In Celebration of

Patricia Graham

October 17, 1934 -  April 27, 2019

Patricia Aunna Marie Graham, age 84, passed away on April 27th, 2019 in Mississauga. From her birth in Kitchener, Ontario on October 17th, 1934, to her passing, Patricia nourished everyone around her with love and a warm smile - exemplifying her selfless character. Patricia was the youngest of seven children. She married William (Bill) Graham on May 29th, 1959 and a family of six beautiful girls soon followed.
Bill and Patricia shared a great love for the outdoors and enjoyed summers and holidays with family and friends at their cottage and farm on the Bruce Peninsula. She adored animals of all types, loved the family pets and joined Bill in the horse & carriage events which took them to various locations in Canada and the USA.
Patricia is survived by her loving husband Bill of 59 years, five daughters Laura, Julie, Kate, Natasha and Nicole, son in laws Gregory Hood, Justin Iwanicha and Michael Shaw and her four grandchildren – Madeleine, Graham, Justin and Elliot. Predeceased by her daughter Sandra Claire Sears. Patricia was beautiful on the inside and out. She never had an unkind word to say about anyone and had a passion for life and making others happy and feel loved. She made her house a home, her cottage a place no one wanted to leave and the family camping and hiking excursions full of adventures. All those who were fortunate enough to have met her can attest she was an incredibly special lady and the love of Bill’s life.
On Wednesday May 1st, 2019, family and friends whose lives Patricia touched are invited to celebrate her life and the inspirational legacy of wife, sister, mother, grandmother and friend that she leaves behind, at the Turner & Porter Neweduk-Erin Mills Chapel, 1981 Dundas Street West, Mississauga, from 2 p.m. until the time of the Service of Remembrance in the Chapel at 3 p.m. For those who wish, donations may be made to the Alzheimer Society.

Dear Bill. I am so sorry to hear about Pat. She certainly was the love of your life as you were to her.
I have many memories of the Classic and Southern Pines of you and the Whartons. Those certainly were very special times.
Once Christi is back, we will get in touch and get together for lunch.
I'm sending hugs.

Mrs. Graham was a beautiful lady, inside and out. I'm blessed to have shared many years of cottage fun with the family, and I know Mom so enjoyed being with Pat as they dealt with the shenanigans of the kids and the two Bills. Hairy Safari's were so much fun!!

Please accept my heartfelt sympathy and sending extra love to Bill.

I will lovingly remember my moments shared with the lovely Miss Patricia! Boy we had great times filled with so much laughter💘. I am indebted to Pat for sharing a back seat for 10 days during our unforgettable trip to Newfoundland. Boy she kept a neat house back there💃💕. I am fortunate to have so many wonderful memories to grab hold of.
Love, Christi Wharton

Dear Bill, Laura, Julie, Kate, Jenny and Nicole,

We were saddened by the passing of Pat and I pray that you will take comfort in the many beautiful memories of a wonderful wife and mother. She had the patience of Job and a heart that was so loving and generous. Treasure all the wonderful memories and let them wash upon you as they will from time to time, without too much grief and sadness. She will live on in your memories and the next generation as well.
