Pat was born in Kitchener but than moved to Brussels with her parents. She than met the love of her life John Engel. They were married and had 3 children David, Pamela and Judy. Pat lived in the village of Cranbrook until she moved up to Huronlea in March of this year. It took her a bit of adjusting but she soon settled in and made new friends. Pat was well known in her community, spending years as a bartender/waitress in the Brussels Hotel. She did not take any shit from anyone! She loved knitting, baking, painting pictures, drawing. She was very crafty and creative. She was a force who was very involved in her family’s life’s. Ask any of the grand kids and they will show you how to make a Gramma Pat special (whiskey, on the strong side).

Pat’s strong will and dedication to her family will continue to inspire those who had the privilege of knowing her.

Cremation has taken place.

A celebration of Pat’s Life will take place at a later date.
