Patricia McTurk

Peacefully on 10th June 2021, Patricia McTurk of Great Harwood. The devoted and much-loved wife of Ian, loving mother of Jackie and Andrew, dear step-mother of Paul and Ross and a cherished grandmother of Madeline, Maximus, and Eva.
Patrica’s working life was spent within Social Services for many years and she retired from her position as a Senior Probation Officer. Patricia was dedicated to her work and always gave it her full attention and was an extremely well-respected member of her team. 
An excellent ballroom dancer, Patricia always looked forward to dancing with her husband Ian, and together they competed in Ballroom and later became qualified Ballroom Dance teachers with the IDTA.
Patrica loved her gardening, which always bloomed in full colour throughout the seasons. Patrica loved activity holidays, exploring new experience and cultures, whether off on sailing or skiing holiday. Other interests included bowls, pilates, table tennis and flower arranging.

Patricia was a true lady who always earned the respect of all those that she met and always prepared to offer sound advice to others when requested.

No flowers by request. Please wear something bright to reflect Patricia’s personality.

What a terrible loss. We were privileged to have the pleasure of Pat and Ian teach us Ballroom Dancing at the community centre in Great Harwood. Pat’s enthusiasm for dancing was infectious and her attention to detail was on a different level, but she did not just talk the talk, Pat and Ian’s demonstrations were sublime. Pat enhanced our lives and we shall always remember her.
