ADD A MEMORY
Brad Kidder Sr.

July 1, 2020

Pat is an important woman in our lives; we met when our children were of hugging age and maintained a warm relationship from that time on. It's been a blessing to keep up with some of the children as life has gone on. Pat's gone from this earth but she is a dear and important friend, ever waiting down memory lane. Peace for you children and for that third generation that will continue to reflect her quick wit and searching mind through the years unfolding.
Press on,
Brad and Brooxine Kidder

You will be missed by many. May you rest in peace.
Pat always had the best attitude about life and living it to it's fullest. She was so caring and compassionate to everyone she met. I had the pleasure of sharing holidays and vacations with her and her daughter my dear friend Julie Wanslow, and also Julie's sisters. They loved to come to Santa Fe NM and go to the Opera, shop and eat wonderful local cuisine. I will forever remember those good times we have had in Arkansas and in Santa Fe. You were greatly loved!
