FINLAY, Patricia June

October 10, 1943 – November 23, 2012

Patricia June Finlay, of Calgary, passed away on Friday, November 23, 2012 at Agape Hospice. She was 69 years old.

Pat lived out her final few months with the same strength of spirit, courage and dignity that characterized the rest of her life and was, in her final days, at all times in the presence of those who loved her.

She was predeceased by her father, Gerald Stilwell, and will be deeply missed by her surviving family: her husband Don; her mother June Stilwell; her children Rob (Sharon) Finlay and Kate (Scott) Bryan; brother Bill Stilwell; and an extended family including grandchildren Miya, Natasha and Emily, nieces and cousins who loved her dearly. Over the course of her life, Pat’s kindness and great capacity for love had attracted to her an amazing network of close friends whom she very much treasured, and who were so instrumental in making her passing a gentle one.

A Celebration of Pat’s Life will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S Park Memorial Chapel (5008 Elbow Drive S.W. Calgary, AB) on Tuesday, November 27, 2012 at 10:00 a.m. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

    To Don and all of Pat’s family,
    I first met Pat when she was a student at Mount Royal. I was one of her massage instructors as well as her aromatherapy instructor in 1999. I also had the great pleasure of sharing a wonderful day of white water rafting with her in celebration of graduation. Our life paths have criss-crossed many times since, most recently as students together in the Blossoming Heart classes. I feel blessed to have experienced Pat’s kind and loving spirit. May you find comfort in your loving memories of her.
