Patricia Anne (Heffernan) Bissell

October 24, 1936 ~ January 23, 2022 (age 85)


BISSELL, Patricia Anne (nee Heffernan)

Peacefully at the Peterborough Regional Health Centre on Sunday, January 23rd, 2022 at the age of 85. Beloved wife of the late Leonard (2005). Loving mother of Susan Bissell (Jim Himes) and Kevin Bissell (Elizabeth). Proud grandmother of Jasmine Bissell-Gratton, Justin Bissell, Michael Bissell and Sarah Bissell. Great-grandmother of Carter Noonan Bissell. Anne is 'survived by her sister' Rena Lindsay (nee Heffernan).  Anne was a native of Ottawa, Ontario. She spent most of her married life in Whitby, and a decade ago called Millbrook her home.

Anne loved her family, her dog Lolly, and her home, community and neighbours. Her love of birds buoyed her in her daily treks to her backyard, and her feeders. These are the same bird feeders neighbours kept full in Anne’s weeks at PHRC, and briefly at Applewood.

Donations to Community Care Millbrook. Cremation has taken place. Anne will be laid to rest with her husband Leonard at the Groveside Cemetery, Whitby, Ontario in the Spring/Summer/Fall of 2022.  Condolences can be expressed at
