50, Sydney

It is with deep sorrow we announce the sudden passing of Patricia Bonaparte, of Sydney on May 15, 2009.

Patricia was born in Sydney, the daughter of Ronald and Sadie Dinn.

Patricia was a member of St. Theresa’s Parish. She graduated with her BBA honors in 1985 and also achieved a RCW diploma in 2004.

She is also survived by many nieces, nephews and cousins.

Patricia was predeceased by maternal grandparents, Ivy & Art Hillier; paternal grandparents, Ronald & Marg Dinn and sister, Maxine.
