Born in Halifax on November 22, 1931, she was a daughter of the late Florence (MARTIN) MIELKE and Gerald MIELKE. She was predeceased by brother, Peter MIELKE, and sister, Jackie (Sr. Margaret Patricia, South Carolina). A lifelong resident of Halifax, Pat attended Saint Thomas Aquinas School and St. Pat's High School. She graduated from the Nova Scotia Normal College in 1949 and, at the age of 17, started her teaching career at Ardmore and Alexander McKay Schools in Halifax. After taking a break to raise her children, she returned briefly to teaching at Ida Mae Marriott School in Spryfield in the mid 70s. Pat was a devout Catholic, dedicating much of her time to the church and those in need. Her church work included: the Archdiocesan Liturgical Committee, the Archdiocesan Family Life Committee, Chair - St. Agnes Church Parish Council, member - Our Lady of Perpetual Help Parish Council, Marriage Encounter Leader and 30 years with the Catholic Women's League. She served, as well, as a church lecturer, lay distributor and religious education instructor. She gave selflessly of herself, always finding time for the less fortunate, opening her home and her heart to many people of the years. She was passionately involved in several choirs over her lifetime including the Chebucto Community Singers, St. Agnes and Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church Choirs, 18 years with the Nova Scotia Tattoo Choir, 22 years with the Dal Chorale and countless Scratch Messiahs. Her children and grandchildren are the proud recipients of her love of song and music, as well as her great sense of humour. Much of Pat's life was spent at swimming pools, hockey rinks and baseball fields supporting her children's activities. Her years of dedication to the Waegwoltic Swim Team earned her the Mother of the Year Award. Above all, Pat was a devoted wife, mother and friend. She will be sadly missed by her family and all those whose lives she touched. Special thanks to Monica Flinn (Palliative Care nurses), Doctor Stewart Cameron, the Victorian Order of Nurses, and countless family and Friends, who supported Pat throughout her illness with care, compassion, visits, well-wishes and eucharistic ministry. Visitation will be held in J.A. Snow Funeral Home, 2666 Windsor Street, Halifax, on Saturday, January 6, from 2-4 p.m. and Sunday, January 7, from 2-4 p.m. A celebration of Pat's life will take place in Our Lady of Perpetual Help Parish, 2 Melody Dr., Rockingham, on Monday, January 8, at 10 a.m. Reception to follow.
