Sister of Bob Rundle and Velma, and sisters-in-law Dorothy Rundle and Kay Rundle. Fondly remembered by her many nieces, nephews and friends.
Predeceased by husband Earl, parents John Philip and Ruthadelle Rundle, brothers John, Paddy and William Rundle and sister-in-law Ardie Rundle.
Pat had a strong faith. She was a member of Christ Anglican Church in Listowel for more than 60 years. This is where she gave so much of her time -setting the alter for Communion, working at bazaars making sandwiches or pouring tea. Seldom did the ACW (Anglican Church Women) organize a rummage sale without her helping hands.
As well as her church life, she was in Bridge Clubs in Listowel for most of her life. Most of the ladies in the Bridge Club became her very good friends. She was also famous in Listowel to her friends and neighbours for her amazing light and fluffy hot cross buns at Easter and her delicious caramel corn at Halloween.
We will remember Mom, Nannie and GiGi when we see a spectacular sunset over Lake Huron and when we hear a pipe band.
The funeral service was held at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church (505 Wallace Ave. N. Listowel) at 11 a.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 15, 2023, with visitation for one hour prior. The service was livestreamed with a link available on the funeral home website. A reception followed the church service at the Listowel Golf Course.
Private family interment in Fairview Cemetery, Listowel.
