In Loving Memory of
Patricia Georgie Plaxton Airth Woodrow
Patricia courageously battled a lengthy illness. After a brief stay in the Port Hardy Hospital, she passed away peacefully on August 15, 2010 with Family by her side.
Pat was born in Toronto, Ontario on August 2, 1936. She was the eldest of four children. In her early teenage years her family moved to Calgary, Alberta where she completed high school and went on to graduate from the ‘Fine Arts School’ of Alberta. She was employed by Birks, The Banff Springs Hotel and as a dental assistant to name a few.
She was married to Garth for a number of years and they raised their three children in Calgary, Alberta; Germany and Victoria, BC.
While in Victoria Pat went on to Graduate from Camosun College. After returning to Calgary, she was employed by Texas Petroleum. In the late 90’s Pat came to Port Hardy to visit her daughter and family and eventually chose to reside there. She had many fond memories of the warm and caring people she grew to know during that time.
During her lifetime Pat had enjoyed traveling, skiing, golfing, sewing and raising her family. She had a keen interest in and a knack for Interior Design. She was quick witted and was always willing to share her knowledge and advice if asked. She had a great love of children and always managed to light up a room with her smile and laughter. One of her greatest joys in life was her family and spending time with them no matter where she was. Pat will be dearly missed but will forever be held close in our Hearts.
