Kevin Skipper officiating.  Interment will follow at Highland Park Cemetery, Sicily Island, LA, under the direction of Young’s Funeral Home.
Patricia Vangilder was born on Thursday, June 10, 1943, in Kennett, MO., and passed away Friday, May 20, 2022, at St. Francis Medical Center in Monroe, LA.  She was a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother and was immensely proud of her family.  Her unconditional love, support, and sacrifice for her children and grandchildren epitomized what a mom should be.  She loved working in her yard and took great pride in maintaining it, spending countless hours on her John Deere lawnmowers over the years.  This provided her ample opportunity to engage in one of her other favorite pastimes, talking and “visiting” with any one of her many cherished neighbors of her long-time home on Lake Concordia.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Arlie Vangilder; father, Everett Calvin; mother, Blanche McLain Calvin; brother, Jack Calvin and Jill Calvin and Donna McGovern.
