Born in Halifax on August 28, 1941, Patsy lived most of her adult life in Montreal and Toronto with a career in international shipping until her retirement as traffic manager with Nichimen Canada. Patsy had a great love of food, architecture, interior design and was always the most stylish and well-dressed among us.

She is predeceased by her parents, Courtney and Helen (Hardie) Ashton, and siblings, Gary, Ken, June and Barbara.

The family wishes to thank Nova Scotia Health, Continuing Care, EHS, VON and Dr. Allison Woodbury for their dedicated care and support.
