Died peacefully at the RAH after a short illness.
Aged 85 years.

Cherished daughter of Arthur and Molly,
and beloved sister of Geoff.

Wife of ‘Des’ for 34 years.

Immensely proud and loving mother
of Brendan, Tracey and Philip.

Her love of her three children
was always unconditional and limitless.
She imbued in them values and intelligence
within the framework of her Catholic faith.

She loved her grandchildren and lives on through them-
Paul, Alex, Christopher, Esther, Tom and Emily.

In saying goodbye to those whom she loved, she said,
“I am 85, I have had a good life,
and looking at my family,
I am proud of what I have done.”

She made a difference and,
in her children and grandchildren,
saw her greatest contribution
to the world in which she lived.

Christine Morris -

Pat was a vibrant member of the Eldercare community. She was a passionate and energetic advocate for our LGTBI community through her participation in the Eldercare LGBTI Advisory Group. She was a pleasure to know and work with. Her presence and her advocacy will be sorely missed.


Jenny Scott -

Pat, 85 years was not nearly enough! I only met you recently through the Eldercare community and I knew straight away that you were a goldmine of wisdom and good humour. I will miss you.


Nancy Beecroft -
