Patricia Elaine Willson (nee Lennox)
December 28, 1937 - February 27, 2017
Pat passed peacefully at home with her family after a brief fight with pancreatic cancer. Pat was predeceased by her son Jefferson, husband George Willson, and parents Hugh and Peigi Lennox. She is lovingly remembered by her daughter Beth Tutiah, sister Sue (Wayne) McCartney of Thompson, nieces Karen and Heather (Paajoe) and grand nephews Lennox and Asher.
Pat was a graduate of St. Boniface Nursing School. She worked ER and Childrens floor. When her children were older she returned to nursing at Deer Lodge, Seven Oaks and Bethania Nursing Home.
Pat was kind and caring. She never complained about a problem. She looked for a solution. She volunteered in many capacities over the years. Since retirement she had been active with the St. Agnes Health Guild of Children’s Hospital, worked the Teddy Bear picnic or the Book Mart. She did what she could to help others.
Her weekly exercise classes kept her active. In the summer she would be out at the Tuxedo Lawn Bowling Club. In winter it was Wednesday afternoon curling. She loved to walk to City Park as part of her day.
Pat travelled extensively with George. Later she teamed up with Beth or Wayne and Sue. She loved meeting new places and learning more about the world.
Pat said she was happy with her life. She’d been lucky to travel, have great friends, fun times. She spent her last Christmas at Paint Lake with her family.
Pat said goodbye to her family and friends at a Celebration of Life held on January 28 at Charleswood United Church. Pat enjoyed the stories and wishes of the many who attended. She felt fortunate to say her last good byes. Rest in Peace Pat.
