Patricia Grace Ames (nee Morgan)
Passed away peacefully on January 18th, 2021 at Health Sciences North, in her 70th year.  
She was a dedicated wife to Douglas, her husband and partner of 49 years, as well as mother to Vanessa (predeceased), Emily (Adam) and Nathan (Alicia). She especially treasured her role as Grandma to Lucy, Dylan and Ellie of the Hallway Runners Club. Devoted sister to John, as well as sister-in-law to Stewart (Judy), Barbara (Anne), Brian (Debbie) and Steven (Debbie). She will be sadly missed by her many nieces, nephews, grand-nieces and grand-nephews.
She was born in Tanganyika to Richard and Doris Morgan (predeceased) and by the age of four had already lived on three continents.  This may have accounted for her love of travel and the pursuit of new experiences.
Her life-long love of books inspired her to study English Literature and earn an Honors BA from Laurentian University. This in turn led to her calling as a teacher in the International Baccalaureate program at LoEllen Park Secondary School.  Her passion for literature will be greatly missed by all her book club friends, colleagues, and former students.
Her easy laugh and welcoming smile, as well as her enduring kindness to others gained her a loving group of friends of whose support and companionship she was profoundly grateful.
A celebration of her life will be held in the coming months once we are able to gather together once more. Expression of sympathy or donations can be made in memory of Patricia to the Northern Cancer Foundation (
