I had alot of respect for Myrtle and Pappy. As a young fire cadet, they took me under their wings and taught me alot about the fire service and Winters in general. They were both great people and will be missed. My sympathies to the Grays and the Kidders.

Please accept our sincerest sympathy for the loss of Mrs. Kidder. She will be remembered for many things because of her devotion to the Winters community. She is one of numerous pillars of Winters who made a very positive impact on others. We will remember her mostly for the countless hours she devoted to the 4-H Club and especially her teaching skills in our sewing classes. She had high expectations and managed to mold us into pretty good seamstresses. We think of her every time we sit at our sewing machine. It is people like Mrs. Kidder that made Winters a wonderful place to grow up in. With deepest sympathy, Ann, Marla and Janis Buckmaster

My sincere sympathy in the death of your Mother, I thought she was a grand old lady. She was retired when I met her back in the early 1980's and she was always busy which I thought was great; she was a good example a Christian woman addressing the needs of her church. I am sorry I will be unable to attending her furneral as we are traveling and won't be back in the area until September. Again my sincere condolence
