Obituary for Giovanna Patterson

Giovanna Sacripanti Patterson of Great Falls, VA passed away on Sunday, January 28, 2018 at the age of 53. She was the beloved wife of Jerome Patterson, mother of Alexandra and Christina Patterson, daughter of Luigi and Maria Sacripanti and sibling to Pete, Marcello and Gina Sacripanti.

Giovanna was raised in Hyattsville, Maryland and attended St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic High School (1982) in Bladensburg, Maryland. She received her Bachelor of Science in Computer Science from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (1986) in Blacksburg, Virginia and continued on to receive a Master’s degree in Computer Science from The George Washington University (1991) in Washington, DC.

Throughout her esteemed career, Giovanna’s professional accomplishments came second to her love for others. She was active in many communities and especially enjoyed her time supporting The Children’s Inn at NIH in Rockville, Maryland. Family and friends alike describe Giovanna as a thoughtful leader, compassionate friend, altruistic volunteer, and fearless in the pursuit of her dreams. She enjoyed traveling, celebrating her Italian heritage, being by the oceanside, and spending time with her family. She will be missed by all who knew and loved her.
