Pat’s family was very important to her and she leaves behind many nieces and nephews who will always remember “Aunty Pat” and what a wonderful person she truly was.
She always cared deeply for all her nieces and nephews. None more than her loving and caring niece, Patricia Desgrosseilliers. Pat said many times that Patti was her “Angel on Earth”.
There was so much more to Aunty Pat’s life then these few words could begin to express. Priscilla Ann Ness lived a full and productive life and leaves memories that will not soon be forgotten by her family and friends and her legacy will live on.
