MaryAnne and Joe Gallant - January 14, 2023

Tom MacInnes - January 14, 2023

I first met Pat while taking a Visual Arts teacher training course in Cobourg during the summer. I was new to Cobourg. Pat was not new to Cobourg. Between Pat and everyone else in the course who was from Cobourg, I learned just as much (if not more) about Cobourg’s “real” history than I ever did about Art. Pat must have liked me because she kept up a friendship with me long after the courses ended. Most memorably, it was Pat who was with me on the first day of my retirement from teaching to help me ring that silver bell and announce that I was now a free person. Every time I look at my bell, I think of Pat and her kindness and friendship. She touched many lives and left our world better for having been here. God Bless all members of her family. Best of luck in the days and weeks to come.

I grew up right around the corner from the Perkin family. My sister and I regularly babysat the kids and our mother, Jan Oliver, took care of David in our home.

I miss her already and want to send my condolences to the Perkin and Cortesis families. Sincerely, Cara Jack

Annie, Elizabeth, Estelle, Steven and beautiful Pat's Perkin family. Our family was so saddened with the passing of a much loved former neighbour of my niece Martha and her family. [She and Craig are vacationing in Costa Rica right now.] Martha and her siblings have many fun memories, much too long to write down but they have them in their hearts. Pat was affectionately called Cheech. They all went to the Thomas Gilbard Public School and CDCI West. [Hi School] Pat's mom Annie, best baker of Baklava, always welcomed the neighbours to drop in at any time. Pat is up "there" reminiscing with her dad George and Grandma YiaYia. God Bless!!!

My sincere condolences Mark, Anne, and family. I first met Patria (or Mama Patricia as we called her because she tried to mother everyone) in September 1973. We became friends quickly. In first year I would drive her to Cobourg on the weekend and we would giggle all of the way to her home. Patricia was always a warm and caring person. She had a great sense of humour. Our paths would cross every now and then over the years. Our friendship was the type that allowed us pick up where we left off even if several years had passed. The last 10 years we had more regular contact because I started working with the school board. I feel privileged to have called her my friend. Rest in peace my friend. Until I see you again.
