Patrick, Jackie


1931 - 2020

LENNOXVILLE – Jackie Patrick (nee Marie Jeanne D’Arc Jacqueline DeBlois) passed away peacefully in her home on Saturday January 4, 2020 at the age of 88 under the exceptional and loving care of the Grace Village professional staff.  

Born December 15, 1931 in Kirkland Lake, Ontario, Jackie was the daughter of Arthur DeBlois and Marie Deblois (nee Ménard).  

Jackie will be forever remembered by her beloved children: Michael and his wife Anne, Jill (Lou Marone deceased 2015) , Christopher and his wife Maureen, Kelley-Anne and her husband Charles, Scott and his wife Johanne, Sean and his wife Simone, her 18 wonderful grandchildren, and seven (soon to be eight) great-grandchildren.  

Widow of the late Donald Patrick (deceased 1981), Jackie was a devoted and loving wife, mother, Grandma, Grandmaman and Great-Grandmother to us all. Jackie will be sadly missed yet always joyfully present in our lives and the lives of the many who had the honour of knowing her.  

"If I had a flower for every time I thought of you ... I could walk in my own garden forever." — Alfred, Lord Tennyson  

She was preceded in death by her sister Betty, and three brothers Johnny, René, and Paul.  

Throughout her 60+ years as a Lennoxville resident, Jackie’s selfless commitment to her community and local charities – second only to her family – is her greatest legacy.  

The Patrick family will be forever grateful for the extraordinary care provided her at the Connaught Home and Grace Village. In her final days, the care, attention and compassion she received was beyond compare. To all the nurses, caregivers, kitchen, recreation and administrative staff, we thank you.  

Visitation will be held at Cass Funeral Home, 3006 College St, Sherbrooke, on Friday January 17th from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm and again at 7:00 to 9:00 pm.  

Funeral services will be on Saturday January 18, from 2:00 pm at Grace Village, located at 1515 rue Pleasant View, Sherbrooke, Qc.

Celebrations are to follow at the Golden Lion Pub in Lennoxville. All are welcome!

In lieu of flowers, donations to the Grace Village Care Foundation (1515 rue Pleasant View, Sherbrooke, QC, J1M 0C6) would be greatly appreciated.

Jackie Patrick

Our sincerest condolences to all in the Patrick family. Jackie was indeed a special lady. She touched a stranger’s life deeply- that of my mom who Jackie befriended at the St FRANCIS Manor and then at Grace Village. My mom revered Jackie and we all remember and appreciate her kindness and gentle way. May she Rest In Peace.

I am so sorry to hear of your mom's passing. I have such amazing memories of her.

Jackie was a wonderful lady who took in all these stray kids and gave us a home away from home sometimes for a night, a weekend or just an afternoon. She was very special and I will always remember her smile fondly. My deepest sympathies to all of you during this difficult time.
