Obituary of Patricia Mary Brown

Patricia Mary Brown, 79, of Strathmore, AB passed away on March 9, 2021 due to complications of COPD.

Pat was born February 15, 1942 to Harold and Eunice Iles at Machynlleth, Wales in the UK. At age 10, she moved with her family to Calgary, Alberta where she graduated with honors from Queen Elizabeth High School.

After graduation, Pat worked as an administrative assistant for over 40 years. She enjoyed the jobs she had through the years and reluctantly retired earlier than she had wanted, for medical reasons.

Pat loved to sing and, on weekends, performed with a band. It was at one of these performances in Balzac, Alberta that she met and fell in love with her husband, Len. They married on September 29, 1961 and had many an adventure through the past 59 years.

Anyone who knew Pat knew of her extreme love of animals, horses, dogs, and cats in particular. Pat and Len were very involved showing horses in the AQHA show circuit. She made friends with many competitors and shared many laughs with them. Pat was especially proud of the success of their champion mare, PokeyLee Win. Pat was also an avid Calgary Stampeder fan and was a season ticket holder for many years.

Pat was predeceased by her parents, Harold and Eunice, and her infant brother, Billy. She is survived by her husband, Len; daughter Pam (Scott); grandsons Wynn and Max; and sister Rene.

At Pat’s request, no funeral will be held. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made directly to Alberta SPCA (online at or to S.T.A.R.S. Air Ambulance (online at
