PATTE, Edith Rosalie
Edie passed away peacefully and on her own terms in the arms of her two daughters, on November 17th, 2018 at Ross Memorial Hospital in Lindsay, Ontario. She was in her 91st year.
Edie was predeceased by her four sisters and two brothers. She was also predeceased by her husband of 65 years, Al (Alfred) Patte, in 2014.
She is survived by her two daughters, Karen Washbrook and Samara Navi. She is also survived by her son Alan Patte and her brother-in-law Truman Nash, as well as many loved and loving nieces and nephews.
Edie took much joy in her ‘best-ever’ five grandchildren: Jeff Washbrook (Courtney), Jenna Zack (Mike), Jordan Mandel (Laura), Ayla Mandel, and Taylor Navi, and in her seven great grandchildren, Brody and Cooper Washbrook, Makenna and Bennett Zack and Cadence, Callie and Scarlett Mandel.
