Tributes
  1. Pat I am so lost right now there are no words that can express how I am feeling. I will never be able to repay the friendship, knowledge, and guidance that you have provided me over the years.

    I could not ever have imagined the last time we spoke was the final time. How you helped me can never be measured, I will forever miss you, I am who I am, due to your persistence, determination, guidance and friendship. You touched mine and many lives in so many different ways. I am privileged to have called you my friend, the imprint you have left will always be with me.

    Pat there are no goodbyes for us, save me a seat in the waiting room.

    Sleep well my friend until we meet again.

  3. Pat whilst it has been along time since we were in contact, your involvement and commitment to women’s health, well-being and rights were outstanding. Take solace in the fact that you were a guiding light for many with whom you worked and that you were highly respected by friends and colleagues alike. Farewell my friend. Love to your family at this time.

  5. My Dearest Pat,
    To lose you in a time such as this is heart-breaking.
    You have been part of my life for 53 years. I will never forget our amazing trip to England by ship, then travelling around Europe together – 4 of us in a camper van bought outside Australia House in London. Not quite Hippies back then in the 1970’s. We had so many wonderful adventures on that trip, I cherish the memories.
    In your career you made an incredible difference to the lives of so many young people, bringing hope, acceptance, and positive regard.
    Your enthusiasm for other people and their aspirations was like sunshine.
    You made the best of life despite personal difficulties. I often felt inspired by your buoyancy and positive outlook.
    I am so thankful that we had a chance to have catch up when you went to hospital, you were so brave. That will always stay with me.
    So, now I must say good-bye, but you will stay in my heart always.
    Rest in peace my dear sister-in-law.

  6. To our dearest sister Pat

    Our lives will never be the same with you leaving us and this will leave a big hole in our hearts and lives.

    You taught us to face challenges head on & not to be scared to fail. If you did then it was another challenge to succeed at.

    We believe you succeeded and enjoyed your careers as a nurse then moving to Tasmania with Barry on the dairy farm and then returning to Victoria. Then you completed a university course to become a counsellor.

    We will miss your bubbly personality, your love & support.

    Rest in peace and we will miss you always.

    From your loving & incredibly sad sisters.

    Lesley and Sue
