April 27, 1939 – December 16, 2020
On Wednesday, December 16, 2020, Patricia (Pat) Jakubowski, loving wife, mother and grandmother, passed away at the age of 81. Pat was born on April 27, 1939 in Grand Forks, B.C. to Nick and Mary Zibin.
On January 5, 1963 she married the love of her life and soul mate, Larry Jakubowski. Together they raised two daughters, Misty and Trisha. Pat and Larry moved around a lot during their marriage (10+ times) and finally settled in Grand Forks in 1976.
She worked at the Credit Union for over 30 years. Pat’s pride and joy were her flowers, garden and her grandchildren (not necessarily in that order). Pat was predeceased by her parents, sister, Dolly Esovoloff and brother, George Zibin. She is survived by her sisters, Mary Lodder and Margaret Saukarookoff, sister-in-law, Diane Zibin, her husband, Larry, her two daughters, Misty and Trisha (Brent) and her three grandchildren, Zachary, Meagan and Jacob and step-grandchildren, Jessica and Murray.
Pat passed peacefully at Ivy House, in the Silver Kettle, with her husband by her side. The family would like to thank all of the staff at Ivy House and the Silver Kettle for their care and kindness.
There will be no funeral services or celebrations as this was Pat’s request. Donations can be made in Pat’s name to the Alzheimer Society of Canada.
