Patricia was born in Taber on December 31, 1947 to Michael and Jeanette Powell and was the middle child in her family. She grew up helping her dad with farming and her mom with household chores. Patricia participated in the 4-H Sugar Beet Club and worked at the Tower Theatre. She mostly loved being her dad’s sidekick and she was known to him as his “peanut”.
Patricia was married on July 1, 1967 and had two children. She raised her family on the farm and had a strong love for all the animals but especially her dogs and cats. She loved to sew and do various crafts such as cross stitch and crocheting.
Later in life, she spent a lot of time with her mom taking her shopping and to the coffee shop. She loved to garden and made delicious tomato sauces and salsa that she shared with her family. In recent years, she has been spending her time exploring the outdoors with Andrew camping and seeing a butterfly house on one occasion last summer. Patricia even tried white water rafting a few years ago that was completely out of her comfort zone. She will be dearly missed.
