Patricia was born March 17, 1934, in Winnipeg, Manitoba. She married the love her life, John Isliefson, on February 7, 1953. Together they raised their two children, Judy and Allan.

Patricia loved spending summers with family and great friends at the family cottage at Netley Creek. She also enjoyed travelling with John to Florida to see their daughter Judy and her family. Patricia had a green thumb, and she was known to rescue plants she found and bring them back to beautiful and thriving. She was funny, she was a great cook, she loved cats, and being with her family, friends, and friends that became family.

Patricia was a wonderful woman. She was always a “glass half full person” with a genuinely happy heart. Her greatest love was that of family and friends. Her love of life was contagious. She was always able to see the bright side of any situation, and always had a genuine happy smile. She never met a person that she could not find something to like about.

Patricia will be forever in our hearts and in our memories.

As per Patricia’s wishes, a private gathering celebrating her life will be held at a later date.
