Pat was my Nanna and we all miss and Love her so Much.
We would like to Thank Scrap for sponsoring Nanna's Memorial. It means the world the my family and I.
Patricia Margaret Jeffery was born to Eileen and Stan Jeffery (both dec.) in St.Kilda, Victoria, Australia. Pat has one younger sister Enid and two half siblings, Babe and Sunny Farn.
Pat had a tough childhood after her parents seperated and she lived with her father who was a P.O.W in WW1. Pat was also seperated from her sister at this time and later reunited. Pat joined the Land Army in WW2 and was working in Stanhope at the time. After the war Pat met the love of her life William (Bill) Rawlings in Stanhope and they were married 7th of August 1948. Bill and Pat ran a Dairy farm consisting of Jerseys and Fresians and they had 2 children, Margaret (Crozier) and Jeffery (my dad).
Pat worked hard on the farm. She would help milk the cows, get the kids off to school, take the milk into Stanhope in milkcans and never had electricity while doing all the households chores.
After health issues they left the dairy farm and moved to Melbourne in 1977 and they lived there till Bill died of a Heart Attack in 1991.
After the death of Bill, Pat moved to Euroa in 1993 because her son Jeff and family lived there and the town was surrounded by hills which Pat Loved.
Pat Loved Knitting and painting, Loved reading especially Mills ans Boons, loved the hills, water and fishing. Pat was a Very Independent Lady and Strong Minded and never liked to bother anyone. She was Gentle and Caring and welcomed anyone into her home and always had a cooked meal for any suprise visitors. Pat's favourite foods were Potato Crisps and Seafood especially Fish (or the Yellowbelly fish Jeff would catch), prawns and scallops. Even up to 3 days before she died she still managed a piece of fish and a scallop.
Pat had bad health for more than 20 years and she moved into a hostel in Mid 2004 and finally to Amaroo Nursing Home in 2006. Unfortunataly Pat's Body couldnt keep up with her.
Pat has 1 SIL Greg Crozier and 1 DIL Pauline (Chesterfield) Rawlings. She also has 7 Grandchildren Paul Crozier, Kerry (Crozier) and Mark Wilson, Mark and Daile (Hart) Crozier and Aimy Crozier. Jason and Julianne (Mallia) Rawlings, Charlene (Rawlings) and Andrew Cullen, Shane and Kate(Foster) Rawlings. 16 Great Grandchildren Sarah, Jack and Abbi Wilson.

I am writing this within 24 hours of Nannas passing. She is So Loved and So Missed by all who knew her. All that we know is that Nanna is with her best friend, her husband in Heaven and that she is now at Peace and No more Pain. Nanna will be cremated and her urn placed into the garden at her son Jeff's house because Nanna has always Loved the garden at mum and dad's.
Specifically: Will be Cremated
