It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Patricia Leslie Ferguson, on September 19, 2011. Patty was born in Rossland B.C. on October 26, 1948 and is survived by her mother, Patricia Ferguson, her brother, Tom (Janet) Ferguson, sisters Marcia (Ted) Wilson, and Bev (Terry) Onyschak, along with many nieces, nephews, and friends. She was predeceased by her father, William Ferguson. Patty was a very special person and we all felt very fortunate in being part of her life. She has known daily challenges from a very young age but she never let them affect her joy of living. She was an avid animal lover and had a very gentle nature, along with a great sense of humour. She touched the lives of everyone who took the time to get to know her and she will be deeply missed. A memorial service will be held on Monday, September 26, at 1:30, followed by an afternoon tea, at “Kootenay Society for Community Living”, 2224 6th Avenue, Castlegar. If anyone wishes to make a donation, you may send your gift to the Society of Community Living in Castlegar.
A special thanks to everyone at the Society of Community Living. Patty loved all of you very much.
Cremation has taken place under the care of Castlegar Chapel.
