HALLWORTH; Patricia (Trish)
December 10, 1939 ~ January 9, 2015
Passed peacefully while surrounded with the love of her family, after a 6 day bedside vigil. Mom was fearless and funny. As a young wife and mother, she and Dad moved the whole family from Manchester, England to Thompson, Manitoba and eventually settled in Vancouver, BC. She parasailed, took flying lessons (at the age 60) and surprised family, at one gathering, with her juggling skills. Travelling was a favourite passion and she and Dad thought nothing of getting in their car and driving to wherever they wanted to go. One of her favourite places was Palm Springs; she adored the sun, shopping and swimming. She was an accomplished knitter, crafter, creator and never shied from a challenge. Together Mom and Dad made sure we never went without. Mom loved her life, and is survived by her husband of 54 years Andrew Hallworth; 3 children: Sharon & Gary Laxon, Gary & Glenys Hallworth, Sandra & Mark Vancoughnett, 6 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren. She never missed an opportunity to be with us, and we, shall always miss her. If you wish to honour Trish please make a donation to the Alzheimers Society of BC
