Patricia Marie DeDura Bloski

Peacefully past after a short illness at the
Ottawa General Hospital on January 18, 2019.
Patricia was born in Port Arthur (Thunder
Bay), Ontario on January 4, 1947 to Helga
Myllymaki and William DeDura.
Married to Seaforth Bloski (deceased).
Beloved Mother to John, Kellie (Francois),
James, and Kara (Kenny).
Devoted and proud Grandmother to Kyle

Will be missed by her siblings Donald (Nellie), Harvey, and Frances.
Predeceased by Raymond (Evelyn) and Audrey.
Always much loved and adored by her in-laws, nieces, nephews,
cousins, and extended members of the Bloski family.
Patricia had worked as a Registered Nursing Assistant at St Francis
Memorial Hospital in Barry’s Bay the majority of her nursing career.
She was proud and honoured to assist with births in the labour and
delivery department years ago and was dedicated to the care of
young and old alike.
She was a kind, generous person with a deep spirituality.
She was an animal and nature lover.
Patricia was quite creative and enjoyed many crafts such as tole
painting, Ukrainian Easter Egg painting, sewing, quilting, crochet, and
knitting.
Pat was a Ottawa Citizen reader who enjoyed doing the daily
puzzles, a regular CBC Radio listener, and life long reader. She
enjoyed TV shows such as The Social and The View, and game shows
such as Family Feud.
Patricia was a wonderful cook and baker. When you came to
her kitchen she loved to spoil you by laying out a spread that was
legendary.
Although Patricia’s illness was short , she was able to pack quality
time in with her loved ones. She had a wonderful Christmas and
was delighted to enjoy her last birthday. She was a loving, generous
person and we will all miss her terribly but the memories will live on.
Godspeed Patricia.
Mass of Christian burial was celebrated January 26, 2019 at St.
Hedwig’s Roman Catholic Church with internment in the spring.
Donations in memory of Patricia can be made to the Canadian
Cancer Society or the St. Francis Valley Health Care Foundation.
