Bess KendallYouth Arts New York gives a special thank you to our long-time supporter Patricia Bess Kendall, October 4, 1945-August 4, 2009. Her career spanned over 35 years as a medical social worker, ESL instructor, and residential group leader. Bess travelled extensively, often living and working in Mexico, Peru, the Himalayas, Europe, China and Indonesia. She died at home in her cohousing community after a 3 1/2 year journey with pancreatic cancer, lovingly cared for by neighbors and friends who survive her. Bess’s tenacity, love of life and robust sense of humor will never be forgotten.
