CUMPSTONE Patricia Ellen (Pat)
Aged 92. Passed quietly into rest with family at her side at Waikato Hospital after a short illness. Deeply loved and adored wife and soulmate of the late John. Dearly loved and treasured mum and mum-in-law of Claire and Tony Mans. Daughter of Kathleen & Herbert Browne and step-daughter of Bert Vose. Sister and sister-in-law of Yvonne and Rob Robinson.
God saw you getting weary, when a cure was not to be,
He closed His arms around you, and whispered, come to me.
So keep your arms around her Lord, and give her special care,
Make up for what she suffered and all that seemed unfair.
It broke our hearts to lose you, but you didn't go alone,
Part of us went with you, the day God called you home.
To us you were so special. Until we meet again, keep the jug on, the baking tins filled and have a crossword ready. Lots of love, hugs and kisses - your loving daughter and favourite son-in-law.
