Patricia Rhea (Linden) Alford was born on September 24, 1971 in Watonga, Oklahoma to Robert and Deborah Linden. She went to her heavenly home on the morning of September 2, 2021. Patricia was raised in Enid and baptized in the United Methodist Church. She was versatile in her career choices. She had various positions that served the health and household needs of many. She was always willing to go above and beyond to help everyone who were a part of her life. She was a loving mother to her two beautiful daughters, Hailey and Courtney, along with the support of their father Doug. She lived and raised them in Enid, Oklahoma. Trish loved spending time with her family, her daughters, and especially her grandson, Avander. She was equally a fiercely devoted friend to many. Her artistic nature drew her to painting, singing, and anything that had to do with creating works of art. She found beauty in simple things, like nature, and was drawn to trees and colorful flowers. She was very creative and enjoyed decorating her home. She was a thoughtful gift giver, it being her language of love. Trish was a loving, giving, and compassionate person, frequently sacrificing her own needs to be present with others during difficult times. She was loved and will be deeply missed. We know she will continue to be with us in the wonderful memories we hold dear and by the many things she left and touched throughout her life.
Patricia was survived by her father, Robert Linden, her sister Kelsey Hill and husband Greg (Broomfield, CO), her two daughters, Hailey Morgan Alford (Yukon) and Courtney Nicole Alford, her grandson, Avander (Hailey), her nephew Trevor Hill (Aurora, CO), and her niece Erin Hill (Atlanta, GA). Patricia is also survived by her uncle Burton (Freddy) Brandt, Jr. and wife Susan (Ponca City), Aunt Denice (Brandt) Uhlenhake, and husband Greg (Loyal), her cousins Brad Uhlenhake, David Brandt, Chris Brandt, Cassie (Brandt) Chavez, and Fred Brandt (Ponca City), as well as many others. She is also survived by her loving partner Richard Rich, who she enjoyed sharing the last several years of her life with.
In the past year, since her mother, Deborah Linden’s passing, she has been a wonderful support for her family, devoted to loving and caring for everyone. Tricia had a very colorful and high-spirted personality that gave everyone a sense of joy in her presence. We feel confident that she was joined and welcomed into heaven by her mother and family who have gone before her, and that she now lives at peace in the home that God prepared for her. As we say our final goodbyes, we will carry and cherish all of the wonderful memories we all have of her. We believe that this is not a goodbye but simply, “See you later.” May our dear sister in Christ rest in peace. Funeral services will be held at 4:00 pm on Thursday, September 9, 2021 in the Stittsworth Memory Chapel. Her sister, Reverend Kelsey Hill officiating. Arrangements are under the kind guidance of the Amy Stittsworth Funeral Service. Remembrances may be shared online at www.stittsworthfuneralservices.com
