Afternoons spent "ramming the roads" with her pals, sisters Pansy Newman and Dorothy Young were the best! A devoted mom, she was very proud of both of her daughters and all of their accomplishments.
She is survived by her husband, Charles A. Bridges, and her two daughters, Rebecca Bridges and Vivian Blatt, and son-in-law, Greg Blatt. She is also survived by brothers, Wallace Townsend and Joseph Townsend, and sisters, Alice Craig and Muriel Edwards, and many, many nieces and nephews.
She was predeceased by brothers, Rodney, Anthony and Arthur Townsend, and sisters, Constance Barnes, Dorothy Young, Pansy Newman, Florence Ashby, Mary Glidden and Ruby Townsend.
Patricia loved nature and had a green thumb. In her memory, plant something, encourage something already planted or thank a bee for its hard work as you walk by.

His abilities to talk to anybody and fix anything allowed him to positively impact many lives. Educated by life, he was a mechanic, crane operator, truck driver, carpenter, electrician, plumber – a “jack of all trades”. He was the trusted driver for every trip out west with friends and the cheer when he won the first Harley draw in 2000 was a testament to the high regard in which he was held.
Ron passed peacefully at home after a family gathering with his lifemate Leslie, and sisters, Debbie and Shelli, at his side.
He made the world a better place and will be sorely missed by his partner of 35 years, Leslie Parrish; his children, Chelsea (Jurrien), Jeff (Carly); granddaughter, Jemma; brother, Barry; sisters, Donna (Cecil), Debbie (Donnie), Norma (Heather), Laurie (Cindy), Shelli (Ron); numerous nieces, nephews and friends.
He was predeceased by his parents; brothers, Leigh, Ray and Eddie; sister, Faye, and nephews, Steven and Ronnie.
By request there will be no visitation. A memorial service will be held at a later date.
For those who wish, remembrances to the Lynnfield Cemetery, Charlotte County Cancer, Extra-Mural or a charity of one’s choice would be appreciated by the family. Condolences may be sent to the family online at www.mehanfuneralhome.ca
