Passed peacefully away on April 14th, 2021 in the presence of her loving family at the age of 90. Predeceased by her loving husband, Walt; parents, Shannon and Kathleen Clift; infant sister, Margaret; brothers, John, Tom and Frank; mother and father-in-law, Selina and Leo Chidley; son-in-law, Patrick Broderick; and sister-in-law, Rose Clift. Leaving to mourn with memories to last a lifetime, daughters, Dawn (Jim Peddigrew), Gaye Broderick, Peg (Glenn Goss) and Sandra Chidley; grandchildren, Christopher Peddigrew (Gill), Morgan Chidley, Mark Peddigrew, Megan Broderick (Wally Lane), Julia Roberts (Alan Barry), Ben Goss (Krysta Tobin) and Mark Broderick (Jennifer Smith). As she was lovingly called, ‘Patsy’ will be missed by her five great-grandchildren, Leah Smith, Jadyn King, Jonah Broderick, Mason Broderick and Sonny Peddigrew, who were her pride and joy; sisters-in-law, Alice Clift and Joan Clift; special cousins, Vickie (Gil Tanguma) of California, Elizabeth (Peter Targett), of England and Peter Henry (Phyllis) of Michigan; as well as many nieces and nephews.
Mom will be remembered for her selfless, easy-going nature, especially by her family. She looked forward to Friday night darts at the “The Club” (RCAFA) and a glass of wine with her friends. If you were lucky enough to be gifted with her shortbread, you know no one else could make them like she could. She was a fashion icon with a strong sense of style.
Our gratitude to the staff of 4 South B, HSC, who were so kind and compassionate to Mom in her final days. And we would be remiss if we did not thank her wonderful neighbours, Ron, Leona, Katie, Laura, Ryan and Dorothy, whose constant care and kindness enriched her life.
Flowers gratefully accepted, or donations in Mom’s memory may be made to the Special Olympics Mount Pearl. Visitation will be held at Carnell’s Funeral Home, 329 Freshwater Road on Friday April 16th from 11:00 am to 8:00 pm. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, a private funeral mass will be held on Saturday, April 17th at 11:00 a.m. from St. Peter’s Roman Catholic Church, Ashford Drive, Mt. Pearl, by invitation only. The funeral service will be live-streamed at that time from St. Peter’s for those unable to attend.
We will miss you, Mom, but we know Dad is waiting with open arms and we’re sure you are covering heaven’s dance floor.
Forever in our hearts…until we meet again.
