Tompkins, Patricia Louise (nee Stepchuk) August 2, 1943 – April 10, 2021 It is with heavy hearts we announce the sudden passing of Patricia at her home in Mundare at the age of 77. She will be lovingly remembered by her daughter Fern, grandsons Justin (Taylor) and Caleb and their father Robert. Patricia is survived by her sister Beatrice (Harold) Holt and brother Victor; nephew Michael (Wanda); nieces Michelle (Lance), Kirsten and Courtney; extended family members; and her dear friend Nancy Tymchak. Patricia was predeceased by her father John, mother Eva (nee Basisty), and special friend Peter Polischuk. Patricia was born in Mundare and raised on the family farm. In her youth, she was an active 4H member in both the grain and dairy clubs and developed her skills as an accomplished baker and talented seamstress. She attended the University of Alberta in the Faculty of Education, returned to Mundare and taught elementary school for 32 years. Patricia was an active community member, coaching many volleyball teams and serving on the Mundare Agricultural Society (taking on the role of bench exhibit chair at the annual fair) and the Mundare Library Board. Patricia enjoyed travel and treasured her memories of trips to BC, Soviet Union, Las Vegas and Hawaii. Due to COVID restrictions, a private graveside service will be held at the Uwin United Church cemetery in the summer.
