BATTISON, Patricia (nee Ougden)
June 15, 1928 – September 3, 2015
Survived by loving husband Charles (Chuck); daughters Sharon (Guy) and Lori (Terry); granddaughters Carly (Steve) and Robyn (Jared); great grandson Hudson and sister June MacKenzie. Pat spent her early years in Vancouver, moving to Richmond when it was a still a farming community in 1960. Although being a homemaker was her full time job, she eventually moved into the work force to become secretary to the President of Gray Beverage in Vancouver. She loved to travel and in the early years the family took trips in a small trailer to all the great vacation spots like Penticton, Peachland and Squamish. As the girls got older, the trips got longer: Seattle, Los Angeles & Disneyland were some of her favourites. Once Chuck retired, the 2 of them started travelling farther afield; Hawaii, Hong Kong, Florida, California, Arizona, Great Britain and Portugal. Her favourite all time destination was Palm Springs and for the past 40 years she vacationed happily as a Canadian ‘snowbird’. A family memorial ceremony was held September 24, 2015.
