Petricia Ann Hart Kidwell, daughter of the late William and Bertha Hart was born on August 4, 1936 in Port Jefferson, NY. She passed away peacefully on April 8, 2018.

Petricia, was known to her family and friends as Tee, Pat, Pet and even Mom. She attended the Setauket Schools and as a young girl she belonged to the local social group "The Jolly-Link-Y-Teens". Pet enjoyed bowling and at the age of 75 she took up golf. Although she liked the golf course, it made her rather nervous, but she still always continued to swing her club! She was employed as a Mental Health Aide for NYS at Edgewood and Pilgrim Psychiatric Centers and Long Island Developmental Center. She like listening to audiobooks, doing crytoquotes, Sukoko, lottery scratch-off tickets, along with a good or bad trip to the casino (smile). Most of all Petricia loved to travel, whether for big or small adventures, she was always packed to go.

Petricia was preceded by her husband of 56 years, Walter, fondly known as "Kenny". She will always be remembered and cherished by their children; Trudie Hart and her late husband Everett "Coach" of Leesburg, Florida, Donald Kidwell and his wife Joanna Grande of Babylon, New York and Judith Kidwell and her companion Michael Messina of Tucson, Arizona.

There are a host of family and friends who also loved her dearly. Over the last seven years, Douglas Wells has not only been her confidant and her significant companion but a wonderful and supportive friend.

All through Petricia's medical issues, she maintained a positive and upbeat attitude. Whatever name you knew our Mom by, whether it was Tee, Pet, Pat or Petricia, she has now gone on to become our "Good Angel".

Reposing at O.B. Davis Funeral Homes, 4839 Nesconset Highway, Port Jefferson Station, LI. Visitation will be held on Friday, April 13th from 2-4 and 7-9 PM. Prayer service Saturday at 10 AM with interment to follow at Washington Memorial Park.

We met Pet Kidwell through her daughter, Trudie Hart. We had a chance to play golf with her in Florida once and had a great time! She was always so positive and we understand where Trudie gets her sunny personality from. We pray for the family! We love you, Trudie and hope to see you this year in Florida.

Aunt Pet is my favorite Auntie. In her kitchen is where we spent time together. I remember watching her cook and tasting the food before anyone else. I loved getting in the car and driving to her job where she let me eat candy!
I love you Auntie..Gd Bless. RIP
