Patrick Ernest Cossette, 94, of Moose Jaw, SK passed away peacefully on Thursday, July 28, 2022 with his family by his side. Patrick was born January 9, 1928 on a farm near Trewdale, SK to Emile and Lucia Cossette. He grew up with his 15 siblings on his parents’ farm in this area, attending Trewdale School for his education.
As a young man, Patrick worked on the farm and did many odd jobs in the community. He married Lottie Moore of the Courval area in October 1948. Early in their marriage, Pat and Lottie lived and worked in Burdett, Alberta, where Pat worked at the local John Deere dealership. In 1952, Pat and Lottie returned to Saskatchewan and purchased farmland in the Coderre area. In 1961, they opened and operated a grocery store in Coderre called Pat’s Lucky Dollar for 3 years. As their family grew, Pat and Lottie farmed in the Coderre area until they retired from the farm in 1975, moving to Moose Jaw. Patrick worked in the dry goods department at Moose Jaw Co-op for several years after moving to Moose Jaw.
Patrick was very industrious and a jack-of-all-trades. He built several houses for his family over the years. He was quite musical, loved to sing, dance, and was even self-taught to play guitar, violin, and piano. He was proud of all his work and was especially proud of winning the District 8 Family Farm Award which he and his family won in 1971.
During their 66 years of marriage, Pat and Lottie raised 6 children, had 17 grandchildren and 23 great-grandchildren.
Patrick was predeceased by his wife, Lottie; parents, Lucia and Emile; brothers and sisters: Blanche, Wilfred, Armand, Hélène, Lorette, Roland, Victor and Marie-Anne; and great-grandson, Austin. Patrick is survived by his children: Adrian (Yvette) Cossette, Eugene (Beverly) Cossette, Barbara (Dallas) Glascock, Kathleen (Brian) Stroh, Annette (Victor) Jensen and Christine (Leslie) Cossette; 17 grandchildren and 22 great-grandchildren; and siblings: Eudore (Ted), Maurice, Clarence (Butch), Claire, Marie, Delores and Noella.
