Patricia Jean (née Rodger) Bowman

BOWMAN, Patricia Jean (née Rodger) - Peacefully with her family at her side, at Toronto Western Hospital on Tuesday, March 19, in her 87th year. Beloved mother of Gary (Nancy), Nancy (Carson Kelly), and Susan (Larry Code). Respected and loved by her Grandchildren, Connor and Dana Bowman, Jennifer Pollock (Kevin) and Jeff Kelly (Lydia), Adam Code (Melanie) and Sarah Code who will miss her dearly. Born in Hamilton, Mom grew up in Westdale and it was there she met the love of her life Brian (2014) and they enjoyed a wonderful 58 years together. Predeceased by her parents Iva and Robert Rodger, and sister Joan Moyle. Survived by sister Betty Cuppy of Peterborough and many nieces and nephews. Mom was a primary school teacher with the Hamilton and Halton Boards of Education for many years. She was a member of East Plains United Church in Burlington. An accomplished singer in her youth, she was a member of East Plains Choir, Musica Gloria and the Choral Belles. Born with a congenital heart defect, the doctors said she wouldn’t live past age 3, but she proved them wrong and led a rich and fruitful life even while toting her oxygen portable around for almost 20 years. She loved spending time at the cottage with Dad in Southampton where she painted, gardened and entertained friends. Our thanks go out to the wonderful staff in the Surgery and ICU units at Toronto Western Hospital and also to the doctors and staff at the Toronto General Hospital, Peter Munk Cardiac Centre for their concern and caring for Mom over the past years. Cremation has taken place. Visitation at SMITH’S FUNERAL HOME , 1167 Guelph Line (one stoplight north of the QEW) BURLINGTON (905-632-3333) on Friday April 5th, 2019 from 3-5pm and 7-9pm.
