Terrible saddened by your loss.
The Janelle family have many great memories in which Pat was instrumental in helping us make.
I hope you find comfort in your happy memories.
Matthew and Katharine I am so sorry for your loss. She was so proud of both of you. I met your mom though the payroll association and we quickly became friends. We shared so many adventures over the years. I will miss her smiling face. Our Queen Mum reunions will never be the same. Smile with the angels my beautiful friend until we meet again.
I will treasure our long friendship and my time spent with Pat. She was such a special lady whose smile and energy always made wherever she was a better place. Her passion for seeing whatever she was involved with come to a successful conclusion spoke to her professionalism and desire to do her best.
The Queen Mums get togethers will never be the same without her.
Pat was our babysitter when she was a student (in university I think) and we’ve managed to stay in touch thanks to social media. Based on those early years spent together, she left such a mark with her enthusiasm and positivity that she created a special place in our hearts and memories. She was the best babysitter and a beautiful person. I’m so sorry to know she is no longer with us. She will always have a special place in our hearts.
My heart breaks for you all. I felt like I knew Patricia simply through the memories roll of heart and soul that were shared with me over the years. May her loving memory live on in our hearts. Rest In Peace. Your love and kindness will be a legacy through your family. Most sincere deepest condolences for all who were blessed to know Patricia. Xo
It was such a privilege to have worked with her in the past. She left her mark on all of us who knew her. Rest in peace my friend. Condolences to Pat’s family; she will be in our thoughts and prayers.
It is with a very heavy heart to accept that Pat is no longer here! Truly an amazing person who did everything in an exemplary way and with love: Love for the profession, love for art, love for reading, love for travel, love for music, love for food, and above all, love for her family and friends!
I will cherish every moment we spent together for the past 12 years and I consider myself so lucky to have been your friend! I will dearly miss our weekly calls and your sense of humour!
My deepest sympathy for Matthew and Katherine in these times of sorrow. You were Pat’s priority, her pride and joy!
Rest in peace dear friend!
A life well lived and loved by all…memories will keep her alive…
She had a deep and compassionate heart, loyal and devoted to her children. We enjoyed times together with her childhood friend Chris. their friendship magical across the miles and international borders for over 60 years.
Friend, mentor, colleague. Elegant and fearless. Respected payroll professional. Godspeed. I will miss you.
A mentor, a friend, a collaborator, an inspiration – Pat was all of these things and more. It was an honour to know Pat and to have collaborated with her on many initiatives, starting with the payroll profession and extending beyond that in recent years. I will miss her zest, generosity, refreshing honesty, passion for lifelong learning, unwavering support, and her laughter. She made everyone feel special. My sincere sympathies to her children and to her long list of friends.
I am so sorry to hear of Pat’s passing.
I met her through the CPA., She was an amazing person that created memories with so many.
My deepest condolences to her family.
I’ve known Pat since the past 1.5 years, coordinating her speaking engagements with the National Payroll Institute. I love this lady, we used to chat before she started my sessions, we shared many stories and it was always a good moment to talk to her. Amazing person that I cherish having known her for a short time in my life. May you rest in peace, Pat. I will miss our chats.
My heart is broken. Pat was a mentor colleague but most importantly a friend. I will miss her immensely. My deepest sympathies to Pat’s children, Matthew and Katharine, her family and many friends. Rest in peace dear friend.
I’m truly beside myself. Words can’t express how I feel. Pat was my friend and colleague. We would always share a good laugh and we had many discussions of us sharing more over wine. She was so professional and the payroll community lost a trailblazer in her field. Rest east my friend, until we meet again.
Pat was a phenomenal woman. A woman of character, grace and kindness. I will miss our conversations Pat. Your dedication to the payroll profession paved the way for so many. Heaven has gained an Angel. Rest in Eternal Peace until we meet again my friend.
Sincere sympathy to the family on your loss. May memories of happy times help comfort you now.
My condolences on Pat’s passing. I knew her through payroll and it was clear she was a well respected member of the community. I enjoyed chatting with her at conferences. She was always very engaging with a big heart and warm smile.
So sad. I just learned of Pat’s passing. She was such a major supporter and champion of the Payroll industry in Canada.
I consider myself fortunate to have crossed paths with Pat. Definitely someone to admire.
I pray you find comfort in your memories. It gets easier. My thoughts are with you all.
