It is with sad hearts that we announce the sudden passing of our dear wife and mother, daughter, sister, grandmother and friend, Olga Jozefa Patterson (Oniszeczko), at the Tillsonburg District Memorial Hospital on Thursday, October 29, 2020 in her 62nd year. She is survived by her husband Ken, children Kristina (Aaron) Clark, Stefan (Cynthia) Patterson and Kathryn (Patrick) Bodnar; her grandchildren Grace, James, Victoria, Matthew & Lucas; her mother Josephine; sister Mary, and many others who loved her deeply.
Olga had a big heart, sharing her warmth and kindness with everyone she met. Olga loved her family. She enjoyed spontaneous country drives with Ken and was excited to get back into curling with him. She enjoyed preparing large feasts for her family and gathering everyone together for the holidays. Her children and grandchildren brought her so much joy; she would readily agree to babysit, play games, colour, chase bubbles and have a tea party. Deeply rooted in her faith, Olga was an avid church goer and proud member of St. Mary’s Parish. She was heavily involved with the church and enjoyed sharing her love of God with others. A primary school teacher for 32 years, Olga loved children and marveled at how they learned new things. She regularly volunteered within the community and with causes close to her heart. She enjoyed visiting with friends, family vacations, trips to the salt cave and taking care of others. Olga was one of the best people you will ever meet and she will be missed.
