SPANNIER, Patricia

SPANNIER, Patricia

It is with great sadness that family announces the passing of Patricia Spannier. She passed away peacefully on December 29, 2018. Often known as “Patti” or “Tish”, she was a beloved Wife, Mother and Grandmother.
Patti is survived by her husband of 51 years, Donn; her sons Grant (Judy), Bryan (Twyla); daughter Karen (Tim); grandchildren Jesse, Lauryn, Aidan, Owen and Lily; and brother Bill Seymour.
Patti was born in Regina, SK on January 27, 1944. She completed her Nursing at Regina General Hospital. She married Donn on March 25, 1967, and they raised their children in Kelowna, BC. She enjoyed canning, cooking, gardening, bowling, reading and a Saturday night game of cards. She will be remembered for always making everyone feel welcome in the Spannier home. As her children approached adolescence, she began working full time as a nurse at the Underhill Clinic. She was loved by the staff, adored by her patients, and referred to as “Florence Nightingale.” She will be deeply missed and will live in our hearts forever. We would like to thank Dr. Cosmann, Dr. Stone and the staff at Cottonwoods and David Lloyd Jones for the exceptional care they gave to Patricia, and for the compassionate support they gave to our family. A Celebration of Life will be held at later date. Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting

    Our condolences are with you and your families; Karen, Bryan, Grant, and Donn. Wishing you all the strength, love, and support to endure this difficult time. Hold close the memories of your family and home, all the gatherings you hosted both planned, and not. The Spannier's was the place to go, to get everyone together; Patti was a big part of making it that way. Good humour, good fun, always welcome.

    She was a wonderful nurse and my kids loving going to see Dr Aldous because of her. She was so kind and patient and always new who you were. She was an all around beautiful person. May all your many memories ease some of the loss.

    To all the family. I grew up in Fort Qu'Appelle as a neighbour, a little younger than Tish but she was always kind to everyone in the neighbourhood.

    Karen and family, I am so sorry for your loss. She was a lovely person and a great mom. I remember many times talking with your mom on the phone trying to figure out if you two girls were doing what you said you were doing!!! That's back when there were only house phones! Your mom was always so calm, always welcoming - she will be missed.
