Pat had a successful career spanning over 31 years at SaskPower, retiring to care for her elderly father and grandma. Throughout her life, she was a dedicated volunteer. She spent her free time spreading love and helping others for many organizations, notably, the Regina Floral Conservatory and Christ Lutheran Church. She very much enjoyed her volunteer activities and loved making quilts for people around the world. She made numerous friendships over the years through her volunteer work. She believed strongly in giving back to her community and always did so with a smile on her face.
Pat was the rock and driving force of the family, always encouraging and inspiring her family to live life to the fullest with gratitude in their hearts. Forever grateful, we will live life to honor her.
The family would like to give a special thanks to her nurse Scott, and the wonderful staff at palliative care at the Pasqua Hospital.
