Obituary for Sister Patricia Catherine Harrison, SSMI

Sister Patricia Catherine  Harrison, SSMI
Sister Patricia Harrison left us to meet her Lord at 11:00 a.m. September 29, 2017 at Mary Immaculate Health Care Centre, Mundare, one month after her 100th birthday.
Catherine (Sister Patricia) was born in McKim, Saskatchewan on August 29, 1917, daughter of Stephen and Thecla (nee Potrilecka). Catherine entered the Novitiate of the Sisters Servants of Mary Immaculate in Mundare on January 9, 1937, taking the name Sister Patricia. She made first profession of vows on July 22, 1939, and final profession August 15, 1945. Sister Patricia received her Teachers’ Certification in Saskatoon, before entering the Congregation. She taught from her earliest years of formation until her retirement in 1966- a total of 28 years. She taught in Alberta (Mundare, Edmonton), Saskatchewan (Ituna, Saskatoon, Prince Albert), Manitoba (Winnipeg), and Ontario (Windsor, Toronto, Kitchener). Throughout her many years in the teaching ministry, she also touched many young hearts in the catechetical ministry, through sacramental preparation in the various parishes she served, youth ministries such as sodality, summer catechisms, and camps. Demonstrating her musical abilities as a violinist, even prior to entering, Sister Patricia later studied music formally, ultimately certifying as an Associate of Music in 1971 with the Conservatory of Western Ontario to teach piano. She used this skill to teach private lessons in Winnipeg, Ancaster, Toronto and Calgary, returning to Winnipeg for her longest stationing, from 1972-2001. In 1973, she also took studies in, and later also taught guitar. The teaching of music theory also always accompanied her practical lessons. In all, she taught music for over 35 years.
Sister Patricia was predeceased by her parents, Stephen and Thecla; brothers, Bill, Peter, Henry and Nicholas; half-brothers, John and Mike; sisters, Jessie and Mary; half-sisters, Anne and Julia. She is survived and will be dearly missed by numerous nieces and nephews, and by the Sisters Servants. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Sisters Servants of Mary Immaculate.
Requiem Divine Liturgy Wednesday, October 4, 2017 at 10:00 a.m. at St. Joseph’s Home, Mundare. Basilian Fathers officiating with interment in Sts. Peter & Paul Ukrainian Catholic Church Cemetery, Mundare.
