much deliberation, she constructed Celebrations of Life by Leggett Patterson Funeral Home.
