Pat Kreke 1950 — 2014

Pat Kreke

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Pat Kreke of Logan Lake, BC, on June 20th, 2014 at 63 years of age. Pat is survived by her loving husband Art, children Trevor (Lori) Kreke of Smithers, BC, and Stacey (Eugene) Kreke of Fort St. John, BC, as well as grandchildren Hannah, Montana, Ryan, Sophia and Evan, and brothers Wayne (Brenda) and Dennis (Ann). Pat is predeceased by her mother Norma Stromquist, and father Riley Stromquist.

Pat was born on November 16th, 1950 in Prince Albert, SK, and was raised and went to school in La Ronge, SK. She met her life-long love, Art, while he was working construction in La Ronge. This is where their children, Trevor and Stacey were born. Art’s work in the mining industry led the family to Logan Lake in 1972, where Pat resided until her passing. In her younger years, Pat enjoyed sports, such as figure skating, curling and baseball; she also loved cooking and entertaining. A devoted mother and grandmother, Pat enjoyed nothing more than spending time with her family snowmobiling, camping and exploring BC, when not at their cabin in the Cariboo. She was taken too early, and will be dearly missed by her family and friends.

The family wishes to extend a special thank you to Dr. Ruth Farren, Dr. Evan Rollheiser, the staff at RIH, and the staff at Kamloops Hospice.

In lieu of flowers, donations in Pat’s name to the Kamloops Hospice would be greatly appreciated.

A Celebration of Pat’s Life will take place at 2:00 pm on Saturday, June 28th, 2014, in the Black Bull Pub in Logan Lake, with Chris and Claire Newman officiating.

    Cousin Art & family,
    We were so sorry to read of the passing of Pat. Yes, all too soon. I have fond memories of your help after my car slid off the road one Winter near Lillooet. Also good memories of you at our Dad (August Hoene’s) funeral in Kamloops. With sympathy,
    Loretta Hoene & Pauline Weber
