Patricia Anne Konkin

July 3, 1943 - June 14, 2012



It is with profound sadness we announce the peaceful passing of our cherished wife, mother, grandmother and sister, Patricia Konkin on the morning of June 14, 2012, after a lengthy and courageous battle with cancer. She was at home surrounded by her family.
Patti was born on July 03, 1943 in Winnipeg, Manitoba to Edward and Michelle Ostrow. In 1954, the family moved to Vancouver. B.C.
Upon graduation from high school, Patti entered the Registered Nursing Program at St. Pauls Hospital, from where she graduated in 1964. After her marriage to Fred, they moved briefly to Quesnel before settling in Duncan where they raised their four daughters.
Patti will be sadly missed by her husband of 46 years, Dr. Fred Konkin, daughters Tanya (Bryan), Trish (John), and Stephanie (Jeff); grandchildren Danielle, Adam, Victoria and Olivia, sisters Jacquie, Janice and brother Tom along with many nieces, nephews and cousins.
Patti was predeceased by her youngest daughter Christa in 2001, parents Edward in 2001 and Michelle in 2012.
Patti was a loving and devoted wife, mother and grandmother to her four children and four grandchildren. She greatly treasured her times spent with her family and many friends. Patti was also known for her kindness, her strength, her sense of humour and her quick smile. She was also an accomplished artist. Her other interests included a lifelong love of animals and she had been known to rescue those in need.
