PATRICIA (PATSY) GAYLE LAWRIE (published on February 25, 2009)

PATRICIA (PATSY) GAYLE LAWRIE March 21, 1947 - February 22, 2009 On February 22, 2009, Patricia (Patsy) Lawrie's courageous two year battle to be free of cancer ended peacefully at home. Patsy will be eternally remembered, and missed by her loving husband Terry; her daughter Susan (Patrick); sons Tom (Teresa); Bob (Leanne); her grandsons Bode and Aksel; and her mother, Helen Watt. Patsy attended King George V School and graduated from Windsor Park Collegiate. Patsy was very spiritual and viewed life with optimism; even in the most difficult of times she would smile; she never complained, and forever believed in the power of positive thinking in healing. Patsy had an inner strength and determination that gave hope to those around her. Patsy attended her prayer group that was so positive in her healing process. Patsy was kind and loving, and especially enjoyed her grandchildren. She had a love for the ocean, travel, and loved to cook and bake for the family. She spent hours enjoying her favourite cooking channel shows. She knew the names of just about every plant in the greenhouse and loved to garden. She enjoyed art, and in her spare time painted, dabbled with acoustic guitar, and tried her hand at a number of crafts over the years. Patsy belonged to the Womens' Institute in Dufresne and spent many enjoyable hours with the ladies of the farm community. The family would like to thank all the neighbours and friends for their support, her prayer group Sam, Anne Marie, Bill, Carol, Glenn and Ken. Thanks also for the support of many friends from the MLCC, and the girls from Patsy's office. Special thanks to the staff from CancerCare including the nurses from the chemotherapy unit, Darlene, doctors Lotocki, Popowich, Deen and Krepart who all helped to make her journey more comfortable. The family is also grateful to Ann Plett and the other health care professionals from the South East Health Region. A service will be held at St. James United Church, 234 Parkview Street on Friday, February 27 at 11:00 a.m. Flowers are gratefully declined. Any donations can be made to CancerCare Manitoba for ovarian cancer research and patient care, or a charity of your choice. Expressions of sympathy may be made at: KNYSH FUNERAL CHAPEL Family Owned and Operated 1161C Fife St 582-0973
