ROOT, Patricia Dale

1951 – April 6, 2014

Patricia Dale Root passed away suddenly on April 6th, 2014 in Joshua Tree, California. She is survived by her beloved companion Warren Burd, son Eric (Shelly) Heinen; grandson Sean; great-grandson Jaden; daughter Anita (David) Wlasitz; grandchildren Soaryn, Kellan and James; step-son Steven (Sonia) Root; grandson Stefano; stepdaughter Angela Tsangaris; grandchildren Stathis and Stavros.

Born in Oshawa, Ontario in 1952, Patricia came to BC in the early 1970s, eventually settling in Campbell River in 1982. From 1984-85, Patricia took over the Merle Norman Cosmetics in the Ironwood Mall and it quickly grew and became the first ‘spa’ of its kind north of Victoria. Patricia’s ‘Ladies’ were always her world. As of late, Patricia was on cloud nine to be retired and travelling with her prince. She had been in Palm Springs, California for the past five months enjoying sun, friends, wine and many a song.

A Celebration of Life will be held at the Maritime Heritage Center on April 26th, 2014 at 1pm.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the John Howard Society of North Island’s Delaware Program.
