Patte passed away peacefully in her home surrounded by her family on Sunday October 27th 2019 at the age of 61.

Dear Tim, Justin, and family.

I worked with Patte in Human Resources at RBC. She was a dedicated, positive, team player with a great sense of humour. We shared so many great conversations and laughs during our coffee breaks - memories I will always treasure.

With deepest sympathy, Donna

Justin, Tim and Patte’s Family.
Our hearts are broken. I will remember Patte as a strong, positive woman with a contagious personality who loved her family, life, and travel. She was a very special person in my life, like a family member to me. She was a mentor and always in my corner. She’s a true example to others to always maintain positive attitude. Nothing stopped Patte. I hope we can be half as strong as Patte. My love and condolences to her Family. We’ll celebrate as you wanted us to but know that we’ll miss you terribly Patte.

Patte and I worked side by side on many RBC projects. She was smart, focused, direct and made me laugh everyday. We had great times together. It never mattered how busy the day she always took time to tell me what she was planning for her next meal. She knew how to bring balance to our day. RIP my dear friend.

Dear Tim,
So sorry to hear of Patte’s passing. She was always eager to have a good time and share some laughs. It was clearly evident the love you and Patte had for each other. Not many people are fortunate to ever have experienced that kind of love and friendship. Always keep it in your heart. We are thinking of you during this difficult time. Take care of yourself.
