Obituary of Patricia Lynn Bagshaw
It is with great sadness we acknowledge the passing of Patricia Bagshaw.
She will be deeply missed by her husband Paul, daughters Alicia and Shelby (Deven) and grandchildren Aurora and Finley. Daughter of the late Reginald and Marie Shearer. Dear daughter-in-law of Brian and Marion Bagshaw of Udora, and sister-in-law of Janet Bagshaw of Quebec, and Susan Brigley and Francis Bryant of Udora. Aunt of Jacob and Maggie Brigley.
Patti was an avid member of her community volunteering for many years with the Food Bank and Sunderland Cemetery Board.
In her free time Patti loved to create crafts, hang out by the pool, spend time with family and friends and travel with her travel buddy Paul. They loved going to new places and returning to old favourites, the beach was one of Patti’s happy places.
Patti had a deep love for Christmas putting her passion into a Christmas light display for her neighbours and community every year. Even when the light display wasn’t running it was still being thought about, planned and tweaked all year round.
But most of all she loved spending time with her family, married to Paul Bagshaw for many years they built a life together filled with love and joy. There was nothing that made her more proud then seeing the strong, independent young women her daughters became. And nothing that melted her heart more then when she went from being Mom to also being “Mimi”. Her grandchildren were truly one of her biggest sources of pride and joy in this life.
The loss of Patti will be felt by all of those who were lucky enough to know her in this lifetime.

You got one of the good ones, one of the best, one we aren’t too sure how we will go on without.
If she gets bored up there be sure to keep her crafting supplies stocked up, she loves being creative and sharing her talents.
When Christmas rolls around give her the best seat in the house for Baggie’s Blinking Bulbs, it’s kind of a big deal, even Santa shows up for the show.
Make sure Mimi can see her grandchildren grow and see who they become. They love her so much.
Keep her close to her daughters, she’s so proud of them and the caring, strong, independent women they have become.
Take her to all the places she’s been to and more, she loved to travel. Promise to keep her by her travel buddy’s side wherever he goes, he’s going to need her there.
Please send her back to us when we need her most; help us feel her a warm embrace, help us hear the sound of her laugh, help us sense her listening ear.
Until we meet again, take good care of her.
