Jessie Tinnoch Black Paterson


Jessie Tinnoch Black Paterson



With profound sadness we announce the sudden passing of Jessie Tinnoch Black Paterson (Gailey) on January 9,2021, at Cambridge Memorial Hospital. She was a loving devoted mum, gran, sister and aunt, and friend to all whose lives she touched.

She was born in Glasgow, Scotland on October 3, 1930 to the late Samuel and Gladys Gailey.

In 1972, she immigrated to Cambridge, Ontario with her late husband George Paterson, where they celebrated 32 years of marriage.

Jessie leaves behind her daughter Angela Taylor (Paterson), son in law Douglas, and two grandsons Micheal and Dawson who were the lights of her life.  She will be sadly missed by brother Charles Gailey and sister Elizabeth Lundie, and many nephews and nieces all in Scotland.

She has been welcomed home by her two brothers Samuel Gailey and William Gailey.

During her employment in the shoe department at The Right House in Cambridge, she made many great friends until her retirement in 1990.

She found so much joy in the simple things in life.  Going for fish and chips on Friday nights, attending the Cambridge Highland Games, where she enjoyed watching her grandson Micheal compete with the Paris/Port Dover Pipe Band.

Most of all she loved her family.  Her strength, support, and sense of humour will be greatly missed, but we know she will be watching over us.

Cremation has taken place with arrangements made by Corbett Funeral Home (95 Dundas St., Cambridge, ON).

A celebration of life will take place in Summer 2021.

Heartfelt thanks to the emergency department at Cambridge Memorial Hospital and Waterloo-Wellington LHIN for their kindness and compassion during this difficult time.

Gone from our sight, but never from our hearts.
