Patricia was born in Krokees, Greece and emigrated to the United States in her twenties. Her marriage to George brought her to Ottawa where she enjoyed many years of involvement with the Greek community. During all these years, Patricia kept close ties with her family in Chicago, Illinois.
Throughout her life, Patricia had a natural ability to work with her hands, and those golden hands were never idle. Patricia had a successful career in the garment industry, and she took great pride in keeping a wonderful home. She is deeply missed by those who knew her and loved her.
