Born to the late Patricia O’Dea Anderson and Huck Anderson in Toronto, she was the third oldest of seven children.
Her elementary education was at St. Mary of the Angels in Rosebank, ON and her First Communion at Our Lady of Guadalupe, Windsor, ON. Patricia graduated from Danforth Collegiate and Technical Institute, formerly Danforth Technical School in 1969, and continued her education at Ontario College of Art and Design University receiving a Diploma (4 years) in Communication and Design, in 1972.
Patricia was very passionate about her vocation to motherhood and devotion to the Pro-Life movement. Her talent as an artist led her to many midnight artistic endeavors producing portraits, Lives of the Saints paper-dolls, still-life, landscapes and religious paintings. Patricia was also an Instructor at Our Lady Seat of Wisdom College in Barry’s Bay where she taught Fine Arts (2004-2012) and Intro to Studio: Design (2009-2010).
Patricia loved her family, instilling in them gratitude for the gift of life. Close to her heart were her siblings, nieces, nephews and Godchildren. Her wonderful sense of humor, vivacious joy and calming wisdom made all those who encountered her feel loved.
We know she is with our Lord in Heaven or as she would call it her 'spiritual Brigadoon'.
