Plan Ahead

Patton, Ingeborg (Inge)


Inge, 83, passed away on Wednesday, July 29th in Carrollton, Texas at the home of her daughter and son-in-law after a brief but courageous battle with lung cancer. She was a loving wife, mother, and grandmother, and will be greatly missed by all. Inge was preceded in death by her husband John “Pat” M. Patton.      She was born April 8th, 1932 in Heidelberg, Germany to the late Joseph and Louise Schmidt, where she endured many hardships throughout her childhood. Besides being adopted by another family member and then returned to her mother, at the age of 11, she was imprisoned by the Russians in WWII.

       During her 46 years in Dallas, she began her career as a beautician at Winn Lee Beauty Salon on Preston Rd., but soon after opened Inge’s Beauty Salon in Preston Center.   Inge’s love of cooking and her desire to please others, along with Pat’s dream of opening up a restaurant, were the foundation for the creation of Pat and Inge’s Deli in Preston Center in 1986. Inge focused daily on serving her clientele in both the beauty and restaurant business until the birth of her daughter’s first child in 1991, after which the restaurant soon closed. Several years later, Inge’s Beauty Salon was forced to close due to a change in property ownership; however throughout all the location changes, Inge continued to serve her clientele and friends in Preston Center until her shocking diagnoses with cancer on March 23rd, 2015.

       Inge is survived by her children; daughter Suzanne Privitt and husband James Sr., son Melvin Van Note and wife Sheree, all of Carrollton, Texas, and sons, Steven Van Note & Todd Hill of McKinney, Texas. Along with grandchildren, Rachel, Jonny, and Christopher Van Note, and Jimmy and John Privitt, all of Carrollton, Texas.

     A Memorial service to celebrate Inge’s life will be held at 1 PM Saturday, August 8th, 2015 at North Dallas Funeral Home Chapel, 2710 Valley View Lane, Farmers Branch, Texas.

    The family would like to thank the Season’s Hospice team for their unconditional support and compassionate care, along with the dedication and love of many friends who supported them throughout this difficult time.

   Please send the family condolences and share memories on this website.

    Liebe Schatzi-Inge
    Ich vermisse Dich so sehr. Wenn ich morgens aufstehe, denke ich an Dich. Deine Schmerzen sind auch meine. Es ist ein Jammer, dass wir so weit voneinander getrennt sind. Unsere Telefongespräche sind ein großer Trost für mich. Du hast jetzt keine Schmerzen mehr worüber ich dankbar bin.

"I highly recommend this funeral home and crematorium; when I had to make and pay for my brother’s arrangements across state lines, Evelyn Montonya, in particular, demonstrated both compassion and professionalism and made a very sad and difficult situation much easier. Many thanks."

"The unexpected passing of my husband was a very difficult and trying time for my boys and I. I had the good fortune of having Abel walk us thru this process. Working with him was such a weight off my shoulders. He was professional, so polite and helpful. The service was beautiful – never did I feel rushed or like just another customer. They gave me the time I needed and I appreciate that so much! Also Mr. Brooks took special care of my husband as he is a fellow mason. I would highly recommend working with Abel and North Dallas Funeral Home."

"As soon as the call was made to Mr. Wayne Baxter all of my brothers final needs were taken care of. They walked me through what to expect the timeline and even dealt with the cemetery and the grave diggers. I was a hot mess due to my brothers sudden and unexpected passing. The experience was seamless and made it easy for my brother’s friends and family to say their last goodbyes. They even had the size to accommodate such a large group that showed up . The package deals that they offered were cost-effective and didn’t break my bank account. They included extras and accommodations that other funeral homes charged extra for. All the staff was amazing including Mr. Don Dodd . I can not thank them enough for all their help."

Dear John,

It was such a nice pleasure to meet you, and what you had planned for my father just took my breath away. It was so special to hear you tell us how he would just come over to talk with you. I think it brought him much comfort. Tha you for putting that Air Force article of him on your website. I am going to have a replica made of the painting of his plane to give you.

Thank you again for all you have done to honor our dad.

Love, The Gillilands
