Happy 100th birthday, Pat!

Catherine Patricia O’Doherty (Pat) was born in Quebec City on March 9, 1919. Her Irish ancestors came here many generations ago in the mid-1800s. Her father Joe O’Doherty (1880-1970) was a steamfitter who worked on the Quebec Bridge. Her mother, Malvina Julien, was from Sillery. One of Pat’s first jobs was at Parisian Corset, a bustling industry located on Rue Dorchester.
