She worked as a professional potter for many years.  Pat was a member of Masters Swimming Canada and she won numerous awards, including holding a world relay record.  One of Pat’s greatest joys was travelling with her husband across Canada and around the world, including Egypt, Japan, Cuba, Costa Rica, England, and Wales.
