 [19th March1933 to 24 August 2016]
  by Grace Morris

I first meet Pat when I started training my Cocker Spaniel at Angmering Dog training Club, which was held in Angmering Village Hall, the only dog training club in the area in those years, [ some 50 years a go !!]. Pat was training her pet Labrador, Sheena. I was asked to join their committee and  Pat was already a committee member. 

After a few years Pat and myself , along with another couple of friends, namely Peter and Paddy Ball decided that a club further along the coast, nearer Bognor, would be a good idea. We found a hall , North Bersted Church Hall, and an experienced Trainer and several like minded friends to form committee of which Pat was a member. Due to having two young children Pat's time was a bit limited. 

Pat's next dog was her first Flatcoated Retreiver, called Kirsty, the breed she had for the rest of her life. Pat did Obedience competitioins and Breed showing with some success. 

Over the years Pat has served the Club as a long timed committee  member and was  for a number of years secretary at a very busy time in the Club's history when the Club ran Open Obedience Shows, - which in those grew like Topsy-, meaning a lot of work for Pat. Throughout and up to recently, being the Club's Chairman, she has also been a trainer for classes Beginner to A & B Classes.

 Throughout her life Pat and her family have kept pet dogs - but it was her beloved Flatties that retained her interest, which included breeding several litters of which many were show winners. Pat also served on the Flatcoated Retriever Club's committee as their Treasurer for a number of years, only giving up this position a few years ago. Pat also Judged the breed and was a Championship qualified Judge for the breed.

I'm sure Bognor Club and the Flatcoat Society members will all miss Pat. but will allHave good memories fo her time with them. 

Googbye my friend, - Grace Morris
