Born in White Rock, BC on October 14th, 1955 to Shirley and the late Whitey (Bruce) Judson; Pat grew up in a busy household with 4 other siblings – Bonnie Lowery, Paul Judson, Kim Judson (Mike Youritchuk) and Danny (Hazel) Judson and together they became a household name in the community. The family ran a concession business and Pat spent many seasons working in various fairs and events. Pat remained living in White Rock for the majority of her life and loved the beach and memories that it held for her. Pat later went on to marry her high school sweetheart and the love of her life – Chris Bowman and together they had 5 children – Krista Lysenko (nee Bowman), Jessika Houston (nee McNay), Miranda Torget (nee McNay), Cassie Atherley (nee Bowman) and Tyler Bowman. She was a loving Grandma to Austin, Lukka, Evan, Conner, Nola, Chayse, Wyatt and was looking forward to meeting and the newest addition in March of 2016.

She will be missed by so many. A Celebration of Life will be held in her honour on January 16th, 2016 at 1pm at the Semiahmoo Fish and Game Club, 1284 184 St., Surrey, BC.
