Pat Korble, a loving mother, grandmother, sister, and friend, passed away In Calgary, Alberta on August 20, 2023, at 78 years old.
Pat had a mischievous, strong-willed, and fun-loving spirit, paired with a wonderful sense of humour that brought laughter and happiness to those fortunate enough to know her. She held a special fondness for games and cards, with a particular passion for the game of bridge. Her ability to laugh at herself brought humour and laughter to family gatherings, creating joyful memories that will be cherished.
Born on June 16, 1945, in Luscar, Alberta, she spent her early life in Edmonton. In 1964, she married Ron, and during the 1970s, they made Calgary their home. It was there that she established and operated childcare centers, touching the lives of many children and families in the community. In 2002, she retired to the Crowsnest Pass with Ron, enjoying the mountains they both loved. In recent years, she returned to Calgary, where she reconnected with old friends and formed many new friendships. Her shared love for bridge created bonds that kept her socially engaged and brought her great joy.
Pat is survived by her children: Richard (Ilana) and Margaret (JP), and her grandchildren: Hunter, Sydney, Amelia, and Cameron. She is also remembered by her sister Donna Stenberg and her brother Terry Cairns. In 2018, she was preceded in passing by her husband Ron, with whom she shared a life of companionship and treasured memories.
Pat's memory will live on in our hearts as a reminder of her love, strength, and the connections she made.
A private family memorial will take place to honour Pat's memory. In lieu of flowers, the family kindly suggests considering donations to the United Way of Calgary.
