Their children, Haven, Penny, Scott and Leslie were born in Dryden and in 1955, they moved to Brandon where Brian was born. Gord passed away in 1959 after succumbing to his battle with cancer. Pat was studying the Bible with Jehovah’s Witnesses throughout this time and Gord encouraged her to continue with her studies as he knew she derived much strength, courage and faith, to help her. She was baptized as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses in the early 1960’s and spent her life devoted to her faith and her family. Pat enjoyed shopping (a good bargain), gardening, crossword puzzles, knitting and crocheting.
