Obituary for Patricia Ready Olden

Patricia Ready Olden, 76, passed away on December 30, 2018, surrounded by family and friends. Her greatest joys were her grandchildren, Joseph and Ethan Scibek, Nora Mennitt, and Alan Hestres. Pat is survived by her son, Brian; and her daughters, Megan and Kate, as well as their spouses, Serena Olden, Kevin Mennitt, and Luis Hestres. She is also survived by her brother Michael Ready, his wife Charlotte, their daughter Beth, and Beth’s husband John Bedenbaugh.

Pat was born in Mississippi and grew up in Illinois, Missouri, and Ohio, before her parents settled in Texas in 1955. They lived in Dallas, where Pat attended Ursuline Academy for seven years. Pat moved to Houston to attend Rice University and rarely resided outside the Houston area since graduating. She was married for 26 years to John Olden. She was a gifted early childhood educator for nearly three decades before retiring in 2011. She was always intellectually curious, linguistically gifted, wry and humorous, gracious and kind.

Pat’s true gift to the world was her ability to spread the kind of love and acceptance that helped build communities of compassion and strength. In her final illness and passing, Pat and her family were blessed to be surrounded by her posse of longtime friends. A Memorial Service will be held February 23, 2019 at 1:00 p.m. in the Miller Funeral Chapel, 7723 Beechnut, Houston, TX 77074. Interment will follow at 4:00 p.m. at Memorial Oaks Cemetery. Because of her love for helping others succeed in both education and life, Pat’s family suggests that memorial donations can be made to Raise Up Families or the House of Ruth.
