In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her sister, Tina Howard. She is survived by her loving husband of almost 20 years, Bryan Patterson; children, Christy Lynn Wilcox, Brandon (Meghan) Lisch and Shawn Lisch; grandchildren, Joseph Trimble, Christain Dooley, Brooklynn Lisch, Zakary Lisch and Colton Lisch; sister, Trina Howard; brothers, Thomas J.B. Howard, Jr. and Todd Howard; and numerous nieces and nephews. Latonya was the bright beam of every room. She knew exactly how to light up the atmosphere and wasn’t afraid to speak her mind. She was a wonderful and caring wife, mom and grandma who enjoyed spending time with her family and friends, especially going on gambling trips to the Hollywood Casino, relaxing by a pond fishing or just sitting and watching cartoons. Her smile was bigger than life and the love for her family will forever be cherished and held in the hearts of those who knew her. Viewing will be held on Monday, Dec. 12, 2022 from 12-1p.m. with service beginning at 1p.m. at Jackson Lytle & Lewis Life Celebration Center.
