Pat Anne Lesser
Pat (Patricia Kelty) Anne Lesser, 66, passed away at 12:50 PM on Saturday, October 26, 2019 at the Dr. Everett Chalmers Hospital in Fredericton, New Brunswick. Pat was born June 16, 1953, in Kapuskasing, Ontario and responded solely to Pat--heavens help you if you tried to call her Patricia.
Her husband Brian preceded her in death as did their daughter Courtney. She loved both of them deeply for all her life and continues doing so even still.
Pat is survived by her son Benjamin, who is impossibly lucky to have had such a great mother and friend. She is also survived by her beloved sister Jane, her soul sister Karen, her dear friends of so many years Louise and Wendy, many treasured friends from Terrace Bay, and was loved by others still, old friends and new acquaintances alike.
Pat loved to make people laugh and loved to find the lighter side of things in even the darkest of times; she loved chocolate, coconut, and ice cream (separately or all together); she loved cats, birds, and squirrels; she loved cookies and coffee and dunking one into the other; and Pat especially loved correcting people who referred to her son as Ben (though there were a few special exceptions to that).
Pat's ashes will be interned at Forest Hill Cemetery in Fredericton, New Brunswick, alongside those of Brian and Courtney. In the gross misfortune of her death, solace is delivered by their opportunity to reunite.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be sent to Lupus Canada or to a choice that is meaningful of the donor.
We should all be so lucky to have a Pat in our lives.
