Pat died peacefully, with her loving wife Judy, and dear friends Penny Pepper and Janet Lironi beside her. She showed such grace in the face of serious illness, and gave so much to those around her through this time. Pat was a nurse for over 30 years—she found caring for others at the end of life to be her most rewarding work. She was a strong, determined, courageous woman, with a depth of kindness and a wicked sense of humour. One of her greatest joys during this past year were her two kittens, Grace and Gryphon.
Pat will be deeply missed by her wife, her mother Fran Edwards and older sister Rebecca Edwards, many friends, and colleagues at Parksville Home Care. A Celebration of Pat’s Life will be held February 25th, 2 PM at First Memorial in Nanaimo.
