VAN EK – Patricia “TRISH” Anne
January 4, 1965 – April 4, 2008
It is with deep sadness that Trish’s family announces her passing after a long and courageous battle with cancer. There wasn’t anything that gave Trish greater joy than her family. She will be deeply missed by her husband Mark, daughter Rachael, son Jacob, father Paul, stepmother Gail, sister Michele (Allan) with nieces Claire and Abby, sister Shelley (Merritt) with nephew Zachary and niece Lily, as well as treasured extended family members and very dear friends. Trish was a kind and loving person who touched so many people in so many ways; this will be her lasting legacy. She will never be forgotten and always loved.
A Celebration of Life will take place on Saturday, April 12th, 2008 at 2:00 PM at the Northwest Langley Baptist Church, 20025 91A Avenue (next to Colossus), Langley, BC. In lieu of flowers, the family requests a donation to the Canadian Cancer Society, in honour of Trish, to aid in the fight against cancer.
