Patricia Anne Roy of Lafleche, SK and formerly of Glentworth, SK passed away on Wednesday, April 28, 2021, at the age of 88 years. She was born on the farm in the Limerick district on June 9, 1932 to Charlie and Kay (Mackenzie) Free. In 1941, she moved with her parents and brother Ken to Melaval, SK. Here she graduated high school and then went onto Normal School earning her teaching certificate. On July 1, 1952 she married Gilbert Roy. They made their home on the farm in the Glentworth district until September 2009, when they moved to Lafleche, sadly Gilbert passed away on October 24, 2009. She was a member of the United Church, Legion Auxiliary, Senior Bowlers, and Senior’s Club in Glentworth. She enjoyed sewing, crocheting, knitting, painting, reading, gardening, puzzles, bingo, and scrabble which she often enjoyed playing against herself. Her favorite place to spend time was in her flower garden and the wide-open space of the prairie, especially on the back road. On March 16, 2021 Pat’s health forced her to relocate to Assiniboia to be closer to healthcare and family. Pat would like to leave this message to her family…It would take more pages than War and Peace to tell you what our family has meant to me. Suffice to say you have been my life.
Pat was predeceased by her beloved husband of 57 years Gilbert Roy; parents Charles and Kathleen Free; brother Ken; sisters-in-law, Terry, Simone and Rolly; brothers-in-law Rene and Claude; granddaughter April and great-granddaughter Shania. Pat is survived by her loving family; son Chuck (Colleen) Roy of Glentworth, SK; daughter Aileen (Richard) Pilsner of Assiniboia, SK; son, Rick (Linda) of Regina, SK; and daughter, Shannon (Todd) Chattington of Belliveau Cove, NS; precious grandchildren and their families: numerous relatives and friends.
