NELSON, Patricia M.A. It is with sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of a cherished Wife, Mother, Sister and Friend. Pat fought courageously and succumbed to her illness as the sun rose on Aug 1, 2012. She is survived by her loving husband of 40 years, John; children Janet, John (Bocar) and Jake; siblings Daphne, Janice and Don (Charlene); her mother-in-law Jean as well as many nieces, nephews and dear friends. Pat had a heart with room in it for everyone. She had a zest for life and made friends wherever she went. Pat was all about community and had a wonderful creative flare that was evident in all she did. We will all miss her caring, compassionate and kind spirit for years to come and she will forever be cherished by all who knew her.
A Celebration of Pat’s life will be held at 2:00pm on Sunday August 12, 2012 at the East Delta Hall 10379 Ladner Trunk Road in Delta. In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Pat may be made to the BC Cancer Foundation or your local Food Bank. “I’m still kicking ass, and taking names.”
