elevated dIL4m Patricia “Pat” McLaughlin passed from this life at dawn on Christmas morning suddenly, surrounded by her loving sisters Marie Stoneman (Dennis), Brenda Aquilina (Charles) and Caroline O’Connor (Patrick) and brother Jim McLaughlin (Heidi). She was a dedicated teacher who gave of herself over a career of more than 36 years with the Toronto Catholic District School Board from which she had retired in 2016.  Most of those years saw her teaching the youngsters of Blessed Sacrament School at Yonge Street and Bedford Park Avenue in Toronto at the Grade 1/2 level. She was a passionate and accomplished gardener. Pat is the cherished aunt of nieces and nephews whom she loved, mentored and cared for unstintingly: Laura and Sarah Aquilina, William and Christopher Stoneman, Amanda, Nicole and Daniel O’Connor and Emily, Paul and Eric McLaughlin. She has been the center of family life and the den mother to us all. Pat is survived by her Aunt Annie Hunter of Slievebawn, Ireland, by many cousins residing in Ireland, the UK and the USA and by her uncles Paddy McLaughlin of Malin Head, County Donegal, Ireland and Charlie McLaughlin of Milton, Massachusetts-their twinkling Irish eyes mimicking those of her adoring father Bill who predeceased her in 1985.  Her much loved mother Bridie McLaughlin (nee Houghton) predeceased her in 2015 after several years under Pat’s kindly care, having herself lavished so much care on Pat and her siblings in their early years. More recently Pat pampered and enjoyed the devotion of her (very fortunate) Malti-poo Gracie Lou.  Pat is greatly loved and she means even more to us than she knew.  Our hearts are broken to have lost this gentle soul. We commend her to the embrace of our Lord asking that she be granted His eternal life and that His perpetual light may shine upon her.
