Patricia (Pat) Anne, nee Hanlan
May 19, 1924 -Jan 22, 2007
With sadness, Pat’s family announces her passing into the Arms of our Lord to join her loving husband Don, and son Randy.
Born in the roaring twenties, to Daniel Francis Hanlan and Ethel Mae Goacher, a big sister to brother and best friend, Charles “Bud”, Francis Hanlan and half-sister Helen. Pat was a vibrant, unforgettable gal who met and married the man of her dreams and raised a loving family. She was a nurturing mother to Linda (Bill), Danny, Catherine (Rice) Randy (Nancy) and Heather. Pat leaves behind 13 grandchildren and one great-grandchild who were the light of her life.
Pat’s door was open to those in need who could always find shelter, a caring word and a cup of tea. She was a natural gardener, talented seamstress and a wonderful storyteller.
Later in life, Pat moved to White Rock B.C. where, with her platinum- blonde hair, she became a well-known personality. Her elegance and sunny smile made her a recognizable “lady” about town. Pat was a caring, generous Mom and friend to many and will be dearly missed.
A celebration of her life was held in White Rock, on Sunday, January 28th 2007
Pat will be interred in Toronto at a later date, laid to rest with her Husband and Son.
