    I am very sad to hear Pat has passed away, but am glad to have known her. I remember fondly our time together in Mexico … meals together, walks, fun conversations and our outdoor yoga class. I found her a loving, beautiful, inspiring woman … a ray of sunshine. Thinking of you all. Much love. Helen (London)

    Hello Linda, Ron and extended families,
    We are so sorry to hear about your loss. Although we have not had a lot of contact for several years, I have many memories of the early days with Pat and Ron, my cousin Linda and Robbie. 50 years ago Pat was ahead of her time on promoting health and wellness and making us drink “Tiger Shakes”. They tasted horrible but she told us it was good for us, so we had to drink them. It definitely was an acquired taste. I have several of her paintings in my home that I get to enjoy every day. Her spirit will live on, only her physical presence has left us. We are sending love to all of Pat’s family including my Dad and Mom and Aunt Florence and Jim.
    Michael and Beverlee Chasse (Laidlaw), Brandon & Geny, Hunter and Mack.

  13. I am so sorry to hear the sad news that Pat has passed away.
    She was a loyal client at my day spa during her summers on Mayne Island. I loved pampering her and had wonderful conversations with her. She had beautiful skin and always looked amazing. We also saw each other often at our favourite local restaurant – The Wild Fennel with her wonderful husband.
    Sadly I had to close my spa over 5 years ago and lost touch with Pat.
    My heart goes out to her husband and to her family and friends.

    Pat was so very special to me, as I read she was special to so many others. I felt so fortunate to have her as a friend, teacher and role model. I loved her and loved being around her. Being able to spend time with Ron and Linda just made it all that much more amazing. I’m going to miss her but, as I know she would wish, I will focus on my appreciation and gratitude for having had her in my life. Also sending my best love and heartfelt condolences to Ron and Linda. Hugs, Deb

  22. When I was a little girl, I used to love seeing Pat at Chapter F functions. She always called me a term of endearment –– “sweetie”. She was the quintessential woman and gracious lady in my eyes. She was elegant in body and soul. As I write this, I am wistfully looking at one of her beautiful paintings/prints that has graced this room for about 40 years. I am so sorry that she has passed away but her spirit will live on through her art and family. Ron, Linda, and family, please accept my sincere condolences. Ann Jones.
