Obituary of Avelina Fitzpatrick

Please share a memory of Avelina to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

It is with broken hearts the family of the late Avelina Fitzpatrick announces her passing on Thursday June 9, 2022 at Chancellor Park, St. John’s at the age of 81 years.

Leaving to mourn with loving and precious memories children Martha (Patrick), Dale (Jonathan), Fred (Diane), Donna (Ches), Debbie (Rob), Mary (Wes), Peter (Michelle), Daphne (Darrell), Scott; 29 grandchildren, 25 great-grandchildren; siblings Rita (Peter), Melinda (Clem), Cecil (Carrie) and her beloved dog Hunter plus a large circle of other family and friends.

Predeceased by parents Joseph and Bridget Lockyer, husband Peter; daughters Madeline and Colleen; brothers George, Peter James and sisters Phil and Mercedes.

Avelina was the heart of her family, always providing a loving home for everyone who visited or returned to St. Lawrence. She enjoyed the long time she worked with her friends at USM and BBHCC.  She loved working in her gardens and her many wood-working crafts which became popular among her family and friends. 

She loved to dance to popular tunes, doing her own fancy footwork to the music of her favourites, Bruce Springsteen and Neil Diamond.  

Avelina leaves behind many saddened hearts and treasured memories. 

In keeping with Avelina wishes cremation has taken place.

A Celebration of life service will be held at a later date.

In lieu of flowers donations in her memory may be made to the Alzheimer’s Society

The family would like to thank the staff at USM and Chancellor Park Long Term Care Facility for their care and kindness they bestowed upon our mom in the time she was in their care.
