Pat was an inspiration to many people, young and old alike. She was always a trusted individual who was counted on by many.

She will be missed.

She has left a tremendous legacy.

Condolence from Sandra Newton on January 20th, 2010 5:00 PM

Dear Bob and family,
It was with great sadness that I read about your beloved wife, mother, grandmother’s passing. It is so difficult to say farwell to one you love and who has added so much to your lives. I met Pat at Heartland Credit Union several weeks ago where she shared with me her fight with cancer. I was truly upset to know this fine lady had this to deal with. ‘What no one ever saw or heard, what no one ever thought could happen, is the very thing God prepared for those who love him.’ 1 Corinthians 2:9 I pray that all your wonderful memories over the years will substain you through your loss.

I am so sorry to hear of Pat’s passing. I had the privilege of getting to know Pat when we were learning about and using Circles together to address community conflict. I remember her as being such a bright and dynamic spirit…so grounded and wise…so open to new ideas…and, with a twinkle in her eye, so ready to find the humour in life. I was inspired by Pat and have felt such admiration and respect for her as a leader, and as well for her love and commitment to those around her – to her community. I am so sorry for the loss of one so special, loved by so many, and who has had made a real difference in this world. My thoughts and prayers are with you, her family.

Condolence from Linda Russell on January 21st, 2010 10:49 AM

Bob, girls and families,
I am deeply saddened that Pat lost her valiant battle that she fought with her notable determination & strength. As she was involved in so many areas of community life outside of her family life, there will be a huge emptiness felt by many that share in the sorrow of your loss. I personally will greatly miss Pat, her energy & committment at the spring rummage sales and at church, of course. It’s been an honour & an inspiration to have worked with her on the organizing team for the past 10 years. May you find comfort knowing Pat is with God and found peace. We hope that many fond, precious memories and support of family & friends will give you comfort & ease the profound sadness in your hearts. Keeping you in our thoughts & prayers,
Linda & Bill Russell

Dear Patti,
I met your mom and dad last year at the Cancer Centre. My son was undergoing treatments too at that time. Your mom and I had a wonderful conversation together discussing education philosphies. In that brief encounter, I realized what a dynamic and wonderful human being your mom was. I had hoped that we would one day meet again. Please accept my sincere sympathy to your dad and entire family at this difficult time.

Dear Bob, Family and Community
To have one person weave her goodness into so many of our lives is truly an inspiration. Lets celebrate her life and her gifts to us with the many memories and find peace in each other.

To Pat’s family.
My sincere condolenses to all of you at this very sad time in your lives. I shall always remember Pat as a very committed, caring and cheerful woman. We first met when she served on our VON Perth-Huron Board of Directors and she fulfilled this role with passion and integrity. And her humour – we always found something to laugh about. I know you will all miss her greatly. Patti it has been years, but whenever I met your Mom she was sure to update me. Take care and treasure all the wonderful memories.

Shirley Hanlon

Condolence from Jim & Donna Fischer on January 23rd, 2010 1:38 PM

Dear Bob & family,

We were sorry to learn of Pat’s passing. We both remember our earlier meeting times when you & Pat were facilitators offering the “Partners In Success” course for farming couples – like ourselves.

You both were wonderful role models to young farmers just starting out. (We are older now and retired from dairy farming.)

We think of you in prayers and may Pat’s memories be cherished forever and in the coming days.

God Bless!

Jim & Donna Fischer

Dear Bob and Family
I was saddened to hear of Pat’s illness and now of her passing. During my many years as your tenant I always knew that Pat cared when I called about something. I always thought of you and her as friends. You have my sympathy.

Hi to all
Just got home from holidays and saw that pat lost her battle. My deepest condolences to everyone. I enjoyed the many chances that our paths crossed….ball field, church, life, etc. Thinking of you all at this time.

Hello One and All in the Immediate and Extended Marshall Family
I read in the St.Marys paper today that Pat has died. We hadn’t seen much of each other since we played ball together in Kirkton and still her death was a shock to me. I just want to send my condolences to you all, and Pat, May You Rest in Peace.

Sorry to hear about the passing of Pat.
I met her when I was working at the Exeter Times-Advocate and admired her enthusiasm and sincerity.
My deepest sympathies.

Condolence from Marilyn Lutchman on February 6th, 2010 9:23 AM

I was truly saddened to learn of your loss as I was going through the process of saying good- bye to my father. My deepest sympathies for the loss of your mother to all 4 daughters as I knew you all through highschool and some years later. I recall the one year playing slo-pitch with Cyndi and Barb and your mom on the “Downtown Dollies” team.

My thoughts to you and your families from my family,

Marilyn Lutchman(Brand)

To the Down family:
I tried to send a message earlier but I think I failed.
I apologize for not being able to attend the funeral. My medical problems have left me in a positon where I am unable to walk or even to stand in line.
I didn’t know Pat very well but she always seemed to have the time to smile and say hello. I recall where she had a party fo the Cross Country when Patti was a budding star.
All of the girls were smart and stood up or themselves. This was a relection of the good parenting they received.
May I pass on my best wishes to the entire family.
