July 10, 1948 – February 18, 2015
Patricia, 66, died peacefully at Peace Arch Hospital in White Rock, from complications from pneumonia. Pat was born July 10, 1948 in Richmond Hill, Ontario, the daughter of Joseph Orville Donnelly & Mary Rosella McIntaggart. Pat loved family and spending time with them at the cottage at Halls Lake in Ontario. Moving to British Columbia in 1999 with her husband Norm and daughter Kayla and creating such distance between herself and her family was challenging for Pat but she was supportive and positive in every way and helped us all create our new life in Surrey/ White Rock. Not long after arriving she began volunteering at Kayla’s dance studio and soon became Office Manager of Joy of Movement and Visions Dance Co. There she met some wonderful people and helped shape the lives of many children and young adults that attended the studio. Pat was an avid reader, loved card and board games, and movies. She cheered loudly when her favourite won American Idol or the Voice and cried when they lost. She was the first in line for tickets to Skate Canada to applaud her favourites Kurt Browning and Elvis Stojko. She relished every opportunity she had to care for Cassidy, her granddaughter, while Kayla was attending University and working. Cassidy very much misses her Grandmother, as we all do. A Celebration of Life Service will be held at Victory Memorial Park Funeral Centre, 14831 28th Avenue in Surrey, on Friday, March 6th, 2015 at 1:00 pm.
