Obituary of Pat Sigurjonsson

SIGURJONSSON: Patricia (nee Colbourne)-

It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Patricia Sigurjonsson on Saturday May 18, 2024 in Chatham, Ontario at the age of 87.

Pat was born in Bishop’s Falls, Newfoundland. Life took her to Toronto and eventually Chatham where she built her life with her family. However, Newfoundland remained close to her heart and she made numerous trips back to the “Rock”.

Pat was a wonderful, loving wife, mother, sister, aunt and friend. She was an accomplished artist and many of her paintings can be found in private collections around Chatham and across Canada. She saw the world through an artist’s eye and had a keen fashion sense. Playing bridge with her friends and reading were some of her favourite activities. Pat had a wonderful sense of humour and easily connected with people who crossed her path.

Pat will be lovingly remembered by her daughter, Enid, sisters Roma Boone (late Jim) and Phyllis Toms (late Roy), brother Bert Colbourne (Brenda), sister-in-law Enid Robinson (late Glen) and all of her cherished nieces and nephews.

She is predeceased by her daughter Jennifer, husband John, parents Eddie and Sadie (nee Lucas) Colbourne, brothers Don Colbourne (Audrey) and Bob Colbourne, sister Joyce Colbourne, son-in-law Geoff Palmer, sisters-in-law Tanis Sigurjonsson, Kay Sigurjonsson and Pat Rogers.

According to Pat’s wishes, cremation has taken place. A Celebration of Pat's life will be held at the Retro Suites Derby Room, 2 King Street W., Chatham on Tuesday, July 2, 2024 from 1:00 - 4:00pm. Donations may be made to a charity of your choice.
