Pat devoted her life to raising her children, and creating a wonderful, loving home. Many summers were spent camping and traveling to the east coast to spend time with Bill’s family. Many lasting friendships were formed in Pickering Village due to her involvement with the church, hockey rink, soccer fields and her participation in community and professional activities. In 1983, Pat, Bill and family relocated to Lethbridge, Alberta where she continued to support her husband and children in their many endeavours.

Pat adored and embraced her role as a mother-in-law and grandmother. Her grandchildren became her life. She was their biggest fan. Grandma was always there to encourage, nurture, love and cheer for them.
