(January 30, 1931~August 6, 2007)
Passed away peacefully August 6, 2007 in her home in Rosedale. Patricia was the youngest of three daughters born to Rosina and John Kirton on January 30, 1931 in Brandon, Manitoba.
She was married in Victoria in October 1948 to Alfred John Mackie. They spent most of their married life on Vancouver Island raising their four children; Bob, Susan, Linda and Jim. Patricia and John were active members on the Qualicum Beach Golf Course when they first moved there in 1974. Patricia loved her time spent with the Ladies Auxiliary of the Qualicum Beach Legion and more recently with Branch # 4 in Chilliwack. Patricia was a well – loved mother and grandmother who dedicated her life in providing support to her family and friends. The joy of cooking was her passion and many a Legion bake sale as well as catered dinners have benefited from her talents.
She was predeceased by her husband John (October 2006), as well as her sisters, Maude Parrett and Bea Ross. A very special friend, Irene Ward passed on several weeks ago and we are sure that these lifelong friends will be making their journey to Heaven together!
Patricia is survived by her children; Bob (Cheryl) Mackie, Susan (Ken) Henriksen, Linda (Jim) Sache, Jim (Dawn) Mackie; sister in law, Lillian Mackie; brother in law, Roy Parrett; grandchildren, Jeannine (Stuart) Brock, Ryan (Cora) Mackie, Jacqueline (Michael) Bennett, Theresa (Blair) Carrie, Geoff (Natalie) Sache, Nicola Sache, Adam (Kelly) Sache, Stephanie and Victoria Mackie; great grandchildren, Alanna and Andrew Brock, Chase Carrie, Mya, Malachi and Mason Sache and numerous nieces and nephews.
A celebration of her life will be held at her home at 9590 Ford Rd. in Rosedale on August 25, 2007 at 1:00 pm. Anyone wishing to join this special event is welcome and encouraged to attend. Please call Jim or Linda at 604-794-0121 for more information.
Thank you to all the friends and relatives who expressed their love and friendship with visits, flowers and letters, which brought her much enjoyment.
