It is with sad hearts we share in the passing of Patsy (Patricia Sue Westenberg) Ratcliffe on Tuesday, August 28, 2018. She left us on a warm summer breeze in her 75th year with her family by her side. She will be longingly missed for the lilt in her laugh, the chickadee in her soul, the colour she shared in her art and her flowers, her dedication to volunteer work and especially for her steadfast love of all the little kitties and critters in her care. She leaves to mourn Roy Ratcliffe, her husband of 50 years, sister Ruth Farrow, brother Bill and his wife Nancy Westenberg, sister- in-law Sharon Westenberg, sisters-in-law Lois Trupp and husband Bud, Josephine Straus, Kathy Rusnak and Donna Ratcliffe. She also leaves many cherished friends, loved nieces, nephews and their families. She is predeceased by her parents Bruno and Wilda (Robertson) Westenberg, brothers Fred Westenberg and his wife Betsey, Jim Westenberg, and three nephews. Also predeceased by Roy’s parents Thelma (Carruther) and Cliff Ratcliffe, step-mother Dorothy Ratcliffe, sisters May (Jim) Dahl and Cora Ratcliffe, brothers Raymond Ratcliffe and Mel Ratcliffe. Patsy asked, that in lieu of flowers, you may make a donation to the cat rescue program with Pet Patrol (cheques payable to Pet Patrol) and that you simply “be nice to one another”. A Memorial Gathering in Patsy’s honour will be held on September the 9th from 1 to 5 p.m. with Words of Remembrance at 2:30 p.m. to be held at the home of Danny & Pam Farrow at 552656 Grey Road 23, Southgate Township (Dromore). Arrangements entrusted to the England Funeral Home, Mount Forest.
