It is with great sadness that the family of Patricia Gail Tanner, 78 of Lunenburg announces her sudden passing on Friday, July 30, 2021 at the South Shore Regional Hospital, Bridgewater. Born in Lunenburg, she was the daughter of the late Fred and Rhoda (Williams) Hall.
In her earlier years, Pat owned her own Beauty Shop and then closed it to raise her family and remained a homemaker for the duration of their marriage. She led a simple life caring for her husband, Gilbert and supporting her children in any way possible.
She and Gilbert enjoyed travelling Lunenburg County finding garage and yard sales every weekend up to her death. She loved Bingo immensely, making friends along the way and she will be dearly missed by the Mahone Bay Fire Department Bingo workers and patrons.
Pat is survived by her husband, Gilbert; sons, Peter (Susan) Tanner, Bridgewater, Tim Tanner, Lunenburg; daughter, Jennifer (Peter) Young, Western Shore; grandchildren, Nicole Sawler (Jon), Jeffery Young (Megan), Katelyn Hogue (Zack), Joli Tanner, Will-Jay Tanner, Mira-Kole Tanner, Tristan-Lee Tanner; great-grandchildren, Brent Sawler, Bryce Sawler, Sydney Young, Sawyer Young, Garrett Hogue.
She was predeceased by her parents and a sister, Glenda Wentzell and an infant brother, David.
Funeral arrangements are under the direction of the Dana L. Sweeny Funeral Home, 11213 Highway 3, Lunenburg. A service to celebrate Pat’s life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers memorial donations may be made to Lunenburg Fire Department. www.sweenyfuneralhome.ca
