Patricia June Webber nee Burritt
Born March 25, 1945, died June 6, 2023 at Lady Minto Hospital, Salt Spring Island, after a lengthy journey with cancer and associated illness. Pat was born in Vancouver, BC and is survived by her husband, Joe, two sons, Timothy and Michael, daughters in-law Lori and Jennifer, two grandchildren Oscar and Ruby and three siblings Lee McAleese, Arlene Dashwood and Harvey Burritt. She was particularly excited about the developing interests of Oscar in psychology and Ruby in music. Pat studied ceramic arts while Joe attended graduate school at Oregon State University, and expanded her pottery skills as an artist and teacher when she moved to Victoria in 1973, and finally at their Stewart Road property in 1996. Pat was a lifelong member of the United Church, was involved as an elder, and helped guide the church with her many roles, as a board member, chair of the board and in the choir. Her compassion and generosity for all was punctuated with her never ending smile and robust laughter. She was deeply interested in natural systems and became an advocate for all plants and animals which was reflected in her animated pots featuring, among many, her soul creature, frogs. A celebration of Pat’s life is being planned for the last week in July.
