Patricia Elsie Bridger
November 20, 1932 – August 13, 2017
It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Patricia Bridger on Sunday, August 13, 2017.
Patricia is predeceased by her husband of 61 years, Gerald Bridger; son, Nicholas; and brother, Frederick.
She will be lovingly remembered by her children, James Bridger (Anne-Marie), Elizabeth Outten (Reig), Ian Bridger (Julie), Manon Greer (Daniel), Tomas Bridger (Cathy), and Scott Bridger (Kathy); grandchildren, Liam Bridger, Michele Bridger, Jeremy Bridger, Jerri Benjamin, Sam Benjamin, Trevor Bridger, and Ethan Bridger.
With her husband Gerald, Patricia emigrated from England in 1956, setting up a home in Montreal. Always adventurous, together they moved the family to interesting locations around Canada and the world, including Caracas Venezuela, and Santa Maria California.
They found Qualicum Beach, B.C. the idyllic location to spend their retirement years, walking the trails, regardless of the weather, with their beloved dogs Rudy and Harry.
Patricia enjoyed time spent with family, friends and neighbours. A good book and a cup of tea were always a close companion.
Giving her time generously, with a lifetime of service and dedication to the Girl Guides organization, she played many roles, from a Guide in England to District Commissioner in Ontario.
Among her many other interests, Pat was an active participant in the Grasshopper Club and a member of the Kemptville Rug Hooking Guild.
A Celebration of Life in Patricia’s honour will be held at 10:00am on Friday, September 22, 2017 in the Serenity Room at Yates Memorial Services, 1000 Allsbrook Rd, Parksville, B.C.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Alzheimers Society of Canada or the charity of your choice.
