Pat was known as a fun-loving, friendly, compassionate soul. She touched the lives of so many; sweet memories cling to her name.  She grew up in Breslau and lived there for many years raising her family with Bob.  She worked at the House of Friendship before retiring and moving to Red Bay.  She immersed herself in the Bruce Peninsula community by volunteering, joining local clubs and helping those in need.  She was extremely talented and enjoyed quilting, knitting, rug hooking, photography, cooking and gardening.  Pat loved spending time with her precious family, friends and her lovely pets. She was so dear to our hearts. We will miss her always.
