Patricia Nora Nadeau

July 12, 1943, Montreal, Quebec – September 16, 2020, Fannystelle, Manitoba.

Patricia Nora Nadeau died peacefully at home on September 16, 2020. Pat leaves behind her husband Rene, daughter Lisa (Bing), and granddaughters Caitlin (Fred) and Jane (Jair).

Pat was raised in Toronto and moved to Winnipeg as a teenager. Working at Eatons as typist in 1960, she met Doreen, Vivian, and Tania, who would become lifelong friends. Little did she know this job is how she would end up in Fannystelle after meeting Vivian’s brother Rene.  They married in 1963 and had their daughter Lisa a few years later.

Fannystelle is where Pat’s love of curling was realized, but what she really enjoyed were the shenanigans of bonspieling with the Fannystelle ladies. She loved to reminisce about her travels with friends to see the Silver Broom curling in several countries.

Pat was a school trustee for the White Horse Plains School Division, serving on the Manitoba Association of School Trustees executive. She worked for many years as an Educational Assistant at a number of Hutterian schools and especially cherished her time with her kindergarten children. She was honoured with the Queen’s Golden Jubilee Medal in 2002.

Pat was a fiery redhead well known for her fashion sense (bling and turquoise were her signature pieces), her ability to make friends anywhere, and her love for a good game of cards.  Pat was always humming or singing or whistling a tune, and she knew all the oldies. She was one of Elvis’ biggest fans, loved music, movies and books, and was always up to date with the latest celebrity gossip and pop culture. She always had great luck in all things bingo, cards or trivia. She could strike up a conversation with anyone and treated everyone like family.

She was known lovingly as “Memere” to her granddaughters (and her grandsons-in-law, and her great-grandcats “Cuddly-Wuddleys” and “Lulululululu”).  Her poached eggs, egg salad, and fried eggs will be passed down for generations to come. She also taught her girls the value of a good daily facial regime and we all aspire to be as wrinkle free as she was.

We are grateful for all the love and support from family and friends throughout mom’s illness, whether running errands, bringing food and treats, or checking in and visiting. Many thanks to mom’s care team: Dr. Braun, Dr. Homik, Dr. Woelk, the home care and palliative nurses and our special palliative care volunteer Anne Marie. Our deepest gratitude and love to Marnie Fry and her team at In Good Hands who provided the best care imaginable and made it possible for mom to be at home until the end.

Private family gathering will be held.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Canada Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation in Pat’s memory.

As Memere would say “Love you, love you, love you! Toodley-doo!”
