Obituary of Pat Benedetti

Just shy of her 95th birthday, Alice Patricia ‘Pat’ Dorothy Benedetti, passed away at University Hospital, on Thursday, July 15, 2021.

A graduate of U of T, Pat was proud to have risen to become the head of occupational therapy at the now-defunct, London Psychiatric Hospital.

A smart woman who enjoyed crossword puzzles and ‘Jeopardy’, Pat also enjoyed singing in her church choir.

She joins those who were precious to her; husband Emile “Benny” Benedetti, cousin Arlene Firth and her husband, Gordon Firth of Falls Church, Virginia.

Pat is survived by her youngest son, Andrew Benedetti, who served as her primary caregiver in her later years. She is also survived by son Tim Benedetti; daughter Patty Wilson; their respective spouses, Judy and Doug; grandchildren Greg and Steven Benedetti, Robyn and Holly Wilson, and their families as well.

Those wishing to make a donation in memory of Pat are asked to consider direct funding to a private or university research lab that is actively searching for a cure for Alzheimer’s Disease.
