1941 ~ 2017
Patricia Dawson took her last breath with her family at her side at Beausejour Hospital on Sunday, March 19, 2017 at 4:06 in the morning at the age of 75. She was born in Winnipeg at the Women’s Pavillion on July 13, 1941.
She is survived by her son Kevin (Brenda), and his daughters Denee and Danika, son Cameron (Cheryl), brothers Ron Chercoe, and Terry (Lynn) Chercoe and her sister Donna Hlady. She was predeceased by her parents Nicholas and Sophie Chercoe, husband Rene (Joe) Dawson, special friend Joseph Marynewich, brother in-law Frank Hlady and sister in-law Helen Chercoe.
Patricia was a Stay at Home mom who was an excellent cook and baker; canning pickles, making jams, cookies, pies, pizzas and homemade TV diners. She was an excellent seamstress, sewing countless dresses and outfits on her Singer Sewing Machine. The buzzing of the machine was a familiar sound in our home. She enjoyed playing card games, playing bingo, and travelling. She liked to watch the birds and had a number of bird feeders set up so she could view them from the living room couch. She was stricken with rheumatoid arthritis at the age of 36. It was a major adjustment for her as she looked for a new equilibrium.
The family would like to thank the staff of Stony Plains, East Gate Lodge and Beausejour Hospital for all their care and compassion. We would like to thank the staff at Beausejour Hospital the night mom passed for their exceptional care and compassion during our mom’s final hours. A special thank you to her special friend Eleanor Voss for all her support. As well as Barb and Al Merkel for taking and being a part of our mom’s life in so many ways.
We’d also like to thank mom’s sister Donna Hlady who was always there throughout mom’s life. She was everything and did everything for mom. We love you Auntie Donna, and so did mom.
A Celebration of Patricia’s life will be held at Tyndall Community Centre on Saturday, March 25 at 11:00 a.m.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to a charity of one’s choice.Print This Obituary & Condolences
