Patricia “Patti” Lynn Abraham passed away peacefully on May 4, 2021 after her battle with stage 4 cancer. She will be remembered by all for her contagious positive attitude and optimism, no matter the situation. Patti is survived by her mother Josephine (William Scott), brother Richard (Susan), sister Joanne Farrell (Patrick), her nieces and nephew Nicholas (Jena), Allison, Stephanie (Christopher), Jennifer, and Patricia (Stephen), and her great-nephew and niece Leon and Annie. She was like a mother to Sara Papaleo and Tayta to Delilah.
Patti was born on July 19, 1958 in Toronto to Earl and Josephine (Bardwell) Abraham. She was an alumni of Branksome Hall, Camp Oconto, and graduated from the University of Western Ontario. The majority of her career was spent with Central Graphics and the Eastwood family. Patti brought so much energy, joy, and dynamism to work every day that rubbed off on employees and customers alike. At every sales meeting they would hand out the Sales Rep of the Month award and it became a running joke as Patti won 9 out of 12 months for years running. It became the “Patti Award”.
Patti retired in 2018 and since that time found joy in travelling the world, cooking, her daily walks by the lake, and spending time with her family, friends, and neighbours. She was known for her never negative, always smiling spirit; she was a vivacious personality that could light up any room she entered. Patti’s outgoing personality was most apparent in her ability to meet and befriend nearly anyone she encountered. She was incredibly loving, compassionate, and always willing to help. Patti was loved and cherished by her family and by all those whose lives she was a part of and will be truly missed.
She will be remembered in a private Memorial Service on May 8, 2021.
