History/Biography
The Patterson family were early Burnaby pioneers. Dugald Campbell Patterson (1860-1931) and Frances Mabel Webb Patterson (1872-1960) were married in 1890 in Victoria, British Columbia. Dugald Patterson founded Vulcan Iron Works in New Westminister in 1903 (this business would eventually become the Dominion Bridge Company) and settled in the Central Park district. In 1910 they relocated to the Edmonds district and built a home (complete with tennis courts and a gazebo) on Edmonds Street near Kingsway. The Pattersons were community minded citizens that served Burnaby through their involvement with local municipal affairs and politics. In 1909 Dugald Patterson became the first postmaster of Edmonds. He also served as a School Trustee in 1912-13 and was one of the first residents to lobby council to preserve the local ravines as parks. The family name is remembered and honoured by the naming of Patterson Avenue and the Patterson SkyTrain Station located in the Metrotown area. The seven children in the family were named William H. (Bill), Jean, Frances Jr, Dugald C. Jr, Mary, C. Bruce and Alice.

Scope and Content
Frances Mabel (Webb) Patterson arrived in Burnaby in 1894. She and her husband Dugald Campbell Patterson Sr. built a pioneer homestead and farm on 5 acres at what would become the north east section of Central Park. By 1904, the family moved to the Edmonds district where in 1909 she operated the post office that her husband founded. In 1910, Frances and Dugald began construction of a new house on 14 acres which they purchased for $720. The house is now located at 7106 18th Avenue and is a dedicated heritage building. Frances Mabel assisted her husband with an insurance and real estate company that he founded in Burnaby and New Westminster. This experience would prove invaluable, as she would later become an insurance agent for the Wawanesa Insurance Company (founded in 1896). Frances never owned an automobile, so she met her insurance clients all over Burnaby, New Westminster and Vancouver by using the lower mainland’s street car system. The insurance profession continued to provide her with a steady income long after her husband’s death. Frances Mabel (Webb) Paterson, called “May” by her family and friends, was born in Cradley, England on December 5, 1872. She sailed from England to Victoria with her parents, Joseph William Webb and Frances Jane (Yapp) Webb on the SS Lake Winnipeg in 1889. One of the few possessions that she brought with her was an old wood rimmed bicycle which she found quite useful after her move to Burnaby. She would ride it all the way from Patterson’s Trail and Westminster Road (today’s Patterson Avenue and Kingsway) to the Woodward’s store in Vancouver where she would place her grocery order. She packed a pearl handled revolver with her in order to scare any bears she might see along her ride. In addition to becoming a respected insurance woman, Frances Mabel and her husband Dugald raised 7 children. They also helped build the Central Park Presbyterian Church, along with other pioneer families. Patterson Avenue and Patterson Skytrain Station are also named for the family. Frances Mabel died in New Westminster, BC on August 30, 1960.

Frances Mabel Lili (Patterson) Duke (pictured in her wedding gown) became the first PBX switchboard operator for the Municipality of Burnaby in the early 1920’s. PBX, or Private Branch Exchange, was the term used for an internal telephone system. Frances later became president of the Professional Women’s Association of New Westminster, and volunteered her time with the May Day celebrations in New Westminster. She was also a dedicated lodge member. Frances Mabel Lili Patterson was born on June 9, 1905 and was the fifth child born to Dugald Campbell Patterson Sr. and Frances Mabel (Webb) Patterson. Frances enjoyed her career as a telephone switchboard operator, and engaged in numerous fundraising efforts in and around Burnaby as a member of the Rebekah Lodge (the women’s division of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows). While in the lodge, she met her future husband, Walter Duke and they married on July 12, 1939. Frances moved to Wenatchee, Washington after her marriage, and relocated to Victoria after her husband died. Frances died on January 13, 1974. Doreen Nettie (Patterson) Reitsma (pictured as the flower girl) was the younger daughter of Charles Bruce Patterson and Elva Eleanore (Elliott) Patterson. Doreen at age 23 became the first woman from British Columbia to enlist in the new Women’s Royal Canadian Naval Service. Doreen Nettie Patterson was born on December 12, 1927. In the fall of 1951, she had become a Wren in the Royal Canadian Navy. She received her basic training at HMCS Cornwallis and became a radio intelligence operator for the wireless communications base at Naval Radio Station Coverdale near Moncton, New Brunswick. In 1953, she was chosen to serve a term at the naval base in Churchill, Manitoba. She was one of only eleven women to ever serve there. After her career in the navy, Doreen worked in the accounting division for Simpsons-Sears in Burnaby, (known today as Sears at Metrotown Centre) near her grandparent’s original family home at Patterson Avenue and Kingsway. Doreen married Gerard Reitsma on August 18, 1960. Doreen died on April 30, 2000.
