Patricia L. Ostrosser

September 23, 1922 - April 10, 2012

Melbourne

Patricia Latimer Ostrosser has slipped the bonds of this world and gone to be with the Lord. While Pat was with us she was a wife, mother, friend and eager student of life. She loved to travel, shop, dine and have a good time. As a mother she set her children on their faith journeys and was an example of the value of hard work and determination. The mother of five children Lindsey, Lance, Blake, Gale and Jill we were constantly amazed at the woman who brought us into the world. Even though she never learned to drive she held responsible positions and managed a household without ever neglecting to provide dinner on the table at the end of long days.
Patricia moved to Ft Lauderdale from Timmins, Ontario, Canada in 1946 and lived a carefree lifestyle with her Lifeguard husband Peter Ostrosser. Pat and Pete lived the post war life in paradise where they had many friends and enjoyed the beach lifestyle. Starting a family Dad soon sought more stable employment and the family eventually moved to a larger home in Deerfield Beach where they resided until moving down the road to Pompano Beach in 1969. Soon the first grandchild arrived when Michael Dorr was born to daughter Lindsey soon Kristie followed and Mom was now a grandmother too. Daughter Gale bore Luke, Mathew and Justin Murray and son Lance sired Ashley Ostrosser. Mom’s maternal instincts ran deep and again she had babies to help raise and she moved to Las Vegas to help anyway she could. Pat and Pete’s marriage ended after 40 years of marriage but they remained loving friends for the rest of their lives. Soon she moved to Brevard county to be near her children Blake and Jill and lived happily in the penthouse at Trinity Towers where she was drafted into the condo board where she served with care and compassion. Always willing to pitch in Mom decided to have some ‘me’ time and busied herself traveling,reading voraciously and doing her beloved crossword puzzles at record speed. Family events and dining out was now her passion and she always seemed to enjoy every moment. We will miss those great moments with Mom and her Irish sayings like ‘If wishes were horses beggars would ride’ and ‘when I die just put me to the curb. If they don’t take me for the love of me they will for the smell.’ Mom never stopped loving life and we will never stop loving her. Wherever I travel I will take her with me. Patricia was predeceased by her eldest son Lance, husband Peter and sister Margaret. She is survived by the spouses of her children Sharon Denton (Blake), Lannis Mills (Lindsey), Eddie Whitmore (Gale), Carl Goss (Jill) and by great grandchildren Liam and Ryan P Dorr, Jocelyn Murray, Shiloh Murray and Landen Hayden son of Michelle Hayden beloved daughter of Eddie Whitmore. Also the wives of her grandchildren Stephanie (Mike), Shannon (Luke), Brittany (Justin) and Ashley’s husband Steven. In Mom’s memory there will be a family service and flyover from the ‘Melbourne Beach Air Force’ as she called the pelicans in formation flying down the beach. We will always love and remember you may God in His Mercy accept you into his kingdom. Your Family.
