Died peacefully of natural causes at the Peterborough Regional Health Centre on January 5, 2018, aged 89.
Predeceased by her husband of 40 years, Ray Melville Lathangue, son Timothy Neil Jones, and brother Alan Mundy.
Born on March 9, 1928, in Roe Green, Kingsbury, northwest London, England, to Albert James Mundy and Margaret Jean Mundy (née MacDonald).
Pat was a naturally bright, articulate, vivacious and talented child, winning a scholarship to Hendon Technical College (now Middlesex University).
But World War II interrupted, and she and her family survived the Battle of Britain with the help of bomb shelters. As a teenager, she could see the Bermondsey Docks burning from her home and observe the dogfights in the skies above.
Pat sailed to Quebec City in 1956, and from there by train to family in Bowmanville, Ontario, where she raised three sons: Christopher (Jack), Robin (Holly), and Neil (Nathalie).
Pat's first marriage, to Dennis Jones, ended in separation in 1970; divorce followed. She met the love of her life, Ray, in 1972, and together raised the boys in Peterborough, Ontario, where she worked at the Ministry of Correctional Services and he at Lakeland Ford-Mercury and Bill Storey Pontiac-Buick dealerships.
Around this time, Pat happily befriended step-son John Lathangue (Lynn), and their daughters, Becky and Mindy.
She leaves her sons, their spouses, and the grandchildren of whom she was so very proud: Sebastian, Olivia, Madeline, Dexter, Miles, and Matthew. Pat is also survived by her sister, Barbara Welsh, nephew Paul (Mary), nieces Trisha (Frank) and Melanie; great nieces Lisa and Erin (Christopher), sister-in-law Marg Mundy and nephews, Scott and Andrew (Julie).
The family wishes to thank the staff of St. Joseph's at Fleming and Peterborough Regional Health Centre, Ward B5, for their tender care of our mother in her last days.
She was a loyal friend, a proud Briton and a daughter of the Church of England. With a sometimes sharp tongue and a quick wit, she lived a long and mostly happy life. She loved and was loved in return. God bless you, Mum. Exitus-reditus.
Visitation, 12-1pm, Friday 12 January 2018, at St. John and St. Barnabas Anglican Church, Brock St., Peterborough, to be followed by funeral at 1pm.
