1929 - 2021
Mrs. Patricia Jane ‘Pat’ Mayhew passed away peacefully in her sleep, with her family by her side, on Saturday, February 13, 2021 at the age of 91 years.
Pat was born on July 11, 1929 in Innisfail, Alberta, and grew up in Markerville, Alberta. She married the love of her life, John Chester in March 1950, and they eventually settled on the family farm outside of Markerville, until their retirement. The couple then moved to Innisfail, Alberta. After Chester’s passing, she remained in Innisfail, until the last few years of her life; where she resided in the Bethany CollegeSide, Red Deer, Alberta.
Pat was the most cheerful mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend anyone could ask for. She took great joy in large gatherings, especially the ones she got to host. There was always food on the table, cookies in the jar and coffee in the pot, and she ALWAYS had a big smile on her face. She enjoyed family get togethers, sporting events that involved her family and travelling with Chester.
Pat will be lovingly remembered by her children, Ken (Kim) Mayhew and their children, Danielle and Holly; Connie Mayhew and her children, Travis, Stacie, Shianne, Lena and Tiffany; Rob (Bonnie) Mayhew and his sons, Kelly (Holly) Mayhew and Ryan and several great grandchildren. Pat will also be sadly missed by her sister, Ruth Haining, and her special companion, Ernie Marshall.
Pat was predeceased by her husband, John Chester, her parents, Lynford Kemp and Jeanetta McDonald and her brothers, Donald Kemp and Edward (Ted) Kemp.
