Barbara Rawluk

It was a very special occasion to spend time with Pat and old friends on her birthday in December 2015. I first met Pat when she volunteered for the organizing committee of the very first County of Strathcona Homemakers Conference. Her infectious enthusiasm, energy and get it done demeanour was an inspiration to me then and continued to be as I was fortunate to spend nearly nine years working along side her and her good humour at FCSS. We joyfully connected every few years since and will one day connect joyfully again. Blessings to her beautiful family! Barb.

We always appreciated Pat’s ongoing support of Ken as a teacher, and the Volleyball Program . Providing two great volleyball players in Mariann and Margo. Our heartfelt sympathy goes out to the family. Pat was a genuine Lady.
