It is with great sadness that we mourn the passing of Patti Fleury (Philip), an alumna of the Physical and Occupational Therapy program at the University of Toronto.
After receiving her diploma in Physical and Occupational Therapy in 1958, Patti remained involved with the university and was among the first ever group of alumni to join U of T’s Governing Council in 1972. She served as an alumni governor from 1972 to 1978, serving on the Academic Board from 1973 to 1976 and on the Planning and Budget Committee from 1975 to 1978.
Patti was committed to advancing the interests of U of T’s students and alumni and was an active member of the U of T Alumni Association from 1968 to 1979.
Patti advocated for the Physical and Occupational Therapy program to become a degree program and in 1982, she graduated from U of T with a Bachelor of Science in Occupational Therapy.
“Patti displayed unwavering passion for her career, and she will be remembered for her impact on the rehab sciences programs at U of T, paving the way for students today and tomorrow,” says Mary Forhan, Chair of the Department of Occupational Science & Occupational Therapy.
The departments of Occupational Science & Occupational Therapy and Physical Therapy extend their condolences to Patti’s friends and family, as well as her former classmates and colleagues.
