"Auntie Pat" to Bonnie (Paul), Debbie (Mike), Laurie (Garry), Heather (David), Elaine (John), Valerie (Jesse) and Brian (Sarah). Pat will be dearly missed by many other relatives, friends, and neighbours. Pat was a talented seamstress, enthusiastic knitter, passionate gardener, avid reader, and expert cat scratcher.
