First married John Dulford Walrond (engaged in 1940;[3] married 21 April 1942 at Christ Church, Claremont,[2]), who died 1942. They had no children.

She left Perth in about June 1947, heading to England via Africa.[1] There she married Derrick Mowbay Robertson, and had three children.

Their engagement was reported in The Western Mail in Perth, December 1947:[1]

Engaged in Rhodesia

An engagement of local interest this week took place in Northern Rhodesia, the lass being Pat Walrond, well known and popular in Perth's nursing fraternity. Visiting friends and moving from place to place with plans for England drawing her northward, she came to Mufulira in Northern Rhodesia, and took a position as receptionist in the office of the copper mines.

There she met Derrick Robertson, of Johannesburg, and decided to abandon the English venture in favour of a home on the mines.
