Draper, Patricia “Pat” Rose

September 18th, 2016

Passed away peacefully at home on Sunday, September 18th, 2016 in her 75th year. Beloved wife of Donald Draper. Cherished mother of Michael Draper (Barb), Scott Draper, Alice Draper (Dr. Charles Hall), Christopher Draper (Lesley) and James Draper. Caring sister of Eileen Johnson, Elizabeth Johnson, and David Johnson (Karen). Proud Grandma of Marley, Caylee, Jackson and Catton. Pat was born in Doncaster, Yorkshire, England on July 18th, 1942. She is predeceased by her parents Grace (Caviness) (2016) and James Johnson (1982) and by her sister Rosemary Johnson (2010). She will be dearly missed by many friends and her extended family. Pat was a well-loved elementary school teacher starting her career at Manor and Highland Park Public School in 1961 and retiring as kindergarten teacher at Mountsfield Public School in 2005. Pat had a lifelong love for her faith and served as a leader and teacher in many facets of the LDS church. With a great love for children, she was a surrogate mom and gramma to many. In retirement, Pat served as an exemplary tutor for the Scottish Rite Dyslexia program and as Director of the London Family History Center.

Richard and Paulette JenkinsonDonald and family, We are saddened at the passing of Pat, but happy that she is no longer suffering. Pat was and is a powerful influence in our lives and the lives of our family. She was always serving others and coming up with unconventional solutions to complex problems. Paulette enjoyed serving with Pat in various R.S. callings and was blessed to be her companion in Visiting Teaching and having Pat as a faithful Visiting Teacher. She owes her love of creating greeting cards to Pat. May our Heavenly Father bless and comfort each one of you as you adjust to not having Pat present in your everyday lives and as you look forward to a glorious reunion in the eternities. Hugs. Richard & Paulette Jenkinson
Elaine AxtI am so sorry for this loss to your family. No matter the circumstances you are never ready. No preparation, no expectation can prepare you for the hurt and profound feeling of loss. Although I didn't have the opportunity to meet Pat Draper, I was grateful to her. I a knew what a terrific person she must have been and is reflected in her daughter Alice.; who I consider a gift in my life. They say times heals, I don't think so, but it does help. There will be a time when memories will bring a smile and not a tear.
Linda RobbinsMy sincere condolences to you & your family Scott- may memories bring you comfort .

The Way FamilyOur deepest condolences to the Draper Family at such a sad time. We had the joy of having Mrs. Draper as our kindergarten teacher at Mountsfield for all three of our children for 6 consecutive years. I worked in her classroom as a volunteer during that time, and have never forgotten her love, patience, kindness, humour, and grace. Mrs. Draper taught me a lot about parenting, and supported me when I was caring for my elderly parents. My children still remember songs that they sang, activities they enjoyed, and the happiness they always felt in Pat's classroom. She was a truly wonderful soul, and will always be in your hearts, and many others, forever.
