Paddy Kress (née Brangam) incomparable woman of charm, wit and great beauty, died in Toronto on 25 January 2019. Fittingly for a woman from a Scots-Irish family, Paddy chose to depart this world on the birthday of Robert Burns, giving her family and friends the opportunity to have a drink in her honour in perpetuity.
Paddy was born in Coleraine, Northern Ireland, on 17 February 1948: a loving and beloved wife, mother, grandmother (Morai), dear sister and devoted friend, she leaves behind Edward, her husband of over 40 years, her only son Morgan and his wife Tiffany, whom she cherished as a daughter, her adored grandchildren, Emily Elizabeth and Hunter Edward, her sisters Dorothy and Roberta and relatives, legions of friends and ardent admirers in Canada, the United States and across the Atlantic and the Pacific.
The family will be receiving visitors at the Turner & Porter Yorke Chapel, 2347 Bloor Street West, on Saturday, 2 February, from 1 until 4 o’clock in the afternoon.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations to the Toronto General & Western Hospital Foundation would be appreciated. (tgwhf.ca/tribute or 416-603-5300)
