In loving memory of Frances Patricia Jane (Pat) Patterson, born Brantford Ont March 14, 1922, died Kelowna BC Feb 14, 2020, much loved mother of Ian (d.2006) (Joan, Toronto), Jill Rix, Kelowna, and Stephen, Collingwood Ont. Grandsons Greg Rix of Ottawa Ont, Andrew Rix of Kelowna and Matthew Patterson of Wasaga Beach Ont. Mum was raised in Toronto and attended Branksome Hall for 10 years. After graduation she worked at various secretarial jobs prior to marriage to Milton Patterson (d. 1987). Their three children were raised in Toronto and Windsor Ont. Both sides of the family were founding members of Geneva Park YMCA on Lake Couchiching and Mum summered there until her move to Kelowna to be near daughter Jill in 1995. Mum was a wonderful hostess, needle work artist, cook, book lover, cat affeciando, and enjoyed aqua fit well into her 90"s. Mum was a volunteer most of her life, for the Windsor Cancer clinic, the Hugh MacMillan Centre in Toronto and the Kelowna Blood Donor Clinic We will all remember her sense of humor and her laugh which was contagious, as well as her loving support, kindness and intelligence, and of course her ability to remake many words that are now part of the family lingo. She was dearly loved and will be dearly missed. Heartfelt thanks to the staff at Cottonwoods and Dr. Jason Cassidy.
