In Loving Memory (1949-2023) ~
It is with great sorrow that the family announces the passing of Patricia Leschuk, she passed away on July 30th, 2023, after a courageous fight with Cancer.
Patricia was born in St Boniface Manitoba where she grew up and went to school to eventually become an X-ray technician. She ended up moving to British Columbia and settled down in the Clearwater area, where she met her life partner Bill Lorenzen. Patricia helped to raise Bill’s children in Avola, B.C., and worked at the Clearwater Hospital for over 25 years.
Patricia’s greatest passion was her garden which she spent many hours loving and taking care of it, she eventually moved to Clearwater and continued with her love of gardening there, she continued gardening for the rest of her life, she was also an artist and loved to paint, she was very talented at doing landscape paintings.
Patricia is predeceased by her mother and father Sophie and Daniel Leschuk, her brother Lloyd Leschuk, her spouse Bill Lorenzen and her Stepdaughter Beverly Lorenzen.
Patricia will be greatly missed by her friends and surviving family, Sister-in-law Lisa Leschuk and her daughter Wendy Phinney and her children, her cousin Donna (Dick) Wasser, her Stepson Darcy Lorenzen, and grandchildren Kristin and Ray Jones and Connor Lorenzen all of whom she loved very much.
The family would like to thank the staff at the Dr. Helmcken Memorial Hospital, and the caring staff at the Marjorie, Willoughby Snowden Memorial hospice in Kamloops BC, who took such good care of her in her final months of life, and a very special thank you to her good friends and colleagues Pearl and Bruce, Janice and Doug who were with her until the very end, we would also like to thank Dorothy and Roger, who helped Patricia around the house and brought her meals in her final few months at home. We cannot thank you all enough and are beyond grateful.
The Family will be planning a Celebration of Life for September next year in Clearwater, B.C., we want to give anyone who wants to attend time to plan their trip and will be posting the details on social media as they are arranged.
