Avery, Patricia Anne (née Tooley)

July 13th, 2020

Elegance. Spirit. Pure Love. That was Patricia Anne Avery (née Tooley) from the moment she entered this world on March 17, 1945, until the day she left, on Monday, July 13, 2020. She was a stunning, fierce, fire cracker of a lady with a big heart, who adored her family and close friends and was the first to respond when someone was in need. Patricia was always independent and because of her inherited strong family work ethics, she enjoyed over 40 years as a well-respected business woman. Pat was an amazing mother to Kristel and Kristina, a proud Nana to Jenna and Julia and a beloved wife to the late Ken Avery. Predeceased by her parents, Edward and Lillian Tooley. She was a treasured little sister to Beverley Clarkson; sister-in-law to Barbara Hanes and late Robert Clarkson; and aunt to Jane, late Paul, Robert, Scott, Jeff, and Steph. A memorial service will be conducted at WESTVIEW FUNERAL CHAPEL, 709 Wonderland Road North, London on Wednesday, July 29, 2020 at 2:00 p.m., with visitation one hour prior. Private interment at Woodland Cemetery. Registration is required to attend the visitation and/or service.  To register, please visit Westview Funeral Chapel's registration page

Patricia loved all animals, especially her fur-grandbabies and as such, would welcome any of those wishing to commemorate her passing by donating to the Oakville & Milton Humane Society. An alternate option for a donation in memory of Patricia could be made to the Canadian Cancer Society. Her family legacy will live on through the values she exemplified, the generosity and compassion she showed and the love she shared.

Kathleen PorchI moved to Bronte Harbour Club late in life, met a nice group of people and was very content with my move, spent many happy hours at social events. As with life there are always some people you 'click' with and I was fortunate to meet those people ...Pat was one of those .. we considered ourselves the fearless foursome!
