A Teacher, volunteer, world traveller, orator, english scholar, wonderful Mother and friend has left this world a better place. Patricia Marie Delaney (child of the Universe as she often pointed out) was born in Grand Falls in 1930 to May Walsh of Argentia and James Delaney of Placentia. She was a gifted student and talented soprano who graduated Mount St Vincent University before marrying Austin Davis (deceased). They had five much loved children Richard (deceased), Gerry (Felice), Evelyn, Siobhan (Pat Coady) and Renee. She adored her grandchildren Brook, Jake, Delaney, Ryan and Marc who will all miss her dearly. A dedicated lifelong volunteer, she most recently contributed to VOWR and to the Seniors Resource Centre where she taught safety and fraud awareness. She travelled the world and had many great adventures with her best friend Susan Capps. She looked forward to her daily walks around Kenny’s Pond together with Susan and Verna Parsons – the ducks and crows will miss her treats. She loved her nieces and nephews, cousins and family very much and always appreciated their company and their kindness. She enjoyed her life at Kenny’s Pond Residence and had a full social calendar. She will surely find a good game of bridge in heaven. She lived her life to the fullest and often said she was blessed. As were we. Words can not adequately describe the gratitude the family feels for the incredible care, concern and kindness given by the nurses, doctors and therapists in both the ER and 4SB especially Krista and Dr Nedd. There truly are angels amongst us. Resting at Carnell’s Funeral home, 329 Freshwater Road. Visitation on Sunday, September 17th from 7 to 9 pm and Monday, September 18th from 2 to 4 pm and 7 to 9pm.
