Patricia Joan Dennis
It is with deep sadness that the family of Patricia Joan Dennis announces her passing on Monday, May 23, 2022, at the age of 77 in Kamloops, BC. Pat is survived by her husband of 59 years, David, her son, Ryan, and her daughter Kim. Pat is also survived by her sister Dolly, and her brother in-laws, Al (Josie), Bob (Jeannette) and Don (Maureen) as well as their children.
Pat was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba on January 4, 1945. She was a Winnipeg Blue Bomberette cheerleader when she met her love of her life, Dave. Pat and Dave were married on April 4, 1963. Shortly after, they moved to Port Alberni and then Kitimat, Fort Frances and they finally settled in Kamloops.
After raising her two children and volunteering in their various sports and activities, Pat landed her dream job at the Provincial Air Tanker Center where she worked for twenty-seven years. Pat loved the people she worked with, and she was a valued employee.
Although Pat’s retirement was not what she had dreamed about due to her failing health, she spent many happy years visiting with neighbours and friends who stopped by to chat. She loved sitting outside with Dave and supervising his gardening. Pat enjoyed crosswords, puzzles on her phone, happy hour with white wine, her trips to the casino and time with her children.
Pat loved her family dearly and wanted to help us all in whatever way she could. Tributes have been coming in describing her as lovely, kind, caring, wonderful, beautiful, welcoming, and special. She was all of those and more. She is now breathing easy, resting, and watching over us. She will never be forgotten.
The family would like to thank the many doctors and nurses that helped mom over the years and during her stays at Royal Inland Hospital. We also have great appreciation for her numerous Home Care workers over the years.
In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations be made to the Royal Inland Hospital (RIH) Foundation in Pat’s name.
As per Pat’s request, there will not be a service. Cremation arrangements in care of Drake Cremation and Funeral Services. Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting DrakeCremation.com
