On October 3, 1960, Wydia Ann Patterson was born to Mary “Rubylee” Patterson and Amzie Moore, Sr. in Cleveland, Mississippi. Her early education commenced at HM Nailor Elementary School to East Side High School until the death of her mother, Mary “Rubylee.” Upon arriving in Milwaukee, Wisconsin she attended Parkman Middle School and later graduated from Rufus King high school in 1978. Wydia went to UWM where she majored in Business Administration. While at UWM she met and married Brett O’Neil. To this union they had three daughters Amber, Ashley, and Adrienne O’Neil. Their family was later blessed with a son, Stephen Patterson-O’Neil.
In 1984 she gave her heart and life to Jesus Christ and began a journey that would last until her death. Not once did she regret the road of life she had chosen. She attended the Monday Night Bible class under the teaching of Pastor Joe Dallas of Milwaukee. Wydia later became a faithful member of Fox River Christian Church under the spiritual leadership of Pastor Guy.
Wydia sewed the plan of salvation seeds everyday, every way possible to anyone in close proximity; she was a true evangelist. Wydia’s entire Christian life was a witness for Jesus, her actions spoke so loudly that there was never a doubt about who she represented. She was very passionate about her relationship with God and wanted to obey everything that God wanted her to do. She faithfully followed the instructions written in the Bible. She loved the Lord with all her heart, withholding nothing. To God be the glory!
Wydia leaves to cherish her memories: her beautiful daughters Amber (Kyle) Kausalik, Ashley O’Neil, Adrienne O’Neil and Stephen Patterson-O’Neil. Loved beyond measure by her four grandchildren: Wesley James, Alexia Scarlett Anne, Julianna Adrienne and Victoria Katherine Gabrielle Kausalik. Beloved sisters: Gwendolyn Patterson, Felecia (Bruce) Hunter, and Paulette Carter. Brothers: Vincent Patterson and Amzie Moore, Jr. Also loved by her Aunt Evelyn, Aunt Chris, Aunt Laura, Uncle Matthew, nephews, nieces and cousins, a host of friends from her beloved church, Fox River Christian, and the numerous ministry friends she had the absolute pleasure of serving with.
