With heavy hearts we announce the passing of Pat Pederson (Morgan) this summer.
Patricia Marie Pederson was born March 18, 1929 to Christina and Andrew Morgan at Lucky Lake, Saskatchewan; a place she would always consider home.
Growing up at Lucky Lake enabled Pat to finish school and work at various local farms as well as at the hospital, before moving to BC in 1950 to train as a nurse. Pat’s ability to care for the elderly saw her move to work at the Cottage Hospital in Abbotsford by April 1955.
By November of ’55 Patricia married Lawrence (Swede) Pederson and the newlyweds moved into Swede’s newly constructed home near downtown Abbotsford. Pat resided at this residence until the end.
Pat’s son Dan was born in 1957 and was the apple of her eye. They were very close and travelled together many times to Saskatchewan to visit family and friends. Pat was always included in many of Dan’s social gatherings and she never failed to bring tasty treats to feed his ravenous friends.
Pat continued to care for the elderly and young alike throughout her life, often assisting and tending to various families’ needs in their homes. Pat enjoyed bowling and was active in the Trinity Memorial United Church located in downtown Abbotsford.
In her later years Pat enjoyed reading, knitting, crocheting and visiting local thrift stores to discover new treasures. Coffee times for Pat were to view nature and reminisce about growing up in the harsh, beautiful climate of her native Saskatchewan.
Predeceased by her husband, parents and both brothers, Pat was also heartbroken to lose her son Dan in 2014.
Pat is survived by her step grandson Lindsay and his wife Kim Hickmott and their children.
Donations in lieu of flowers will be gratefully accepted by the Trinity Memorial United Church in Abbotsford or the BC Cancer Society. Due to the Pandemic there will be an interment service at Hazelwood Cemetery for family and friends in the fall.
