She married Clyde Watkins Kidman August 22, 1956 in the Salt Lake City Temple. She was a devoted mother and wife and a hard worker. She loved to quilt, crochet, bake and can all the fruit from Clyde’s fruit trees. She enjoyed being with her family, traveling in her trailer, books, watching sports, serving in many church callings and attending the temple. She was an avid reader and especially loved church history. She was very organized and meticulous. She also loved the roses in her yard.
