Alice Patricia Dorothy Benedetti
July 21, 1926 - July 15, 2021
Just shy of her 95th birthday, Alice Patricia ‘Pat’ Dorothy Benedetti, passed away at University Hospital, on Thursday, July 15, 2021.
A graduate of U of T, Pat was proud to have risen to become the head of occupational therapy at the now-defunct, London Psychiatric Hospital.
A smart woman who enjoyed crossword puzzles and ‘Jeopardy’, Pat also enjoyed singing in her church choir.
She joins those who were precious to her; husband Emile “Benny” Benedetti, cousin Arlene Firth and her husband, Gordon Firth of Falls Church, Virginia.
Pat is survived by her youngest son, Andrew Benedetti, who served as her primary caregiver in her later years. She is also survived by son Tim Benedetti; daughter Patty Wilson; their respective spouses, Judy and Doug; grandchildren Greg and Steven Benedetti, Robyn and Holly Wilson, and their families as well.
Those wishing to make a donation in memory of Pat are asked to consider direct funding to a private or university research lab that is actively searching for a cure for Alzheimer’s Disease.

Tim& Judy and family: So sorry to read of the passing of your mom. She lived a beautiful life helping others and is well blessed. Remember the beautiful times you all had and live by example. Regards Linda & Bill Rabb ( neighbor)
My sincere condolences to Patty Benedetti-Wilson and her entire family on the passing of Mrs. Benedetti. I first met Mrs. Benedetti as a first year teacher at Northridge PS in London. She was a very candid, forthright parent and provided me with sound advice which, fortunately, I took to heart. As I consider my career in education, I remember well those who helped me to be, I hope, a better teacher. Mrs. Benedetti was one of those individuals and I remember her fondly. Mrs. Benedetti cared very deeply for her family will be missed greatly. My thoughts and prayers are with you, Patty, and your extended family at this sad time. Ross Spettigue, Windsor, ON
