Mom was so blessed to have wonderful people in her life to share so many wonderful moments with. She also loved her extended Roque family and friends in Killarney, Ontario.

We can’t thank you all enough for the support.

Hi Scott, (family and friends).
After reading through you Mom’s Obituary, I can only imagine the void that will be absent in your day to day living without her physical being. But God Bless her for leaving you guys with such great eternal memories.
Hats off to Father Paul Cusack for holding up the train to accompany her to those pearly gates.
God Bless you all.
Pauline and Gary
I was so sorry to hear about your mom’s passing and wanted to offer my condolences. I always really liked your mom. Her obituary is beautifully written a real testament to how much she was loved and enjoyed her life. I’m so glad you have lots of wonderful memories.
Sending your family my deepest condolences. Your mother was surrounded by your love to take with her for eternity. May she Rest In Peace 💗
To Scott and the Keyzers family, my condolences on the passing of your wonderful Mother, may you always remember her fondly, as she watches over you all from above.
As a friend of Bill and Suzanne Luciano I have learned of the devotion Pat’s children had for their mother, and it’s a loving tribute to her. May she rest in the peaceful embrace of her lord, and may her family find joy in memories of times shared with her.
As I write this note of condolence I hear your Mom’s infectious laugh and see the biggest smile on her face which never disappeared. Life allowed me to be a friend to Pat, a gift I will always cherish…We helped each other do extraordinary things with school children at St Rene, enriching their learning. Being Stuart and Robert’s teacher was a way of seeing first hand the amazing Mom Pat was. Watching Pat share her many talents unselfishly with other Moms and teachers in the school community was wonderful.
Pat encouraged Scott Kerry Stuart and Robert to be the best persons each could be. Her spirit is her gift to each of you.
I am so honored to be on her list of friends.
I will never forget you Pat….have fun at Thanksgiving lunch, cooking turkeys for everyone in heaven with Carolyn..you are a very special angel.
Dear Scott and Keyzers Family, our deepest condolences on the passing of your Mother. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all during this difficult time. RIP Mrs. Keyzers

Kerry, Scott, Stuart and Robert – The picture you chose is exactly how I remembered her – with that cheerful smile. She was always smiling, full of life and fun. She took such pride in each of you as you navigated the grades at school, always willing to help and see the humour in any situation. Parent interviews were a pleasure because she was so positive and enjoyed a good laugh. I am so sorry for your loss but I just know that you have such wonderful memories to help ease the pain.
My best to all of you.
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time
The British cousins are thinking of you all and will be at tomorrow’s service in spirit. Many happy visits to Toronto have been recalled and shared in recent days – Patti was usually at the centre of them. Thank you Patti.
Kerry, Scott, Stuart and Robert
We were so sad to hear of the passing of your mom, a wonderful mother, Granna and friend. Her passing will leave a void in so many lives. She was fun to be with, kind and generous and we want you to know how much we will miss her at family events. Our heart aches for Andrew, Brayden and Julia who loved their Granna so much and she loved them so much in return.
Rest In Peace Pat
To meet Pat, even in passing, was to be touched by her forever. A very special lady with a special gift, and never forgotten. Kerry, Scott, Stuart and Robert, our hearts go out to you during this time. You are her legacy and her love.
Love Jim and Betty
Rest In Peace Pat.
When I think of my memories of Miss Beauty AKA Patti I can recall the smile and warm laugh. She was always quick to joke and so caring. I remember how when I’d arrive at Christmas Eve she’d always warm food or introduce me to the party goers. She was a treasure and I feel blessed to have known her. Condolences to all of you! Her spirit lives on!
Scott & Keyzers Family,
My thoughts and prayers are with all of you during this difficult time. Remember all the good and fun stories and cherish them forever as she will never be forgotten.
Dear Scott and all of Mrs. Keyzers family, friends and loved ones,
My deepest condolences are you shared with you today during this difficult time.
Scott, Kerry, Stuart and Robert
