Pat Demers fought a brave battle with cancer, surpassing all timelines her doctors suggested, but she succumbed in her sleep, peacefully, on Wednesday, November 2, 2016, at the Edith Cavell Care Centre in Lethbridge, at the age of 70.

Pat is predeceased by her parents, Jesse and Margaret Matlock, of Lethbridge, AB.

She leaves behind her loving, faithful husband of 49 years, Donat Demers, three daughters, Lisa (Richard) Brodowski of Maple Ridge, BC; Jennifer (Roldo) Eliason of Lethbridge, AB and Erin (Steve) Hyatt of Frankfurt, Germany.

‘Gramma Pat’ will be lovingly remembered by her grandchildren: James Demers, Stephanie and Ryan Brodowski; Brendon, Laura, Mariah and Hannah Eliason and Rowan Hyatt, and one great-grandchild, Nevaeh Eliason not to mention another one on the way in the Spring, whom we’re sure she will meet before we ever do.

She was a gem of a sister to her two brothers; John (Corrine) Matlock of Libby, Montana and Tim Matlock (Linda Jensen) of Red Deer, AB. She also leaves behind several aunts and uncles, nieces and nephews, cousins and friends. She touched more lives that we will ever really know, especially in her various roles with the Health Care system in Lethbridge.

Her love of life and people made an indelible impression on the lives of all those who knew her. There was always room for one more at the dinner table, and in her heart. Pat was a compassionate, thoughtful and honorable woman who loved her family. She will forever be remembered as a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, sister, great-grandmother, aunt and friend.

The family would like to thank Dr. Jack Haberman for his excellent care and friendship over the years as well as Dr. Shukkoor and the nurses and staff at Edith Cavell for their care.

In lieu of flowers, please donate generously to your favorite charitable organization.

A Prayer Service will be held at CORNERSTONE FUNERAL HOME, 2800 – Mayor Magrath Drive South, Lethbridge, on Tuesday, November 8th, 2016 at 7:00 P.M., with Francis & Cybele Noronha officiating.

One Condolence for “DEMERS, Patricia”

    Don and Family

    I was shocked and sad to hear that Pat passed away. I will never forget her friendship and kindness.

    One memory I have is Pat taking me and her gurls to Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs at the Yeats Memorial Centre in 1972. It was a good memory I hold dear.
