Patricia Jean (Kittner) Wood
TEHACHAPI, Calif. — Patricia Jean (Kittner) Wood. April 19, 1948 – Nov. 10, 2020
Born in Michigan; lived in Minnesota, Oreggon and California. Grew up on ice skates and on horseback. She kayaked Minnesota and skied June, Mammoth and Squaw, and tried snowboarding at the Granlibakken in Tahoe. Her junior high marching band performed at Lambeau Field during the Bart Starr days. (She was a lifelong Packer fan until she heard Aaron Rodgers was an Atheist; that was the end of that !) She camped on Mt Shasta and trout fished the high Sierras. Camped in British Columbia and got caught in a 3′ blizzard in Calgary on her honeymoon. Drove the Overseas Highway to go sailing in Key West and rode in a fighter jet on her 60th birthday.
She was a model and mentored the young ones she escorted to NYC for shows, and taught tap and ballet to all the Glennville kids. She had WAY too much fun at the 1984 US Festival (and there are pictures to prove it 🙂 But she didn’t just go to concerts; she Was a concert; she played guitar, bass, piano, flute and the Uke. She
achieved a Taekwondo Brown Belt and taught herself stained and fused glass and how to make elderberry blossom champagne. She also gave back to society and her community with nearly 40 years in the medical field including working with Dr Einstein at Memorial. Jean’s life was a full life well lived and now her life and health have been restored by the Lord!
She will be forever missed by her husband of 42 years, William, and she is survived by her sister Barb and niece Debbie in Wisconsin, her nephew John in Texas, and brother-in-law John in New Jersey. You may leave condolences at bashamfuneralcare.com. Please hug your loved ones and hold them close.
