We are deeply saddened by the sudden passing of Patricia (Patti) Belbin, of Kamloops, on March 22nd, 2015 at 66 years old; loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend. She is survived by her loving husband, Bob Belbin, her children Peter (Nellie) Belbin, of Kamloops, Patrick (Suki) Belbin, of Penticton, and Chad (Julie) Belbin, of Kamloops. Also left to cherish her memory are Patti’s grandchildren: Santana Belbin, Nolan Belbin, and Finley Belbin; her brother Bill (Anne) French, and her mother-in-law, Mary Belbin. Patti is predeceased by her parents, Bob and Irene French, and her sister, Daphne Melien.
Patti was born August 10th, 1948, in Princeton, BC. She grew up in Penticton where she met and married her lifelong love, Bob, in 1966. Their three boys were born in Penticton, raised in Williams Lake, and spent a short time in Houston, BC, before finally settling in Kamloops.
Patti was employed with Cooper’s Foods from 1990 until the present, and they were an extended family she so warmly embraced. Patti also enjoyed her days on the River in Brock, surrounded by her family and friends who loved her dearly, and will miss her always.
A Celebration of Patti’s Life will take place between 2:00 and 4:00pm on Saturday, April 11th, 2015, at the Kamloops Golf & Country Club.
The family wishes to extend a special thank-you to the staff at the Royal Inland Hospital, and ask that donations in Patti’s memory be made to the Royal Inland Hospital Foundation, 311 Columbia St., Kamloops, BC, V2C 2T1.
