Born in St. Stephen, NB, she is the daughter of the late Bernard and Lillian Frances (Lawton) Gregson.

  Pat worked many years as Payroll Clerk for School District 10 from where she retired. Pat enjoyed spending time with family and friends, working alongside Gary on whatever project was in the works at the time, from building a home, to cottage, and finally the motor home. She was talented in many things and if you saw the motor home and the craftsmanship that was put into it, truly amazing.

  Pat was predeceased by her husband Gary and her son Shawn.

  By Pat’s request, there was no visitation. Cremation took place. A private family graveside service was held at St. Stephen Rural Cemetery on Wednesday, October 13, 2021, where Pat, Gary and their son Shawn were laid to rest.

  In lieu of flowers, donations to Parkinson Canada, Passamaquoddy Lodge or charity of one’s choice would be appreciated by the family. Online condolences to the family or donations can be made at
