Patricia Thomas

THOMAS- Patricia (nee Richards). Passed away October 7, 2017 in her 97th year. Precious wife of the late Richard, and cherished mother of Mary Win (deceased) and Jane/Siân.  Predeceased by her much loved parents, brothers and sisters.  Pat was a natural teacher, both of her own children and hundreds of first-graders at DeWitt Carter and Elm Street schools.  Difficulties and problems were, to her, something you weathered and ‘got on with’.  Good times were to be savoured.  Pat’s wit could be dry or wacky; her wisdom, practical.  Her spirits soared with her visits ‘down home’ to Millbrook (nr. Peterborough) and she was fiercely Canadian.  At the same time, she embraced Dick’s love of Wales and was a great supporter of all things Welsh. Cremation has taken place. Arrangements entrusted to the DAVIDSON FUNERAL HOME 135 Clarence Street, Port Colborne. A Service of Remembrance will be held at First Presbyterian Church, 176 Elm Street, Port Colborne on Saturday, October 14, 2017 at 1:30 p.m.  In lieu of flowers, donations to First Presbyterian Church or Sleeping Children Around the World ( would be appreciated.
