Much loved daughter of Deirdre Graham and the late Anthony Graham, and widow of the late Robert Patterson; younger sister of Victoria Talbot-Kelly and James Graham. She will be dearly missed by her two sons, Henry and James. She was beautiful and talented with an Honours degree in BioChemistry from Waterloo University.    She applied her skills at the Canadian Bank Note Co. for over 26 years, contributing as a Special Projects Manager producing security features for items such as passports and polymer notes for many countries including Canada and New Zealand.
