Born Mannville, Alberta

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our dear Mother. Pat was also fondly referred to as Patsy by her family and friends. She is survived by her brothers; Brian Golish of Medicine Hat, Bob Golish of Merritt and Jack Golish of Duncan. She is predeceased by her other siblings, Doris Tansowny, Bud Golish and Tommy Golish. Mom is survived by her eight children; Brad Smyth (Evelyn) of Merritt, Brenda Raabe (Neil) of Duncan, Rhonda Murdock (Dan) of Vernon, Kelley Smyth (Mary) of Merritt, Patrick Smyth of Burnaby, Shane Smyth (Heather) of Tsawwassen, Laurone Smyth (Doug) of Lumby and Mitch Smyth (Leigh-Ann) of Vernon. She is also lovingly remembered by her seventeen grandchildren and her six great grandchildren.
A family celebration of her life was held on what would have been her 80th Birthday. Also in her memory a celebration will be held at a later date in the summer. Donations in her memory can be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
