Predeceased by her brother Chuck and her grandson Dustin. Survived by her son Dean; great-granddaughter Chanel, Cody; and many friends. Pat graduated from King George High School and attended the Vancouver School of Art where she studied commercial art and attained the job of her dreams in the Advertising Department at the Hudson’s Bay Company. She also worked as secretary at St. Andrew’s and St. Stephen’s Presbyterian Church and was a long-time member of the choir. Pat always had a flair for design, a great sense of style and looked as if she just stepped out of Vogue magazine. We want to thank the staff at West Vancouver Care Centre for all the love and care they gave to Pat. We will miss you, Pat– your smile, your great sense of humour and your caring spirit. Celebration of Life will be held on Friday, December 9, 2016 at 2:00 p.m. at St. Andrew’s and St. Stephen’s Presbyterian Church, 2641 Chesterfield Avenue, North Vancouver.
