Dec 14, 1932 - Jun 13, 2012

It is our sad duty to write that our mother, Patricia Winnifred Carroll (Kellas), passed away peacefully on June 13 2012 at Lions Gate Hospital where she was born on December 14 1932.

She was predeceased by her husband of 50 years, George, in 1999.

Pat is survived by her 3 children: her two sons, Peter and Kelly Carroll and her daughter, Christine Spencer {William}.

Grandchildren: Rachael Carroll (Dave), Jessie Creasey (John), Earendil Spencer, Willow Spencer Kadiri (Oluseyi) and Alecia Spencer.

Great grandchildren: Maddison and Jaxson Creasey and Aidan Spencer.

She was a great mother, loving and kind to all, with a heart as big as Canada. Her grandparents, Peter and Mary Kellas were pioneers in North Vancouver, coming here around 1903 from Scotland and building a home at 815 West 20th St. Peter started the North Shore Press in Lower Lonsdale and their son Harry, Patricia's father, was born here in Canada and worked as the linotype operator at his father's print shop as a young man, Winnie Drury married Harry in the mid-1920s and in 1927 they built their home at 733 West 20th St just down the lane from Harry's parents and where their great grandson Kelly lives today.

She loved to knit and make stuffed animals. Clip recipes and old photos of the North Shore feeling a deep connection with this place. She loved to garden most of all and missed getting out in the beds planting and getting dirt under her nails after her legs gave out but she made do with tomatoes, herbs and lilies in the little green house on the sun deck.

At her request there will be no services held.

She will be missed...
