Patricia Mary Babineau slipped away peacefully on February 15, 2013. Patricia was born on March 31, 1927 at her parents’ farm home in Dunblane, Saskatchewan. She attended a one-room school until grade 8 and after completing high school she entered St. Paul’s Hospital School of Nursing where she earned her Registered Nurse designation.
In 1953, Patricia (nee McPherson) married John Edward Babineau. Together they raised their family; moving from Saskatchewan to Manitoba and finally to B.C.; however, they always spent their summers at their beloved cottage at Bird Lake, Manitoba.
In 1981 John and Pat retired to their dream log home in the 108 Mile Ranch where they spent many years enjoying golf, curling, and community living.
Patricia’s passions in life were her nursing career, her golf, her puppies, and above all her family. People were drawn to her quick wit and sense of humour which is why they enjoyed spending time with her. She loved to share a laugh and enjoyed her crosswords, card games, scrabble and puzzles. She was a spark! And she will be profoundly missed.
She was predeceased by her husband John, son Jamie John, and siblings: Bill, Ruth, Kenneth, Cluny, Maureen and Kathleen. She will be lovingly remembered by her sons: Lindsay John (Mary Lindsay) and Donald Kenneth (Michele), her grandchildren: Jessica, John, Lauren, Ken, Jordan, and Oliver.
A celebration of ‘Princess’ Patricia’s life will be held at 108 Community Hall on Saturday, February 23, 2013 at 2:00 p.m.
