August 25 1927 – February 1 2016
Pat McCubbin moved from Thurmaston, England to Cumberland in 2000 to be near her son, Arlo (Ruth) and granddaughter, Alix McCubbin. She readily settled in and obtained her citizenship as soon as possible. Pat soon joined many organizations such as the New Comers, Cumberland OAP, Cumberland United Church, Cumberland Legion, Cumberland Fitness/Coffee group, Evergreen Seniors, Elder College, Filberg Festival and the Horticultural Society to mention a few.
Pat readily enjoyed participating in all the activities and events involved in these organizations. She loved her art classes, going to the concerts, movies and plays, garden tours and she especially loved cruising and travelling to California to visit friends.
Pat is predeceased by her husband Peter and her son, Brian McCubbin and survived by her son Arlo (Ruth) and 3 granddaughters Alix, Tina and Jane and 4 great grandsons.
Arlo and family wish to thank the nurses, care aides and staff from VIHA and the St. Joseph’s hospital who cared so compassionately for Pat through this past year after her stroke. The family would especially like to thank Pat’s dear friend Lorraine Kendall and Dr. Janice MacLaughlin for all the time and care they readily gave to Pat.
A Celebration of Pat’s Life will take place on Saturday, February 13 at the United Church, 2688 Penrith Avenue, Cumberland at 1 pm and this will be followed by at light refreshment at the OAP Hall, 2680 Dunsmuir, until 4 pm.
We would like to invite all of Pat’s friends to come. In lieu of flowers, can donations please be made to the Cumberland United Church.
