Patsy was a proud graduate of the Toronto Hospital for Sick Children (’69) and loved every day of her 43 years of nursing, touching the lives of many patients and colleagues. After transitioning from paediatrics, Patsy worked as a family practice nurse for Doctors Raes and Costin in Burlington. She recently celebrated her 20th anniversary at the Kenilworth Family Practice Team in Hamilton, working primarily with Dr. Ken Burgess, as well as with Doctors Blew, Cree, Davis and Zrinscak. Patsy spent a lifetime caring for others and over the past nine months was herself cared for and guided by the dedicated, compassionate and professional staff at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre and the Odette Cancer Centre. We send our highest praise and sincere appreciation to Doctors Brenneman, Ko and Selby and to the nursing and medical support staff of the in-patient Medical (C2) and Surgical (D6) Oncology wards. A very special thank you also to nurses Julie Diemert and Tanya Haines, Maria Waldron and Kellie Watts, who were instrumental in both the professional and personal care Patsy received while in hospital and at home. Patsy’s was a life lived with much laughter and love. She will be missed by all who knew her. …
