Beloved mother of Sandra (Geoff Farrell) of Kincardine, Holly (Jim St. Antoine) of Dorchester, Laura (Brian Ross) of Kincardine, and Kathleen (Glenn Wells) of Innisfil. Grandma of Thomas and Becca Farrell, Jonathon and Siobhan Farrell, Jacob (Lindsay) Farrell, Patrick Farrell, Shannon (Emily) Ross, and Melissa Ross; and G.G. of Everett, Arlo and Charlotte Farrell.

Pat was born June 12, 1942, near Ayr, Ontario, the third of seven children. In 1966, she and Clarence moved with their two young daughters, to their farm near Tiverton. During their 29 years there, they added two more daughters and made many memories. In 1995, they retired to Ripley, where Pat became greatly involved in the community, especially enjoying competing in the fall fair – both by herself and with her grandchildren. Gardening was another joy, and she made many friends in the Ripley and District Horticultural Society. Pat was known by many as the “Barbie Doll Lady” for her delicate doll clothes, and enjoyed many handcrafts including embroidery and quilting. Throughout her life, Pat was very involved in church life, and enjoyed sharing her faith with others, including her family. A memorial service will be held at the Kincardine Baptist Church, 569 Queen Street, Kincardine, Saturday, March 28, 2020. Visitation will begin at 12:30 p.m., with the service to follow at 2 p.m. Spring interment, Ripley Cemetery.
