Patricia Gloria Kimball (Possey)

December 29, 1928 - July 16, 2023


It is with an extremely heavy heart that we announce that Patricia Gloria Kimball (formerly

Haeber, née Possey) passed away, suddenly, on the sunny afternoon of July 16, 2023, in South

Surrey, British Columbia. Patricia is survived by her five children, Joanne, Terence, Lee, Brent

and Lori: She was the proud grandmother of 11 grandchildren, 19 great grandchildren and one

great, great grandchild, and a loving aunt to her niece Janet and nephews Wayne, Jim and Del.

Patricia was predeceased by her parents Ethel Alice (Hook) and Charles Possey, her two

husbands Edward Herman Haeber and Floyd Ivan Kimball, and by her brother Stanley, sister-in-

law Florence, sister Hazel, brother-in-law David and her nephew Jim.


Patricia was born in Stettler, Alberta on Dec. 29, 1928. She soon moved with her family to

Fernie, BC, and then on to Vancouver. Patricia endured two marriages (her words), raising the

five children from her first marriage mostly on her own, in Fleetwood and, after marrying again,

in Delta, BC. She loved music, reading, dancing, sunbathing and watching the crazy antics of

Lucille Ball on television. She believed, steadfastly, that she was related to Johnny Carson (his

mother’s maiden name was Hook). Patricia loved animals, and often took in strays and rescue

animals to care for them, including her Shih Tzu, Brindle, and her cat, Nikki.


Patricia was known best for her witty sense of humour, kindness, generosity, and her unfailing

belief that everyone was created equally. Her children share fond memories of her adeptness at

turning dinners comprised of either baking powder biscuits, fruit cocktail or boiled garlic

sausage into a treat, rather than a reflection of earlier, hard times. She had an uncanny ability

to shrink a perfectly good roast to a third of its size, often pulling a delectably roasted prime rib

off of the BBQ only to throw it into the oven for several hours because “meat needs to be



Patricia most enjoyed laying in the sun by the swimming pool. During the summer she hosted

many family dinners poolside and watched her grandchildren play in the water. She also kept

Christmas largely, with her family overflowing from bedrooms and couches so that they could

all be together on Christmas morning.


In her last months, Patricia suffered from increasing dementia; however, she reminisced fondly

about her parents and her sister, and enjoyed telling stories about them. God willing, she is

spending her time with them now.
