January 3, 1954 - November 6, 2023
Pat was born in Penticton on January 3, 1954, and passed away in Williams Lake on November 6, 2023, after a short battle with cancer.
The Okanagan was home to Pat for many years. She had a lifetime of family and friends there. She worked for BC Livestock and on local ranches. Horses, cattle and her love of sheep were always part of her stories.
Pat and her husband Ted went on many adventures. They lived in BC, Alberta and Saskatchewan; where Pat and Ted enjoyed many days of travelling with their racehorses. They made many friends and had beautiful pictures and videos of their travels. Of course, Pat could tell you many stories of those days. Her favourite horse was Rusty Boy and he won many times. One of Pat's favourite stories was how she made Ted stop so she could pick cotton.
They loved country music and she got to see George Strait. Pat loved those days. When they got out of racing they settled into managing several different motels for the next years. When they moved back to Williams Lake, Pat decided to work with her sister. Many hours were spent together with new friends and stories made.
Pat enjoyed gardening, cross-stitching, baking and most importantly family. During the last twenty-five years, she was devoted to her husband Ted. Her other great love was her dog, Chico.
Pat is survived by her husband Ted, sons Greg and Kevin and daughter Amanda. Her grandchildren Hayden, Shayla, Emily and Ryder. Brothers Jesse (Dori), Gordon (Linda); sisters Karen (Dennis) and Teresa (Willie). Along with numerous nieces, nephews and great-nieces and nephews.
She was predeceased by her parents Jack and Frances Watts and sisters Harriet and Marion.
She will be missed dearly by all who knew and loved her.
