Patti was born in Brilliant, Castlegar, BC and relocated to Salmo, Trail, Remac, Beaverdell, Kitwanga, Smithers and for the past 8 years resided in Duncan with her husband; Rene. She cherished all the friendships she made throughout her life and was known for her giving spirit, Russian cooking, playing cards, knitting, crocheting and her amazing ability to bring happiness through her accordion playing. Besides the great love & admiration for her family, she also had passion for gardening, canning, picking pine mushrooms, going to bingo, fishing and boating the West Coast in their boats; Sea-Duction, Chappy & Golden Days.
Patti fought a long and painful battle with pancreatic cancer. Although her last months were compiled of doctors, hospitals visits and tests, she always portrayed a positive attitude and never gave up hope. She took comfort in knowing that her family were close and spent every moment possible with her.

Rene’s children would like to express their deep appreciation to their Dad for the love he gave their Mom throughout her life, especially during the final months of Mom’s terrible battle with cancer. Dad retired prematurely instead of Mom going into a home. “Thank you Dad, you always stayed by Mom’s side to make her comfortable and secure. She often expressed her loving gratitude to the sacrifices you made. We love you and will forever be by your side”.
