TILBROOK PATRICIA JOAN
It is with broken hearts that we announce the passing of Patricia Joan Tilbrook (Nee Smith). Pat passed away peacefully on the morning of Monday, July 5, 2021.
A dedicated nurse for 40 years, Pat’s nursing career showed in her compassion and care for others. She always took care of people, unselfishly reaching out and helping others, always putting others before herself right up to the end of her life. A lover of dialogue and advice, Pat was a “talker” and loved to engage in good conversation with people. She had a smile that could be seen for miles and a laugh that could fill a room. Pat was an enormously proud wife, mother and grandmother, who cherished her two grandchildren dearly. She spent many years with Bruce camping and exploring Canada in their trailer, going for drives to see new scenery, and walking. Pat was a true Smith, as she so enjoyed playing cards and games with her family. One of her favorite things was teaching her grandchildren new card games and watching them beat her ! Pat was born February 21, 1950. She is lovingly remembered by her husband, Bruce of 49 years, two daughters, Shauna (Dean) and Heather (Gord); two grandchildren, Noah and Makynna; her brother, Doug (Karen); her sister, Barb (Brian); and five nieces and nephews. Pat was deeply loved and will be dearly missed by her family and many friends. A Celebration of Life will be held on Sunday, July 25, 2021 at 2:00 p.m. at By-The-Lake Park Hall in Wetaskiwin.
