Patricia passed away peacefully on August 29, 2017 at the age of 78. She was predeceased by her loving husband Bernard Larbalestier. She will be sadly missed by her 4 children Monica (Brian), Angela (Don), Marie (Harold) and Julian (Stephanie), 7 grandchildren, Jennifer, Randall, Diana, Daniel, Serena, Richard, and Lauren, 2 great-grandchildren Julian and Gemma, and “sister” cousin Rita.
Patricia was born in London, England and carried her British heritage with her proudly along with her appreciation for her adopted country. Her ocean journey to Canada at the age of 17 inspired a lifelong love of ships and ocean travel. She had a kind heart and a special love for all animals, particularly those in need.
Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated 10:30 am Thursday September 07, 2017 at St. Mary’s Catholic Church, 5251 Joyce Street, Vancouver, BC.
The family would like to thank Dr. Natalia Ciapryna for her truly wonderful care of Patricia during the last year of her life. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the BCSPCA.
