Laura E Kidder

March 29, 1978 ~ December 9, 2018 (age 40)

Laura E. Kidder, 40, of Washington, passed away Sunday, December 9, 2018.

She was born in Washington on March 29, a daughter of Robert L. Kidder of Charlotte, NC and the late Linda Backner Kidder.

Miss Kidder, as she was known by all who knew and loved her, was a woman who always knew what she wanted as well as the means by which to get it.  Her meaning in life came directly through an endless quest for Pop, ice cream, cake. 

Surviving in addition to her father are a brother, Ryan C. Kidder (Jeff Mattes) of Washington D.C., a sister Heather L. Henry (Olivier) of Charlotte, NC; three nieces, Chloe, Sophie and Lucy Henry; an aunt, Susan Petritis (Bob) of Washington; an uncle, Jeff Kidder of Canonsburg; several cousins; and her wonderful Pathways family.

Deceased in addition to her mother are her grandmothers who she was particularly fond of, Liz Kidder and Helen Cooklis.

Friends will be received from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon, the time of service on Wednesday, December 12, 2018, in the McIlvaine-Speakman Funeral Home Ltd., Robert K. McIlvaine, 27 Cherry Ave., Houston, PA 15342.  Her aunt Rev. Susan Petritis will officiate.  Interment will follow in Oak Spring Cemetery, Canonsburg.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Laura’s name to Pathways, 655 Jefferson Avenue, Washington, PA 15301,
