Seleemiah (Star-she-anna) Patterson was born on February 13, 1987, her soul and body went to rest on September 23, 2021. She was born to Carrie Belle Patterson and Donald Flowers. She was raised by her mother, grandmother Anna Patterson who Star referred to as mama and Jackie Lucky. Star-she-anna was employed by St. Joseph Hospital and Jani King Cleaning Service (Pinehurst Surgical).
Star was a beautiful, hard-working woman who lived up to her name. Her personality was as bright as the night’s sky. She would light up any room that she walked into. You couldn’t help but gravitate towards her warm, loving spirit. Whenever there was a family event at Barry’s and Saleemiah’s house you would hear everyone ask, “where is Star?” She would stroll in late, as usual, like she was on time. Star loved her family so much she would bother the kids, tell them “Let me see your nose.” Star would look in the kids’ noses and say, “dang you aint neva got no boogers.” Starsheanna loved to cook for her loved ones. She would make an announcement of what meals she wanted to prepare “Ribs or Pig Feet with Mac n Cheese and Cabbage” and before you know it, she was in the kitchen. Star had several different talents such as her love for decorating and natural-born hairstyling skills. Star had so my different wigs and hair extension she would look like five different people in one hour. You would think you met five new friends!
Star had an enormous love for animals. She had several dogs and cats. Star treated her animals like her own children. Her personality showed even in her beloved animals, she had a cat named…. Meow. Also, you would always see Star, with her baby Trixie. On one occasion, Star, placed a face mask on Trixie to keep her safe from Covid.
Star (aka Hooker or Hook) had a giving spirit. Whatever you need if she didn’t have it, Star would make a way to get it for you. She wanted everyone around her to be in a happy spirit. Even through her own pain, Star made sure everyone else was okay. Please do not misunderstand me, Star was no pushover. If you crossed her, or her family, she would lift you up with one arm, with the power of Anna Patterson and Thanos and will have you rethinking your actions. Then, Star, would probably invite you to her cookout the following week, that was her showing unconditional love. Speaking of unconditional love, Star had three jobs and quit one of those jobs just to take care of Anna Patterson (her grandmother) until she passed away.
One of Star’s favorite television shows, that mattered to her, was “The Walking Dead”. No one in the room could move, speak or breathe during the show and if you did interrupt her show she would send you home. Starsheanna loved music so much. One day at the House of Blues in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, Star, actually had a chance to meet her favorite American-Rapper, Songwriter and artist Nas. Who she referred to as her real life “husband.” Backstage, Hook, was nervous, sweating and could not believe Nas was currently in the same place as her. So, Nas finished performing and was getting ready to leave, yet, Nas had not come her way. So, suddenly Star turns and say very loudly with much empathy “Nas, please come here.” Nas turns around and proceeds towards Starsheanna. When Nas approached Star, she was in a state of shock. So, he hugged her, kissed her on the forehead and left. Also, Hook, loved the song “Summer Rain” and “Super Star” by Carl Thomas and a Super Star she was.
