It is with broken hearts we have to announce the passing of a beloved Mother, Grandmother, Great Grandma and Great Great Grandmother.
Pat was born on September 26, 1922, and left us on August 18, 2022, just one month short of her 100 year birthday, for which she would have received a letter from the Queen. A milestone she was hoping to achieve.
Predeceased by her husband of 53 years Jim (the love of her life), 4 siblings of whom she was the eldest.
She will be greatly missed by her daughter Vicki McNaughton (Gary), her son Bob James (Monika), grandchildren Shelly, Reece (Heather), Bryce (Florence), Jared (Samantha), great grandchildren, Brandin, Alexander, Sydney, Keelan and Declan, and one great-great-grandchild Aubree, many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
In 1999 in Victoria, BC, Governor General Adrienne Clarkson presented our Mom with the Governor General’s Caring Canadian Award in recognition of her 52 years of outstanding and selfless contribution to her Community and Canada.
The family would like thank Doctor Kraig Montalbetti, staff at Ridgeview Lodge and Kim at Alternatives Funeral & Cremation Services for their compassionate care.
There will be no service as requested. The family will gather later to honour her life.
