Harvey, Dr. Patricia T.

Age 69 years, of Dundas, Ontario, went to be with Jesus on Friday September 2, 2022 after a six month illness. Pat considered herself blessed to be born into a loving Christian family and to be taught from childhood the need to follow Jesus in one’s life. She became a medical retina specialist, a calling she thoroughly enjoyed and in which she was internationally renowned. Her expertise was equaled only by her kindness, as her numerous patients attest. Pat was highly committed to her church family at Philpott Memorial Church, where she was a lifelong member and where she served in many capacities. Her close loving relationships included her treasured best friend Stu Archibald and his daughters Jenny, Heather and Cathy, her two brothers John and his wife Mary, David and his wife Val, the children of both families, Jesse, Seth, Sarah, Jessica, and Jonathan, and the beloved great nieces and nephews. On September 10th at 10:30 a reception-visitation followed by the funeral service will be held at Philpott Memorial Church, 84 York Blvd, Hamilton, ON. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to Philpott Memorial Church, or Juravinski Cancer Centre, c/o HHS Foundation, Hamilton, ON.

Mary was active with her family and friends while always giving back through her volunteer work. She had a dry sense of humour and an intelligence that added to discussions whether it be about a book, art or an action plan. She made friends wherever she was: volunteering with Grandmothers of Steel, Unitarian church, square dancing, Carnegie and Hamilton Art Galleries, St Joseph’s hospital, neighbour to neighbour, NDP campaigns, Harvest Guatemala, and while working in a bookstore and fine jewellery boutique.

Mary’s family would like to thank Mary’s friends as well as the people at Residence on Augusta, Shalom village residence and long term care for ushering Mary through the challenges of aging with Alzheimers during Covid. We were moved by the compassion of the staff at St. Joseph Hospital who made her comfortable during her last days. The care they gave made the hardest days more bearable and for that we are grateful.

Family and friends are invited to a visitation August 22th from 1:00 to 2:00 pm, followed by a service at 2:00pm at Turner Family Funeral Home, 53 Main Street, Dundas.
