PATRICIA JESSIE LILLIAN ARDUINI

Born In: Esquimalt, British Columbia, Canada
Born: December 8th, 1918

Passed in: Kamloops, British Columbia, Canada
Passed on: November 12th, 2013

Just shy of her 95th birthday, Mom left us peacefully to be with her loving husband Victor and many other angels, in the kingdom of God.

She is predeceased by her husband Victor Arduini, siblings Arthur, Bill, Evelyn and Cyril, and in-laws Joe, Mary and Nellie and grandson Daniel.

Pat was the youngest of five children born to Eveyln and Charles Robinson on December 8, 1918 in William Head (Esquimalt), B.C. At the age of two the family moved to Vancouver and a few years later they settled in Kamloops. Pat graduated from Kamloops High School and started work as a lawyerís receptionist. One day needing to get home, she and her friend accepted a ride from a young gentleman, named Victor. Six months later they were married and spent 59 wonderful years together before his passing.

Mom was devoted to the Catholic Church. She was a member of both the Little Flower Society, and the Catholic Womenís League. With fourteen children, there was little time for hobbies, other than laundry and cooking. Mom loved to cook and it was always enjoyed by many people. As her children left home she found time for gardening, her yard filled with many flowers. She and Dad loved to go for drives in the countryside; they travelled to Italy, Hawaii and Reno several times, with her last big trip to Vegas at 91 years old. As well, Mom enjoyed camping with her grown family, continuing until she was 92. Mom never backed down from a challenge, including her courageous fight with Alzheimerís disease.

Mom will forever be in the hearts of her fourteen children, Gregory (Leslie), Vicki (Jack), Timothy (Marti), Peter (Dee), Paul (Sylvia), James (Emma), Thomas (Janet), Mary (Bob), David (Marianne), Christopher (Mo), Teresa (Sam), Vincent (Stephanie), Catherine (Jennifer), Monica (Chuck), former son-in-law Victor, her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, as well as many nieces and nephews.

We would like to thank our sister Teresa for her love, devotion and continual care of Mom, as well as the staff of Ridgeview Lodge, Ponderosa Lodge, High Country Home Care and Drs. Winn and Anders.

Prayers will be recited at Sacred Heart Cathedral on Thursday, November 21, 2013 at 7:00 p.m. Monsignor Gerry Desmond will celebrate the mass of Christian Burial on Friday, November 22, 2013 at 11:00 a.m, at the Cathedral.
