She passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving family on Friday, November 2, 2018, in the Inverness Consolidated Memorial Hospital, Inverness, Nova Scotia.  Born in Truro, on June 26, 1950, she was the second oldest daughter of the late Margaret "Peggy" (Nock) and Samuel Pearo.

She is survived by and will be sadly missed by her loving husband of 49 years, Donald; her loving daughters, Wanda (Wayne) Chandler and Melanie (Warren) Hart; her five beautiful grandchildren, Ethan and Evan Chandler; Taylor (Anne), Rhylee and Charlize Hart; siblings, Shirley (Frankie) Chandler, Diane Rouse, Wilma (Ross) Matheson, Margie Ellis, John Robert (Sylvia) Pearo, Sheldon Pearo, Melly (Kennie) Ferguson; In-laws, Linda Pearo, Barry Campbell, Sadie (Johnny) Matthews, Jean (Winston) Nock, Kennie (Christel) Mac Donald.

Patsy was a faithful and involved member of the Stewart United Church. She was a lifetime member of the MacLean UCW and a dedicated community volunteer.

Over the years, she worked at Dino’s, Texaco, Trailsmen and done housecleaning with her baby sister. She also looked after her special aunt and uncle, Peter and Florrie Ferguson; secretary and business partner of TEREC Ltd., but her most rewarding job in life was looking after her family.

She enjoyed family gatherings and her King Cole tea. People will always remember her beautiful smile and what an impact she made on people she met. She will mostly be remembered as being a very kind and loving person who was always thinking of others.
