Mom loved music; she sang and played the piano. She looked forward to going to the Temple and playing the organ. She was an amazing cook. She made beautiful quilts, she taught her children and grandchildren how to sew, quilt, knit, and crochet in fact if anyone needed to know how to do anything our mom was the go to person. She was our own personal google. There was always a full cookie jar on the counter, and chances are there was a Hallmark movie on the TV. Our mother loved everyone she met and everyone she met loved her. Mom made friends at the swimming pool where she participated in water aerobics for a very long time. She made eternal friends at the quilting circle she participated in for over 20 years with her ward family. The staff at the fabrics stores knew her by name and acted as if they had been best friends forever.
She loved to eat at Taco Time and Arctic Circle. She could often be heard saying should we go get a hamburger to her family and friends. She served selflessly in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in many positions and touched countless lives along the way. Pat was active in DUP. Because of Pat Kitchen, this world is a better place. We are grateful to have had her in our lives as an example of pure unconditional love.
Funeral services will be at the Bountiful 24th Ward building at 11 a.m., Friday, Sept. 21, 2018. There will be a viewing Friday morning beginning at 10 a.m. Friends and Family are also invited to a visitation at Lindquist Mortuary in Bountiful on Thursday, Sept. 20 from 6 to 8 p.m. Thank you to the staff at Avalon Care Center who treated our mother with kindness and love — and made sure that we were cared for as well.
