Obituary notice
It is with profound sadness and sorrow that we announce the passing of Pat Jacques.
Pat passed away peacefully with her family by her side on Saturday, Jan. 12, 2019 in Surrey Memorial Hospital after an 11-day battle due to complications from pneumonia.
Pat was born on July 17, 1950 in Yorkton, Saskatchewan to her parents John and Anne Shuparsky. She was the oldest of three children.
Pat and her sisters Isabelle and Doreen grew up on a farm in Wroxton, Saskatchewan before moving to Regina in the early 1960s.
In 1965 Pat started attending Balfour Tech High School in Regina. It was there in 1967 that she met her husband Ron. They dated and were married, Oct. 10, 1970.
In 1972, they moved to Prince Albert, which is where their oldest son Ian was born in 1975.
In 1977, the family moved to Saskatoon. In 1980, the couple was blessed with twins, Monique and Kevin. They lived in Saskatoon for 11 years before moving to Vancouver in 1988.
In the Vancouver area, Pat worked as a bank teller, and as a sales representative for an office equipment company, before joining the Coquitlam NOW newspaper in the early 1990s. Pat had a rewarding and distinguished career with the NOW newspaper as an award-winning sales associate.
She retired after 20-plus years with the newspaper.
Throughout the years, Pat and Ron travelled extensively seeing the world with their children, but primarily together on 23 cruises.
Pat also travelled with Ron sharing in his passion for sports, primarily with his love of coaching and playing competitive softball.
Pat’s other passions included cooking, and spending time with her family and friends. She and Ron loved to host and entertain and their gatherings were full of great food, great wine, laughs and great experiences.
Pat is loved and cherished by hundreds of friends.
She is survived by her husband Ron of 48 years, son Ian, son Kevin (Inna), daughter Monique (D’Arcy), grandchildren Payton and Declan, sisters Isabelle (Alan), Doreen (Lorne), along with several nieces, nephews, cousins and aunts.
The family would like to thank the doctors and nurses at Surrey Memorial Hospital for their tireless efforts in Pat’s health battle.
