Life felt simple, and we as children were blessed with having a stay at home mother. There were many happy memories of birthday parties, and over the top Halloween parties! Music was often blaring and impromptu dancing was not unheard of in this home! If someone didn't know how to dance, she would teach them.

 

Even if she didn't feel well, there was always an abundance of food for the family and friends. For these reasons, our house was always full. She would sew outfits, and let friends live with us if they needed.

 

She made her home so loving and welcomed all. So much so, that all the neighbourhood friends would congregate there because she made it feel like their second home. Parents of those friends were there on a regular basis for coffee & visits. She was a true friend to many, & a very caring individual.

 

After the kids grew up, she went to work as a bookkeeper & also worked in a daycare for the love of children.

 

As she got older, she started knitting and still enjoyed life in a simple way, even though her health was deteriorating. We will miss you & you will be in our hearts forever!


In compliance with Patricia’s wishes, cremation has taken place and a family Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
