Obituary for Cora Mae Campbell-Pendell

Cora Mae  Campbell-Pendell
Cora Mae Campbell-Pendell passed away Friday, Feb. 9, 2018, at home, with her family by her side.

Cora was born Sept. 19, 1940, in Kingman, Ariz., to Ellis Albert and Rosa Lee Mullenax. She was the oldest of six children.

She married Willie Clifford Campbell on Sept. 22, 1956. Before moving to Lewiston in 1969, they lived in Arizona and then moved to Arkansas to work the family farm. They spent 51 wonderful years together. During those years they raised their three children, Robert Ellis, Clifford Alan and Corina Elaine. Cora truly enjoyed being a grandma and great-grandma. She also enjoyed the outdoors, hunting, fishing, reading, sewing, traveling and spending time with her family and friends.

Two years after the passing of her husband, Cora then met Pat Pendell. Both Cora's and Pat's families were extremely happy when they vowed their love for one another Dec. 17, 2009. Over the last eight years, they spent their time traveling and exploring new places, spending time with their family, and welcoming more grandchildren and great-grandchildren to the world.

Cora is survived by her husband, Pat Pendell; her son, Clifford (Deana) Campbell; her daughter, Corina (Chuck) Scott; stepsons Patrick (Nicole) Pendell, Michael Pendell and Chris (Melissa) Pendell; stepdaughter Darcy (Ken) Duncan; brothers Glen (Vicki) Mullenax and Harvey (Allechia) Mullenax; sisters Barbara (Ron) Schulz and Alice Ingram; grandchildren Rina Lombard, Amber Logsdon, Jennifer Miller, Jason Luft, Christine Rockness, Willie Campbell, Danielle Conklin, Nichole Harris, Jamie Borger, Dylan Scott, Austin Pendell, Cole Pendell, Nicky Pendell, Boston Pendell and Grant Duncan. She also is survived by 17 great-grandchildren, and several nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Willie Clifford Campbell; both of her parents, Ellis and Rosa Lee Mullenax; a son, Robert Ellis Campbell; and a brother, Ellis Mullenax.

Cora was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend. She truly was one of a kind and is going to be dearly missed.

The family would like to send a special thank you to Beatrice Njue (Mom's caregiver) for loving and caring for Mom so much. You will forever be part of our family.

We would also like to thank everyone for your loving thoughts, prayers and the wonderful care packages you provided during this difficult time.

Graveside service will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday at the Normal Hill Cemetery. Dinner will follow the service in the Ketch Pen at the Lewiston Roundup grounds, 2100 Tammany Creek Road, in Lewiston.
