PATRICIA MUMBY 1925 ~ 2023
Patricia “Pat” Grace Mumby of Medicine Hat passed away on Sunday, October 15, 2023, at the age of 98 years, beloved wife of the late Vernon Mumby.
Pat was born on October 1, 1925, in Calgary, to Wyman and Gladys Johnson and grew up in the Turner Valley area. In 1944, at the age of 19, Pat enlisted with the Canadian Women’s Army Corp, serving in the north, and was discharged in 1946. After the war she met Vern and they were married in 1950, in Okotoks, Alberta. Working in the oil patch they relocated frequently, living in various towns in central Alberta. Vern and Pat retired to Turner Valley, then Vernon, BC and finally to Medicine Hat.
Pat was a lifelong member of the United Church and was very active in AA. She enjoyed travelling and summers at their RV spot at Sicamous. Photography was a hobby that resulted in many cards and bookmarks through the years. The Brier was always a must-watch and she always enjoyed bridge, cribbage and other card games. She enjoyed time with her grandchildren, especially when she was skiing, swimming, or playing cribbage with them. Pat also loved early morning walks and her notable pet dogs in her life.
Vern passed away in 2002 and Pat spent the remaining years at Chinook Village, then the Riverview Care Center in Medicine Hat. She was healthy throughout her life and passed away peacefully in her sleep.
Pat is survived by her children, Rod (Nadine), Ray (Mavis), Tom (Terry) and Verna, six grandchildren and eleven great grandchildren.
The family would like to thank all the wonderful staff and doctors at Riverview Care Centre, Chinook Village and her special care givers Anne Marie, Cindy and Bonnie.

  1. Alana Lanz says:

    My sincerest condolences. Your Mom was an exceptional lady. So dear and precious. She would always tell me to find my path and follow it. Be the best woman you know how to be. I met all of you when your father passed away, when I stopped by with a lasagna. I will never forget how proud she was of all you. The world truly lost an amazing woman. Lots of hugs.
