Miss Hoare taught me at Bennett Memorial in the 1960's. I was terrified of her until my last year, when she was kindness itself, & helped me so much. It wasn't until then that I noticed that wonderful twinkle in her eye. May she rest peacefully, knowing that I for one, really appreciated all she did.

She was an inspirational teacher who I greatly admired - she had a twinkle in her eye & taught great morals that I still adhere to today. RIP

I only knew Pat for a few years but her kindness and generosity, not to mention her fortitude in the face of considerable pain and suffering were an example to everybody. I miss her companionship greatly - as well as her wonderful sense of humour.
