It's so sad to have lost such a wonderful soul. Pat just loved art class at CKV-TBHC and will be greatly missed.
That's where I met her as a vol. and am so thankful to have known her. It will just not be the same to walk down the hall on So Mt. neighborhood and not wave to her.
Know that she was loved.

I am so sad to see one of my BEST friends gone, but I know she is now at peace with our Lord. Better known as Kitzy to me, we worked together for Head Start of York County from 1977 till she retired. She will always be a part of my life's journey. Chub was related to me by marriage. We both had the same Aunt Amy Morningstar. May her family find comfort in knowing she a most beloved person to hundreds of children and their families. To this day, out of all the staff that worked at the Hanover Head Start center people always ask about Mrs. Kitzmiller. She wore her heart on her sleeve. I pray the Lord watches over you all as you morn the loss of your loved one.
