Born in River Hebert in 1936, she was the daughter of Jack and Olive (McAleese) Green of River Hebert. She made her home in the community of Scotsburn for the past 61 years with her husband Ernie Patriquin who passed away earlier this year. She was employed locally throughout her life at Hamilton’s Cookie factory, West Pictou District Elementary and High School and Canada Post.

She was a devoted member of the Bethel Presbyterian Church in Scotsburn, the New Horizon’s Senior’s Club in Pictou and was an active volunteer in her community. Being quite the baker, her home-made donuts were well known and were on many Christmas lists. She was a loving wife, mother, sister, aunt and friend and will be dearly missed.
