The couple had three grown children named Felix, Ned and Evie.
Ms. Paterson was known for her support to local charities and as a passionate supporter of the Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopedic Hospital, especially the Horatio’s Garden project.

Rose Ridley Family & Death Cause
Rose Ridley has three children together, two sons Felix and Ned, and a daughter called Evie. Evie, 28, is a talented horse rider who won the British Junior Eventing Championships in 2008 when she was just 16. She is understood to currently live in London and her social media profile shows she is a keen-music lover with a photo at a festival. Felix, a former student at Dublin’s Trinity College, is a keen traveler who has posted pictures of his trips away online. Ned, a global marketing manager at drinks brand Pernod Ricard, also lives in London. He studied Spanish and French at Durham University but went to school in Shrewsbury. During planning, with housing secretary Robert Jenrick, who searched a hotel in Sandown Park, and the Jockey Club’s application for more than 300 homes, Surrey was unanimously rejected by councilors. The intervention raised concerns over conflicts of interest due to the Jockey Club’s links with senior Conservative figures and donors. In March, Mr. and Mrs. Paterson spent 15 days with both coronavirus and quarantine, but the MP said they were recovering despite feeling ‘very strange’. Mr. Paterson said today: “I must let you know that my wife Rose died in our family home in Shropshire. Rose and I were married for 40 happy years. She was a wonderful, loving wife, mother and grandmother. Her death was a terrible shock for all of us.”
