Patricia “Pati” Luise Cutler (nee Heard)
March 16, 1964 – Feb. 19, 2015

Pati wants us to remember her with a smile on our face and joy in our hearts. Pati fought her cancer with incredible dignity, grace, and ferocity.
She will be desperately missed by her husband, Mike Cutler; her children, Richard, Heather, Jarett, and Hallie; siblings Dave, Peg, Mick (Ian), and Lynn; nieces Jessica (Erik), Kathryn (Colin), Becky, Ingrid, Rachel, Emily, and Erin; nephews Jason, Chris, Nick, Elliott, Theo, Adam, Brett, and Taylor; in-laws Pat and Bill Cutler; sisters-in-law Carolyn and Cindy; brothers-in-law Randy and Bob; and her large number of close friends. Pati was predeceased by her parents, Bill and Ethel.
The Cutler family loved nothing better than getting together with family – either at Peg and Jason’s cottage on Georgian Bay or at numerous holiday get-togethers. Her love of cooking and entertaining was sampled by numerous friends and family. There was never a dull time as Pati could light up a room with her smile and warmth. She was a founder of HireSmartHR, along with her business partner and close friend, Nicole Soucy. Together, the business of providing recruiting and HR services flourished.
When you think of Pati, light a candle and remember her fabulous sense of humour, generous nature, and enormous bravery.
