The family wishes to let everyone know that we lost an important person from our lives. Pat passed away peacefully on the evening of January 4, 2013, at the age of 92.
Pat was born on May 27, 1920. Pat was married to Bill (passed 1984) in 1944. They ranched in the Sullivan Valley area (Heffley Creek) for over 50 years.
They were founding members of the North Thompson Fall Fair, and were active in many agricultural organizations and the 4-H movement.
Pat was an avid reader, writer and ranching historian. She spent many years as a volunteer with the Kamloops Museum. Pat, along with her late husband Bill, were inducted into the Cowboy Hall of Fame in 2006.
