Minnie Patterson

The story of Minnie and her incredible effort of save the men of the shipwrecked crew of the Colomo is one of my favourite stories.  I have told it many times of the over years: from her perspective and from the perspective of Tom, her husband.  This August I was able to tell it again at the Port Alberni Marine Centre.  The highlight of the afternoon was meeting Minnie’s granddaughter, Betty.
