Vale Patt Thaler

Pat Thaler Patricia Ellen Thaler (Patt), beloved mother of Island resident Helene Rankin and grandmother to Dylan, Sascha and Milo, passed away peacefully in Paliative Care at Townsville Hospital on Saturday 22nd September.

Pat had lived on the island part time for 14 years and full time for the last two years as she battled with cancer. She was a nurse for 30 years and had a great enjoyment of all people regardless of age race or creed. Pat was a master knitter who loved puzzles & reading and believed in kindness & laughter.

Helene would like to thank all Pat's friends and many Island locals who helped to make her last years a happy time despite her illness.

Pat is survived by her sisters Yvonne, Wendy & Laurie, who live in the UK; her children Peter, Sue & Helene & her grandchildren Dylan Sascha & Milo.

So glad to have been a part of her life. Truly an inspiring woman!, not to mention a kickass scrabble genius who annihilated all.

Well done Helene for the years of dedicated fulltime care of your mum at home. We will all miss her.

What a wonderful outcome for the school! I had a great time face-painting with Luke and Sasha, met lots of kids and parents,scored some great books at the Trash n Treasure stall, and even remembered to vote. Everywhere you looked people were enjoying themselves...such a tribute to the organisers. Well done!
