In loving memory ~

Patricia passed away peacefully June 24, 2024. She was a loving and caring wife, mother, grandmother and good friend. She leaves her son David MacKay, daughter Diane Lockstead (Michael) and grandsons Cale and Hayden.

Pat was born in Vancouver June 8th, 1929 and raised with her sister Jacquie (pre-deceased). She met her husband Donald MacKay(pre-deceased) and was married in Aug. 1952 and raised their family in Burnaby. Pat was a homemaker and taught skating lessons at the local ice arena. They moved to Nanaimo in 1989 to be closer to family.

Pat and Don loved to travel and took many cruises and trips abroad. They also enjoyed fishing, camping and road trips. Her hobbies included gardening, sewing, scrap-booking and genealogy. Her true passion was sketching and painting and she produced some beautiful works of art in her later years. Mom Loved and Laughed but most of all she lived. Pat was always welcoming in her ways and had a great sense of humour. Her graceful ever present smile warmed all who were fortunate to know her. She will be truly missed by all.

Thank you to all the kind nurses, doctors and staff at Dufferin Place who took such good care of her.

In lieu of flowers please send donations to Nanaimo Regional General Hospital.
