Patricia “Pat” Cone (nee Radford), passed away peacefully on Friday, July 28 in Saskatoon at Luther Special Care Home.

After graduating high school, she moved to Saskatoon where she met Bert and married in 1957. During their 50 years of marriage, they raised 5 children together. Pat was predeceased by her husband Bert Cone; son-in-law Brian Ness; parents George and Pearl; siblings Bill (Rose), Hazel (Mel) Woods, Gwen (Fred McKee, Harold McKee), Bob, Connie (Angus) Speedie, Ethel (Stu) McEachern, Roy, Frank; and brother-in-law Bob Cone.

Pat and Bert lived in Northern Ontario for a number of years before moving back to Saskatoon in 1966. They moved to Plunkett in 1972 where they farmed and later ran the local hotel and store. Mom was a kind, patient, and loving woman. She loved doing all kinds of crafts and tending to her garden, but her family was the center of her life.
