Family was extremely important to Pat, there was nothing she loved more than getting the whole family together for Sunday Dinners and cooking for them. She enjoyed gardening for many years and had the most beautiful flower beds. Pat was a lifelong member of the Women’s Institute and the Baptist Women’s Missionary Society of Canada.
Special thank you to the staff and nurses of the Carleton Kirk Lodge for their excellent care and kindness towards Mom during her time there.
