PRIOR Merle Patricia (Pat) 1926 - 2006 It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Pat on May 4, 2006 after a short but valiant fight with cancer. Pat was born in Mortlach, SK on November 7, 1926 and moved to the Calgary area with her family. Being raised on a farm, she had a lifelong love of the outdoors and all animals large and small. Pat spent many years enjoying her home, her gardening and golfing with husband Bud who predeceased her in 1987. Her working career led to thirty-four years as a valued employee of the Hudson's Bay Co. until her retirement. Pat will be missed greatly by her mother Ida Goettler; her only son Garry; daughter-in-law Susan; grandsons, Sean and Rob and his wife Orlene; and ever faithful friend Tiko. A special thanks goes out to Betty and Jim Keating from our family, special friends who did so much for Pat in her final struggle. A private family memorial will be held at Calgary Crematorium Columbarium on Friday, May 12, 2006. If friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made to the Alberta Cancer Foundation c/o Tom Baker Cancer Centre, 1331 - 29 Street N.W., Calgary, AB T2N 4N2.
