The passing of Dorothy Patricia “Pat” Prime of Keswick Ridge, NB, wife of the late Frank Prime, occurred on Saturday, July 23, 2022 at Frederick Hall - Shannex. Born on August 3, 1933 in Regina, SK, she was a daughter of the late Thomas and Dorothy (Howard) Nelson.
Pat grew up in Saskatchewan and especially enjoyed her summers at Regina Beach. She left home to work in Toronto, where she met her husband to be, Frank, who brought her to NB where they eventually settled on Keswick Ridge. Pat loved the outdoors, working with her hands alongside husband Frank, of 57 yrs. She loved all her fur babies and rescued many strays over the years. When she wasn’t away at horse shows or dog shows she was happily at home in her garden or wandering about the farm with her family members and dogs. She had a love for music and a talent for painting. She was a Life time member of the Canadian Morgan Horse Association. Pat was a dedicated supporter of the World Wildlife Federation and Operation Smile for many years. She will be greatly missed.
