In Loving Memory Of

Patricia Read


Pat Read, resident of Grande Prairie, formerly of Winnipeg, MB, passed away on Monday, January 8, 2018 at Points West Hospice at the age of 62 years.

Pat was born July 14, 1955 to Sidney and Annie Read in Winnipeg. She was raised both abroad in Germany and at home in Manitoba. With her dad being in the Army, they moved around a lot while growing up. Pat worked for many years as a waitress, ranch hand, truck driver, and more recently as a school bus driver for Peace Wapiti School Division No.76.

Pat was always smiling and encouraging, made friends wherever she went and was an animal magnet. She was very positive, despite many difficulties in life. She enjoyed pottery, crafting, painting and writing poetry.

Pat will be sadly missed by her daughter Barb Eyre of Grande Prairie; granddaughter Katie Eyre-Saunders of Altona, MB; sister Carolyn (Kirk) Bailey of Apalachin, NY and their children Blake (Elizabeth) Bailey and Sarah (David) Konitz; brother Peter Read (Janis Gillam) of Winnipeg, MB and their children Jennifer (Mike) Walsh of Manitoba and Christopher Read (Michelle LeGrand) of BC; “sister by choice” and best friend Sydney (James) Fletcher and their children Linnea, Clinton, Hannah, Emma and Stephen of Grande Prairie.

A Celebration of Life Service will be held on Tuesday, January 23, 2018 at 11:30am at Westpointe Community Church (in basement) (11305 Pinnacle Blvd.) in Grande Prairie.

Donations may be made in memory of Pat Read to Points West Hospice (c/o Grande Prairie Hospice Palliative Care Society Box 21215, Grande Prairie, AB T8V 6W7).

In Loving Memory of

Patricia Read
