PATRICIA KNOWLAND Jan 15, 1922 - Sept. 20, 2013 With great sadness, we announce the peaceful passing of Patricia Knowland. She was the dear sister of Barbara Viner and John Elliot Square, who both predeceased her. She is mourned by her son, Paul (Debbie), daughter Jill (Al) Dickson, and granddaughter, Jessica Knowland. She is also remembered very fondly by her niece and many nephews in England. Pat was born on January 15, 1922 to Edward and Dorothy Elliot Square in Plymouth, England. During World War II, she was in the Women's Royal Naval Service. While in the WRENS, she met her husband David. After the war, they immigrated to Canada with their son, Paul, and settled in Oakville. The later arrival of their daughter, Jill, was a great joy. Pat lived in Oakville for most of her remaining life. She was a long time member of the Oakville Club, where she took part in bridge, sailing and tennis. In fact she continued to play tennis well into her eighties. From the late 1960's to 1987, she worked as a medical secretary. She loved working with both staff and patients, as well as doing charitable work for the IODE. After her retirement, she studied English literature at McMaster University and graduated with honours in 1992. She also had a strong interest in drama and loved the theatre. Due to advancing Alzheimer's disease, she moved into Churchill Place and later the Gibson Long Term Care Centre. She received wonderful treatment at both facilities. The family would especially like to thank the staff at Gibson for their care and devotion to her during those last few years. Her service is to be held at St Jude's Anglican Church, 160 William Street, Oakville at 2:00 P.M. on Saturday, September 28th, with a reception to follow at the Oakville Club. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the Christian Children's Fund of Canada or a charity of your choice. Please visit the Book of Memories at www.wardfuneralhome.com.
