Born in 1945 to Amelia and Robert Morris Tidwell in Shreveport, LA, Patti is survived by her devoted and loving husband David Kruithof who will forever miss his "pretty girl". In addition, she is survived by her children, Thomas Stanley Barr Jr. (Valeska), Robert Scott Barr (Mandy), Brian Stephen Barr (Rita); stepchildren, Chris Kruithof, Bryan Kruithof, and Donna Kruithof Hancock (Terry); grandchildren, Marc Allen Barr, Isaac Russell Barr, Ashley Nicole Bar, Emerson Maxwell Barr, Hadley Marie Barr, and Blake Kruithof; great grandchildren, Andrea Nicole Barr and Isaiah DeJarret Barr, two sisters, Marie Foley and Anna (Sis) Jackson. Numerous cousins and extended family. She is preceded in death by her mother and father, Amelia and Robert Morris Tidwell and Faye and Johnny Spataro. Patti was a devoted wife and avid gardener, nature lover, and squirrel feeder. She was generous and giving as evidenced by her many and cherished friends. Patti's smile lit up a room. She was hugger with an infectious laugh and her passion for music and poetry inspired many. Her faith was nourished as a member attending the First Christian church of Titusville, FL. Patti retired from the Bravard County Property Appraisers as a Title Specialist. Heartfelt gratitude is extended to the ICU doctors and nurses at Parrish Medical Center who worked tirelessly to prolong Patti's life. In honor of Patti, as a breast cancer survivor, the family requests that donations are made in her memory to the American Cancer Society. Condolences may be shared at
