Patricia (Pat) Louise Lingel, loving wife, mother and grandmother, passed away on January 21, 2021. She was 68. She succumbed to COVID-19 after battling cancer. Her family was grateful to be by her side as she passed peacefully.
Pat grew up in Canwood, Saskatchewan. She trained as an Licensed Practical Nurse(LPN) in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. She continued in her career as a nurse for 25 years, spending most of her time in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan and retiring in 2016.
Pat is survived by her loving husband of 17 years, Allan Lingel; her children, Paul Gibson (Taryn) and Carla Boisvert (Jason); her stepchildren, Joey Lingel (Jessica), Mandy Lingel, and Lindsay Szydlowski (Vince). Pat is also survived by her sisters and brothers: Julie Lutter (Reinhold), Connie MacLeod (Cameron), Lynn Schiele (Lyle), Kim Odegaard and Scott Odegaard (Diane).
Among Pat’s many loves were her grandchildren: Daisy, Carter, Asher, Olen, Sona, Violet and Lacey.
Pat was predeceased by her father Walter Odegaard in 1983, her son Neal Gibson in 2015 and her mother Theresa Odegaard in 2016.
As a nurse Pat treated each patient with compassion and dignity. As a mother and grandma she was involved, caring and thoughtful. She enjoyed gardening, reading and travelling. A recent highlight was travelling to Sweden where she was able to connect with relatives.
Pat never failed to offer kindness and honesty.
She will be remembered as quiet and often funny – finding joy in all she did. She was strong, supportive and generous.
She will be dearly missed by those close to her.

The first thing that I’d like to do
Is to save every day till eternity passes away
Just to spend them with you”
