elevated GD0Yg Obituary

elevated GD0Yg It is with heavy hearts that her family announces the passing of Patricia Jennifer Samson (nee Pocock).  After a heroically fought battle with an incurable cancer, Patsy passed away peacefully on December 31, 2022, with her loving husband of 47 years, Gerry, by her side.

elevated GD0Yg Patsy loved cottaging. Every year, before moving from Toronto to Lake Simcoe in 2020, Patsy would spend hours researching and vetting the most beautiful spots in Ontario.   Once she found the perfect spot, she and Gerry would spend their summers sipping chardonnay (and Canadians) on the dock, watching their children, and later their grandchildren, swim, and enjoy sunsets together. 

elevated GD0Yg She loved a good game of euchre, yahtzee and cribbage, was an avid reader, hand crafted beautiful quilts, and made pies that pastry chefs would be proud of. She was also a lifelong fan of the Toronto Blue Jays.

elevated GD0Yg Patsy put family above all else and will be forever missed by her husband Gerry and her four children, Elizabeth (Chris Osti), Stephen (Liza), Michael (Kylie), and Timothy, and five grandchildren, Lily, Nicola, Ava, Elliott, and Matthew.

elevated GD0Yg We would like to extend our thanks to the staff of the Odette Cancer Centre at Sunnybrook Hospital and to the staff of Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital in Orillia, Ontario for the outstanding care they provided to Patsy.
