Patricia Louise Holm, age 59, died peacefully in her home on October 1st, 2019, after a five-year battle with Multiple Myeloma. She was born in Cambridge (Galt) to Wallace and Alma Brown on July 2, 1960. She travelled extensively as a young woman and her jobs included work in Laar, Germany, Calgary, Alberta, the North West Territories and Revelstoke before she settled down, with her husband John Harmsworth. They built a lovely home together on Blueberry Marsh Road in Oro-Medonte and had two sons, Jacob and Simon. For a number of years Pat managed the Ministry of Transport Office in Elmvale. She and John then ran a B and B from their home. Pat’s forté was in giving of her time, talents, and love to others. She had a tremendous work ethic and put her heart and soul into serving others.
