Patricia Down

Dear Mum, you will be missed by so many whose lives you touched. You were a ‘nanny’ to every neighbourhood child, a talented knitter who, through charities, contributed hundreds of sweaters to the needy children of the world and a wonderful cook whose pies and cakes graced many a table. You also possessed an enviable ‘green thumb’ creating beautiful gardens with Dad wherever you lived.


You have left behind a husband of 57 years, 5 children and 5 grandchildren. We all adored you and deeply mourn our loss but we’ll remember the joy, laughter and delight you brought to our lives for so many years. You were so precious to us and we will hold you in our hearts always.


Mum passed away at VGH surrounded by her entire family – there will be no funeral upon request.
