It is with great sadness the family of Patricia Beatty announces her passing surrounded by loved ones on July 12th, 2021, at the age of 72 years. Born in Sarnia, Ontario, on December 30, 1948, Pat moved to Sudbury in 1971 to begin her teaching career at Confederation Secondary School, where she remained until her retirement in 2004. Upon arriving to Sudbury, she met the love of her life, Ian Beatty (predeceased 2011). They married and resided in Hanmer and Sudbury for the remainder of her years. Beloved mother of Steven (Kailey), Clare (Jimmy) and Charles (Louise). Forever loved and remembered by her grandchildren, McLaren, Tejada, Marguerite, Augustin, Declan, Tessa and Maisie. Daughter of the late Charles and Edith Rupar. Dear sister of David Rupar, Tony Rupar (Rita) and Joan Grant (Ian). Lovingly remembered by her nephews and nieces. In her 72 years Pat always had a great sense of humour and would regale others with funny stories. Pat maintained an active lifestyle throughout her life with downhill skiing, cross-country skiing, walking and most recently curling. Pat was an incredible mother who provided a rich, fun-filled life and continued to support her children in their adult lives in every adventure or endeavour. She took pride in her family and extended family and was the glue that held everyone together. Her home was the gathering place for family members and friends and many fond memories will be remembered by many. Most of all, Pat was a dedicated wife, loving mother, and a cherished grandmother. She touched the lives of everyone she met and will be greatly missed by family and friends. A celebration of life will be held at a later date.
