December 30, 1923 – Rimbey, Alberta
December 25, 2014 – Calgary, Alberta
Pat passed away peacefully on Christmas Day just shy of 91 years young. Young, because she lived in her home up to only weeks before returning to the eternal light. Yeoman assistance was provided to her in the latter years in her home by her magnificent caregivers including Deanne, Jovey, Mandi, Samina, Jennifer, Pamela, Susan and Joy to which her family is eternally grateful.
Pat was born to Edith and William Edward (Ed) Johnston on a snowy winter’s day in the small town of Rimbey, Alberta in the home that her father had built, attended to by the doctor who arrived by cutter sleigh. Her 91 years involved a lot of fun curling at the Calgary Winter Club and many a hand of bridge to supplement her rather large undertaking of raising six delightful children.
Pat is survived by her children, Ed and Marilyn Malcolm, Bob and Frances Malcolm, Mary Anne Malcolm, Maureen and Jerry Pelletier, Jim Malcolm, and Bruce and Aurora Malcolm; her grandchildren, Stephanie, Robyn and Leah, Brad (Martha), Christine (Kevin) and Sandra Lynn, and Erin (Alon) and Renee; and great-grandchildren, Colette, Ariana and Alexander, and Sophie and Ella.
She was predeceased by her husband of more than 45 years, Tom (Ace) Malcolm.
Her best friend for her entire 91 years was her surviving younger sister Margaret (and Margaret’s recently deceased husband, Cecil). Margaret and Cecil were blessed with their three children, Bob (Joyce), Don (Lori) and Joan (Eric).
Pat and Tom were blessed to see much of the world, often travelling to the world curling championships, a sport they both loved. From these travels they made many friends around the world, which Pat still corresponded with. She was blessed with a large number of wonderful friends brought to her through her love of the Wild Rose United Church, the Calgary Winter Club, the Rosemont Community, the Original Calgarians and the Earl Grey Golf Club.
