She will be dearly missed by her cat Ginger, as well as many nieces, nephews and friends. Pat was born in Duncan B.C. and moved to Manitoulin as a young child. She loved the natural beauty of the Island and would always take the time to look and listen to everything around her. She was a kind and giving soul with a smile and a kind word for everyone she met. She was a strong voice and volunteer for her beloved community of Tehkummah. She wrote the Tehkummah Talk and Times in the Manitoulin Expositor for over 30 years and was a published poet. She owned and operated a restaurant where she was known to make the best burgers around. She drove a mail route where she acknowledged birthdays with a muffin, a note for someone ill, giving cookies to the dogs, while spreading flower seeds along the road. She had unwavering faith in her Lord, but her greatest love and joy was her family and her gift of music. Due to COVID restrictions services will be by invitation only.

MY PRAYER

Dear God, Grant me the power that I In my humble worth,

Do only good for others As I spend time on this earth.

Make me see the good in all So that my heart is pure,

As I walk along this path with you

My footsteps most secure.

Let me enjoy the beauty here

In this great land of ours,

And wonder at your wisdom,

As you balance life and powers.

And when it comes my time to leave

And find that other shore,

May only kind words echo back

As I walk through that door.

-Pat Hall
