After a full and happy life, our dear Mom passed away peacefully at Sunnybank in Oliver at the age of 83 years, on her own mother's birthday. Predeceased by parents Frank and Alice Maltby and husband and friend Joe McKay of Burnaby, Pat leaves behind five children: Joe, Mike, Dan, Jim (Theresa) and Trish (Cal) Craik; six grandchildren: Rainbow Whiteside (Nick Berry), Erika and Ben McKay, Drew, Dalice and Carly Craik, plus daughters-in-law, treasured "Unca" Tom and Auntie Lil Goode, cousins, nieces, nephews and many, many friends. Pat was a pioneer of Burnaby, attending Gilmore Avenue Elementary and Burnaby Heights secondary schools. She stayed in Burnaby until 2009 when she relocated to Oliver to be closer to two sons, daughter, and the youngest three grandchildren. Upon becoming a single parent in the 70's, Pat enjoyed her work in the Case Reports office of the Vancouver Police Dept. until retiring in 1994. Pat was beloved by family and friends, her warm and vivacious spirit enriched the lives of everyone who knew her. We will miss her dearly.
