AINSLEY, Patricia Marie - Suddenly, at home in Oakville, on Wednesday, November 30, 2022, Patricia Marie Ainsley (nee Bogue), in her 84th year, beloved wife of the late Bertram Ainsley.
Cherished mother of Lee-Ann O'Leary (late Nick Kotsos), Theresa Ainsley (Bill Kersey), Diane Edgar (Bill Badalato), late Bertram Ainsley, and late Robert Ainsley (Dianne).
Treasured grandmother of Meagan, Erin, Wade, Katie, Kelli, Cooper, Rachel, Kyle, Colin, and Ryan.
Loved great-grandmother of James, Dawson, Jack, Regan, and Kellen.
At 17 years old, Patricia met a young soldier returning from Korea. Bertram and Patricia were married and soon had five young children.
Growing up in Toronto, Patricia was a city girl at heart, but she came to embrace country living. She created a home that was welcoming to all and a hub for family and friends.
She had a long career, working well into her 70s, that included early work in offices and sales, and later in addictions services, where she was able to help so many people.
Patricia was an aunt to many nieces and nephews and loved sharing family stories with them.
Patricia was also a beloved and supportive Nana, who had a twinkle in her eyes in the presence of her grandchildren or great-grandchildren, as they brought her such joy.
She will be dearly missed by all who loved her.
Private Family Service will be held at the Egan Funeral Home, 203 Queen St. S. (Hwy. 50), Bolton.
