Pat loved to paint and has won first place at the Fall Fair. She will be terribly, terribly missed by her family; daughter Rebecca Parlby (Jerry); son David (Lesca); grandchildren: Michael, Jonathon, Anthony and Crystal; great-grandchildren: Austin and Jayden Parks. Pat is also survived by daughters: Lydia, Chris-Ann, Wendy and their families; sisters: Teresa, Naomi and Eileen; brother Buddy and extended families Bates/Thompsons, especially Dorothy, Satch and family.
