Pat Wadsworth passed away peacefully in Vancouver on August 16th, 2018 following a long and courageous battle with Alzheimer’s disease.
Pat was born and raised in Vancouver and was a descendant of founders of both our city and our province. A graduate in 1955 of the 5 year combined nursing program at UBC and the VGH School of Nursing, nursing in BC has so benefited from her passion for nursing. Registered Nurses Foundation, Nursing at VGH and BC Health are just a few organizations who were lucky enough to have her on their team! As a woman pioneer in nursing and health care administration in BC, she was the recipient of innumerable honorary distinctions in recognition of her contributions.
