Patricia lived in several parts of the Waterloo region, creating community connection wherever she went. She was a genuine nurturer, committed to supporting the needs of children, the disabled and elderly. A maternal figure to so many, Patricia was loving and selfless. Many in the community will have known her from her work at the Wellington Waterloo Airport and the Waterloo YMCA. In her leisure time, she and Frank spent summers on their boat in Grimsby, golfing and travelling. When at home, Patricia loved to tend to her award-winning gardens and hosting friends and family. She was a person of incredible taste, meticulously designing several homes. She will be remembered for her beauty, grace, benevolence and generous spirit.

True to character, Patricia asked that a celebration of life take place at a future date when COVID-19 dangers recede. In memoriam Patricia requested that donations be made to the charity of one’s choice.
