The reason Severus Snape has the same patronus as Lily's is because he was deeply in love with her and the grief and guilt he felt after her death may have cause his patronus to change into a doe, or it already was a doe depending on when he first cast the spell.
Snape was born to Eileen Prince, a witch, and Tobias Snape, a Muggle, making him a half-blood (hence the name, "Half-Blood Prince"). This is rare for a Death Eater, as remarked in the last book, though Voldemort himself also had a Muggle father.
“The prophecy did not refer to a woman,” said Dumbledore. “It spoke of a boy born at the end of July —” “You know what I mean! He thinks it means her son, he is going to hunt her down — kill them all —”
Severus and Dumbledore were taking about Lily when Severus revealed his patronus was the same as Lily's, indicating Severus's love for her. Lily has been dead for 15 years, so Dumbledore says “after all this time” (meaning Severus still loves Lily after 15 year?)
Either he was gaslighting Snape to panic him into agreeing to become a spy, or he was projecting his own guilt about Ariana onto Snape, and punishing him for his own fault.
