PATRICIA JUNE WHITLOCK passed away peacefully on Saturday, January 1, 2022 at 90 years of age.

Patricia was born on June 27, 1931 in Taber to Fred and Doris Sparks, where she grew up and went to school. Pat became a school teacher in Vauxhall, she married Colin Whitlock in 1951, and they farmed together while Pat still taught school. They retired in 1988 and moved to Lethbridge, giving them the opportunity to travel extensively and truly enjoy life. They golfed and skied well into their 60’s. They had two sons, Terry who lives in Lethbridge, and Alan who lives in Kelowna. Colin passed away in October of 2012. Pat was very hospitable and will be dearly missed by many people besides her family.

Pat was predeceased by her parents, brother Morgan Sparks of Lethbridge and sisters Rita Becker of Lethbridge and Kay Hirsche of Pasadena, California.

She is survived by her sons Terry (Sharon) and Alan (Marlene), grandsons Wesley and Wade of Victoria, BC, and three great-grandsons, Grayson, Aiden, and Hunter, as well as sisters Lil Brandley and Arlene Airedale of Pasadena, California. Pat was an active Jehovah’s Witness, and was engaged in volunteer work throughout her life.
