Obituary

It is with great sadness that the family of Reverend Patricia Hill announces her passing on September 3, 2018 at the age of 85 years. She will be lovingly remembered by her sister, June Patton; sister-in-law, Fran (Fennig), as well as numerous nieces & nephews and very good friends, Esther & Hamish Rankin.

Pat was born in Kingston, Ontario, the 5th of 6 children. They were all raised to love God, and this sustained her throughout her life. She completed her education to grade 10. Pat began her ministry at St. Georgeís Anglican Cathedral in Kingston, where she worked with children for many years.

At 19 years old, she started working at Bell Canada; she stayed for 23 years. During this time, she was a St. Johnís Ambulance instructor for 18 years. Pat left Bell and went to work for the Kingston Federal Prison for Women. For 15 years she learned many new skills, such as supervising inmates.

In the 80ís, she moved to Edmonton, then to St. Albert, to be close to family. She worked for the Edmonton Institute for Women. After retirement, she completed her GED, then took university courses to become an Anglican Deacon. Here she ministered to the ill, dying, and poor.

Pat loved her family, especially her nieces and nephews. She loved sewing, knitting, jigsaw puzzles, birds, and flowers. She especially loved dogs. Sadie and Luke were her faithful companions for many years. She was fortunate to have travelled to many countries, as well as seeing much of Canada.

Pat was predeceased by her mother, Emily; father, Edward; and brothers, Ron, Ken, Gordon, and Peter.

A Memorial Service for Reverend Patricia Hill will be held at 1:00 p.m., on Friday, September 7, 2018, at Christ Church, 12116-102 Avenue, Edmonton.

The family would like to send a special thank you to Dr. Krista Bennett and all of the caring staff at the Citadel Care Centre for taking such good care of Aunt Pat for the last 7 years. They would also like to thank Reverend Susan Oliver, Christ Church Ė Edmonton, and the staff at St. Albert Funeral Home.

In Loving Memory of
Reverend Patricia Hill
