Patti Nocente (nee Merry) left us peacefully on October 3, 2018 in her 94th year. Her husband for over 50 years. Otello, passed away in 2002. She is survived by her 4 children. Daniel (Pauline), Helen, Catherine & Paula (Jerry). She has lO grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren. Born in Nelson, B.C.
She grew up in Trail, and as an adult moved to Vancouver where she worked as a lab technician at St. Paul’s Hospital. Her early married life was spent in a duplex on 16th Avenue in Vancouver. In the 1960s Patti and Otello built a house in Burnaby where they moved their young family and lived there for over 50 years. She was an expert sewer, loved gardening, stained glass, rock hounding, and most of and reading. She was always learning something new and in her later years she wrote a book on our family genealogy. There are many lives she enhanced with her kindness, gentleness and generosity.
A special thanks goes to her companion Marcelle, niece Cynthia and John B. who was the go to man whenever she needed help and to her dear friends Marion and Isabel. Also, thanks to the staff at Amica who loved her dearly.
A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
