Vale Patricia Prendergast 13.01.1921 to 08.01.2023

Patricia was a Loreto past pupil, having attended Loreto in Adelaide for all of her schooling. Her daughters attended Loreto in Ballarat. She initiated the Loreto College to support Raphael which in recent years has moved to Klibur Domin.

Sadly, we said goodbye to our dear friend and loyal supporter on a hot summer’s day in Creswick in January this year, three days shy of her 102nd birthday this year. She would always say that she did not think she would reach 100, but she did.
