Oshawa Funeral Home
847 King Street West
Oshawa, ON
Beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister, aunt and friend. She passed away peacefully with her family surrounding her on Thursday October 21st at Lakeridge Hospital, Oshawa. Patricia was born in Glasgow, Scotland on September 11th 1936, the ninth of twelve children, to Theresa (Tessie Mac) and Jimmy Doyle. At 18 she worked as an office manager where she met the tenacious young man who would become her husband and the love of her life, Kevin Kelly. They were married for 63 years. Pat and Kevin along with their first son Kevin James, immigrated to Oshawa in 1959 where they lived and worked and had three more children, Kathleen, Michael and John. Kevin and Pat were the successful owners of the Tartan Tavern for over 40 years where the Kelly Family often performed. Pat sang and danced, clogging to the Irish music and pleasing crowds with her love of life and her most famous move, kicking her foot over her head. Patricia was a loving mother and a devoted grandmother to Kevin and Karen and their daughters Jacqueline and Emma, Kathleen and Mark and their children, Shannon, Connor and Quinn, Michael and Brenda and their children Olivia and Sean and John and Jill and their girls, Devyn, Julia and Grace. She once said if she knew how much she loved her grandchildren she would have had them first. The last of her family, Patricia will be lovingly remembered by her many nieces, nephews, extended family and friends, her husband, her children and her grandchildren. Her tenacious spirit and her legacy continues in her five great grandchildren, Beckham and Molly, the twins, Harper and Rowan and the newest addition Kruz. Visitation was held at the OSHAWA FUNERAL HOME, 847 King Street West (905-721-1234). Mass of Christian Burial was be held at ST. GREGORY THE GREAT CATHOLIC CHURCH.
