September 18, 1950 – February 23, 2022
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Patricia Koleff (nee Kay) at the age of 72 at Columbia Forest Long Term Care, Waterloo after a long struggle with Alzheimer’s. Pat was the beloved wife of Peter who predeceased her in 2020.
Cherished sister of Beverley Richards (Ted) and Richard Kay (Shirley), lovingly remembered by her nieces Jennifer, Lynn, Lisa, Sandra, Samantha and nephew Corey (Bobbi Jo) Engler of Wellesley and her cousin Wayne Kay of Dundas. Predeceased by her loving parents Walter and Edna Kay and her Uncle Ken and Aunt Jean Kay.
Pat worked at the Home Hardware head office in St. Jacobs for over 40 years. Many thanks to friends from Home Hardware who continued to visit her after she entered long term care.
The family would like to extend our sincere gratitude and appreciation to the caring staff at Columbia Forest Long Term Care in Waterloo, especially Wendy who cared for Pat for all the years Pat was at Columbia Forest.
As expressions of sympathy donations to the Alzheimer’s Society of Perth County would be appreciated.
Cremation has taken place and burial will take place in the Spring in Dundas at a date TBA.
In loving Memory of a dear sister:
To hear your voice and see your smile,
To sit with you and talk a while,
To be together in the same old way,
Would be my greatest wish today
Heaven gained another beautiful angel.
We hope you are in resting in peace and together again with Pete.
I’m sure you will be growing the most beautiful garden of flowers in Heaven.
Love always. Xoxo
Corey, Bobbi-Jo & The girls

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Pats family . Pat as a long term employee of Home Hardware always had the interest of her fellow colleagues and dealers. She had time to chat as you met her in hallways.
I worked at Home Hardware Stores Limited for thirty-five years. I did not work directly with Pat, but whenever we crossed paths in the hallways or mailroom I always was met with her positive, cheerful disposition. She made the world a better place.
