Mass of Christian Burial
Obituary of Patti Kleinke
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Patricia “Patti” Kleinke on Monday, November 15, 2021. Patti passed peacefully in her home and was surrounded by her loving family.
Patti was born on June 26, 1962, in Saint John, New Brunswick to the late Michael and Pauline (Doherty) Breen.
She was a registered nurse for over 25 years and loved by her peers and patients, many of whom became lifelong friends.
Patti was an adventurous spirit who would light up any room she entered with her beautiful smile and zest for life. When she was not travelling the world, she enjoyed sailing with her husband Robert, hitting the ski slopes with her family and friends, working on home improvement projects, and relaxing with her beloved canine companion, Mina. She especially enjoyed spending time with her granddaughter, Ava. Patti treasured her entire family and welcomed everyone into her life with love and open arms. She will be deeply missed.
In addition to her loving husband, Robert, Patti is survived by daughters, Rian Kleinke (John) and Hilary Kleinke of Saint John; cherished granddaughter, Ava; brothers, Michael Breen (Joyce) and Kevin Breen (Carole) of Saint John; sisters, Susan Steels (Gord) of Bradford, ON and Pam Pastirik (Dan) of Saint John; mother-in-law, Rosemarie Kleinke of Saint John; brother-in-law, Ralph Kleinke of Saint John; sisters-in-law, Heike Furness (Peter) and Michelle Lohnes (Jason) of Saint John; as well as nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and cousins. Besides her parents, she was predeceased by her father-in-law, Gunther Kleinke.
