, wife, mother and dear friend to all passed away in Tampa, FL on October 21, 2019 at age 89.

Petronella lovingly known as Patsy our Aunty Patsy by many was born in Krugersdorp, South Africa. She lived in South Africa the majority of her life until the passing of her husband and my father Graham. After Graham’s passing she moved to the United States to live with her son Terence, daughter-in-law Gloria and three dogs (Biscuit, Casey and Mylo) who she considered to be part of her family.

Petronella brought love, joy, laughter and support to many. She was seen as a mother figure to a number of friends that she developed over the years. She will be missed and mourned and we will always hold a place in our thoughts and hearts for her.

    To Terence and Gloria,

    Deepest sympathy to you both. Pat was so happy to be able to live with you in America. She loved being able to visit you while she was still living in her flat in South Africa and I was amazed how well she coped with her flights to and from her home to America. Heartfelt condolences from my children and grandchildren and myself.
    With love – Francis.
