Our beloved mother and grandmother, Patricia “Patt” Spiers Cude returned to her Father in Heaven on August 23, 2021, after a long-term illness. She was greeted at the gates of heaven with loving arms and having a joyous reunion with her parents (George Albert Spiers & Ethel Jane Spiers), husband (Richard “Dick” Cude), sister (Gloria Dode Schwitzer) and brother (Larry W. Spiers) that she dearly missed and loved so deeply.
Patt was born on March 11, 1937, to her parents George and Ethel Spiers as the youngest child of three. Although there were many years between her brother, Larry, and sister, Dode, she loved them with all her heart, and they remained close throughout all their years.
She attended Ogden High and graduated from Weber High in 1955. On August 4,1956, Patt married her high school sweetheart Richard “Dick” Cude and had a beautiful wedding at the Bertha Eccles Hall in Ogden. Her husband left this earthly world too soon in 1979 and Patt missed him greatly for the remainder of her life. During their marriage they were blessed with two daughters, Julie Whittier and Lynda Allen.
She did find true love on earth again through her grandchildren. They were her pride and joy. Her face beamed with love and pride whenever she spoke of her grandchildren. The grandchildren knew they would always leave her home with a little treat or goodie from grandma.
Patt worked for the IRS for many years before moving to Kona, Hawaii. While in Kona, Patt enjoyed managing Sunset Traders that was walking distance to the beach. She lived in Hawaii for over twenty years. She embraced Hawaii and truly loved living near the ocean and all the dear friends she made on the island. She moved back to Utah, but part of her heart always remained in the beauty of Hawaii.
Patt was a truly classy lady and dressed eloquently for every occasion. Patt was passionate, strong-willed and independent and this was true to her last breath. She was known for her love of pink and shopping for good deals. She loved going to get a cold drink, a bite to eat or a treat with the people she loved, but she truly enjoyed it for the good conversation.
She enjoyed baking cakes and made the best homemade candy. She loved delivering her beautifully packaged goodies to her friends during the holidays. She made Christmas special by making sure everyone had a delicious meal and that everyone in the family had a filled stocking no matter their age.
Patt leaves her cherished family; two daughters Julie Whittier and Lynda Allen, six grandchildren Alicia Garn (Zach Garn), Amanda Allen, Camille Cardon (Casey Cardon), Jeremy Whittier (Amber Whittier), Richard Allen and Joshua Whittier, and seven great grandchildren, Lyric & Cade Nelson, Calup & Courtney Cardon, Jakob & Reagan Garn and Kash Whittier.
