It is with heavy hearts and gratitude for her life, the Grant family announces that Patricia ‘Pat’ Grant passed away peacefully surrounded by her children at the Meaford Hospital on Saturday, September 17, 2022, at the age of 85.
She was the much loved mother of Tim Grant of Meaford, Ellen Grant (Orran Krieger) of Boston, Cam Grant (Margie Regan) of Newmarket; and very special ‘Granny’ of John, Beth, Joel, Maya, Isaac and Kaela.
Pat is predeceased by her husband of 54 years, Charles ‘Chuck/Charlie’ Grant and her brothers Robert ‘Bob’ and James ‘Jim’ Alexander.
Pat was a longtime resident of the Meaford, Thornbury and Collingwood area.
She enjoyed a long career first as an English teacher and then as a guidance counsellor/guidance department head at Collingwood High School. She cared deeply about the teenagers she counselled and kept in touch with many. She was passionate about the rights of the under-represented and promoting peace. She loved the outdoors and hiked the entire Bruce Trail. Most of all, she treasured time with family and making tarts at Christmas.
A celebration of Pat’s life will be conducted at Grace United Church in Thornbury on Saturday, October 1, 2022 at 11 o’clock.
