    It was an honour to know you, you were always so beautifully dressed with lippy on and a fabulous smile.
    I will always remember special times listening to “your Steven” play, we enjoyed that so much.
    Then never to be forgotten our last excursion to the airport, you were treated like royalty, as you so deserved.
    Now your final trip to your beloved Giovanni.
    Rest In Peace sweet Patricia.
    You will be missed.
    Kisses … Ida

    I have many fond memories of my Aunt Pat from when I was a child and when I visited with her in Australia. She was always full of life and fun!
    I am so glad I had the opportunity to video chat with her.
    She was loved by so many, even though we are all thousands of miles apart.
    She will be missed and will remain in our hearts.❤️

    Pat was married to Giovanni (my dad) for 10 years and in all that time she cared and loved him and all of our family so much.
    Dad was very proud when he took her back to his home town in Italy and then Pat did the same and took dad to England to meet family members on both sides.
    Pat certainly was a lady full of life and character.

    Dear Aunty Pat,
    you were the only grandmother we had as kids and you were always so loving and caring towards both Gianpaolo and myself Jess.
    We have so many fond memories of you, from sleep overs to taking us for day trips around Fremantle and Perth.
    I remember your hugs the most.
    You were always giving us the biggest and warmest of hugs.
    I loved spending time with you and thank you for making our childhood so memorable.
    Rest in peace now and give my Nonno a big massive hug and kiss from us.
    Love Gianpaolo and Jessica.

    Dear Pat, I am so happy that I came to see you nearly 3 1/2 years ago, where my children gave me that for my birthday. ♥️you’re definitely going to be missed by a lot of people, you definitely made a big difference to the world and you should be so proud of yourself. You’ve left a piece of you wherever you have been, I just want to say the first time we met you was at the airport when you arrived there. We looked at you and I never forget you have bright red hair and my dad said that you were his red hair lady.
    I could go on and on and on, there is not to say in the 10 years that we had known you but just a short short one, especially Sundays where we had soccer, you were there all the time especially when you worked in the canteen as well. You took on dad and you took on his two children, I know that stage there were five grandkids. There is so much I can say but I can definitely say this one – you have definitely left your mark here on earth, now go in peace and join all your love ones, rest in peace Pat until we meet again.

    Pat from the moment you came into our lives, you brought with you smiles and happiness.
    You were the only Mother In Law I knew and you openly and wholeheartedly care for us all especially my children Cesare, Lisa and Giovanni.
    The care you showed your husband Pop was second to none.
    The world will miss your laughter.
    You are finally reunited with your beloved Giovanni.
    My heartfelt Sympathy to your only son Steven, the joy of your life, and all his Family at this sad time. Pat will never be forgotten.
    – Damiano and Family

    Dear Nanny Pat,
    I hope U know just how much myself & the boys loved you.
    Once I started writing I realised there was so much U had done for me over the years & you were always there for me and my boys.
    Although U never got to write your life story, I enjoyed hearing you tell them to me as I got older I appreciated the life you had even more.
    I hope U are at peace in knowing you were a lovely person and you certainly made yourself known wherever U went. And I have lots of memories I will keep with me forever.
    Even though little Jakeb was your only great-grandson U never got to meet, I know you will be looking after him now & giving him your big cuddles.
    Love you always
    Sarah-Kate and the boys,
    Kody, Bailey, Harly and Caleb xoxoxo 💜

    Dearest friend Pat,
    I will always treasure our friendship.
    From the time I met you in your apartment in Perth, after my daughter said she’d met you with Steven and I’d like you and we must get together. You were working in the Sheraton Hotel and were greatly respected.
    There followed lovely catch ups.
    You were kind, lively, funny and certainly know how to laugh at the world.
    My last meeting with you was at Sydney CDB station, you were dressed so elegantly as ever and that beaming smile.’ Come on ‘ you said we’ll go on the ferry to where Steve is singing. You were the epitome of the perfect friend. Then thankfully I got to speak online in Maldon about 3 weeks ago.
    Oh! Pat I will miss your humour and will take it with me all my days.
    R.I.P. my darling Pat see you on the other side one day I hope
    Love Janet ❤️❤️🌹

    I shall think of you dancing with Nan, Grandad and Uncle Ted too
    Your laughter so infectious
    Your smile so bright
    Now that your gone, the world will seem different, but be assured Aunt Pat we’ll be together again soon
    For now rest peacefully, don’t cause to much strife
    Love you forever
    My beautiful Auntie Pat

    Love to you Steven and Fizz for the wonderful service you done for my sister, your mother Pat. I have lovely memories going back over 70 years, she wasn’t afraid to give me a clip round the ear if I misbehaved and I was 40 years old then, but loved her to death.
    Love and best wishes uncle Mike xxxxxxx
