Peaceful 05

Rebecca Mariam Louise Patel

May 23, 1965 ~ July 20, 2020 (age 55)


Rebecca Patel

Beloved mother, sister, and daughter, Rebecca passed away peacefully on July 20th, surrounded by her family. Born in London, England on May 23rd, 1965, she emigrated to Canada as a child with her parents, Marie Christiane and Ismail Patel, and siblings David and Nathalie.

Rebecca graduated from the Saint John School of Nursing in 1987. She was a consummate caregiver to many patients in Saint John and Maine, as well as to her brother and parents.

A straight talker, Rebecca spoke up whenever she saw unfairness. Anyone fortunate enough to taste her lamb stew or pepper steak can attest to her giftedness as a cook.

Foremost, she was a devoted mother to her children, David and Soraya Patel-Crabtree, who were the light of her life.

She is survived by them, sister Nathalie, and niece Sophie.

A drop in reception will be held at 10 Montgomery Crescent, Saint John, NB on Thursday, July 23rd from 2-4 pm.
