With great sadness we announce the passing of PAT KERR (Gloria Patricia May), beloved wife of Bill Kerr. Pat passed away peacefully, surrounded by her family, at St. Michael’s Health Centre, Palliative Care Unit, on Tuesday June 23, 2015, at the age of 76 years.
Pat was a devoted mom to Kelly (Al) Rypien, Sandy Williston, Jimmy (Laura) Kerr, and grandmother to Taylor and Matt Rypien, Aislinn and Emily Williston and Sydney and Sam Kerr.
Pat was born in 1938 in Sunderland, Ontario. She was predeceased by her parents, parents-in-law and nine siblings. Pat met Bill, the love of her life in 1956. Bill and Pat were married in 1958 and began their journey together in Pickering Village Ontario. It was during this time they welcomed Kelly, Sandy and Jimmy to join their journey. 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. At this time Pat found a love for golf and spent many weekends with Bill. She re-entered the work force with a career at Lethbridge Family Services and continued to always support family and friends. She loved and cherished the many friendships she created through all the people that she came into contact with.
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.
Pat had a brief, but courageous battle with cancer. The family would like to thank all the medical staff that provided excellent care with a heartfelt thanks to the staff of the St. Michaels Health Centre, Palliative Care unit. They were truly a gift.
A Celebration of Pat’s Life will be held at MCKILLOP UNITED CHURCH, 2329 – 15th Avenue South, Lethbridge, AB., on Tuesday, June 30, 2015 at 1:00 P.M. with Reverend Terry Shillington officiating. A private family Interment to follow.
