Born and raised in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Pat married David Chivers of nearby Newtownards and
while stationed with the Royal Air Force in Stafford, England had her first child. Pat worked in a clerical
role at Stormount in Belfast prior to emigrating to Toronto in 1967 where she was a proofreader at
Canada Law Book Co. The family later moved to North Bay where she served for many years in the
hospitality industry. Pat was a lifelong lover of literature and puzzles. She could often be found curled up
with a favourite book, crossword or sudoku.
The family deeply and sincerely thank the staff at St Joseph’s Lifecare Centre for their dedicated and
compassionate care in Pat’s final years.
