It is with deep sadness the family of Patty announces her passing at home, with her strong Christian faith into the arms of the Lord Jesus, at the age of 79 years. Patty was born in Amherstburg to the late Bill and Betty Renaud. Beloved wife of 42 years to Joe Zeppa. Loving mother to Wayne Clark (Maureen), Tracey Clark Ouellette (Don), dear stepmother to the late Julia Welke Mitchell (2004), late Lisa Fulghum (2016). Cherished grandmother to Billy Welke (Tiffany), Kerrie Meloche (Ryan Lafleur), Richard Meloche (Steph), Brandon Mitchell (Brooke). Proud great grandma to Juliana Welke, Adrianna Zayas, Carter Meloche, Lucas Lafleur, Lily Mitchell. Also expecting two more great grandchildren (a boy and a girl) due in June and July. Patty will forever be in the hearts of her siblings Bill Renaud (Diane), Larry Renaud (Nancy), Nancy Dufour (Dave), late Laura Gignac(2017) (John), late Jimmy Renaud (1991), Debbie Vermette (Greg), Cyndi McGraw, Michael Renaud (Martin), Kimberly Deschamps (Terry). Dear sister-in-law to Violet Mannino (late Phil 2005), late Virginia “Nina” Naas (2010). Patty is survived by many nieces and nephews as well as many life long-friends. 

As a teenager Patty worked summers on Boblo Island. Then moved on as a nursing assistant at Riverview Nursing Home, in Windsor. In 1972, Patty went to work at the Windsor Raceway as a waitress in the dining room. Patty retired as a captain in the dining room in 2002, after 30 years of service. 

Patty would like to thank her family doctor A.Rajan and Annie for 33 years of care. Also, Health First Pharmacy, Amherstburg, for their great service. Thank you to all the doctors and nurses at the Windsor Cancer Centre, as well as on the 7th floor at Metropolitan Hospital. They were really wonderful with their care during Patty’s stay in February and March of this year. Patty’s final home care by VON and PSW’s and Hospice kept her very comfortable until she went into the hands of the Lord Jesus, Our Savior. 

As per Patty’s wishes, cremation has taken place. A celebration of life for Patty will take place at a later date. Donations may be made to the Windsor Cancer Centre, Mission of Amherstburg or a charity of your choice. Online condolences and memories may be shared with the family at
