Patsy Ann Kidd, 84, left us after a 10-year battle with vascular dementia to be with her Lord and family in heaven on May 13, 2020.

Patsy was born in Akron, Ohio to William and Viola Potter. She grew up in her family home at 892 Bertha Avenue and graduated from Garfield High School in 1954.  Patsy lived in Springfield Township from 1965 to 1980, when she moved to Anchorage, Alaska. She retired from the State of Alaska Disability Determination Unit after 18 years of dedicated service in 1997. Her remaining years were spent in Washington state.

Patsy was an avid reader and enjoyed bowling, fishing, watching figure skating, and rainbows. She loved bingo, slot machines, and playing all types of card games. She treasured time with her family and was always there to support her kids and grandkids by attending their activities and sporting events. Patsy had a huge heart and loved unconditionally; she will be missed greatly.

Patsy was preceded in death by her mother and father, as well as brothers William and James Potter.  She is survived by three children, her son Warren Kidd, Jr. (Leslie), daughters, Pamela Kidd Piper and Kristy Kidd Russell (Jason), nine grandchildren and three great grandchildren.

Memorials may be made in Patsy’s name to the Dementia Society of America.

Patsy was a wonderful woman and I have many fond memories of her from when I lived in Bellingham. She was lucky to have a family who loved her so much. May she rest in peace. Praying for all of you. Love you, Kristy and Pam!

Patsy always had a smile when I saw her. She was full of spark and laughter when watching her family and friends. She was loved by everyone and will be greatly missed. I know she will be watching over her loved ones and at peace.

My memories of Patsy are from childhood.Kristy was my best friend in early elementary school, thus I spent a lot of time at her place. I remember Patsy as really loving bingo, lol. But mostly I remember Patsy as kind and engaging. I also remember her mother, Viola. I really enjoyed spending time with these women as a child. God bless you, Patsy.
