Obituary for Ivetta Plank Caudill

Ivetta Plank Caudill, age 84, of Cranston Road, passed away Monday, September 11, 2017, at St. Claire Regional Medical Center in Morehead after a brief illness.

Born August 30, 1933, in Morehead, she was a daughter of the late Luther and Dorothy Helterbrand Plank. Besides her parents, she was preceded in death by one great granddaughter, Josey Starr Murphy, on April 6, 2010.

Ivetta is survived by her husband, Arvel “Junior” Caudill, whom she wed July 31,1954; three children, Betty “Jo” Murphy (David) and Vetta June Wells (Bob), and Zane Ray Caudill (Janet), all of Morehead; four grandsons, Shannon Murphy (Kerri), Kyle Gartin, Casey Caudill, and Bradley Murphy; and one great granddaughter, Princess Zoe Beth Murphy, all of Morehead.

Other survivors include two sisters, Vickie Rivers (Don) of Morehead and Maxine Nickell (Harold) of Mansfield, Ohio; one brother, Delmar Plank of Morehead; extended family; and friends.

Ivetta retired from the Rowan County School Board after 30 years of service as cook and lunchroom supervisor. She was also an employee of Cowden Mfg. in Morehead for 18 years.

Ivetta loved taking care of her Pride and Joy—her family—always seeing to their needs and most of all cooking for them was her #1 priority. She and Junior were privileged and proud to have lived in the same house during their 64 years of marriage and to have raised their children in the same home. Ivetta and Junior especially enjoyed gardening and sharing their bountiful produce with others. She will be remembered as a loving wife, mother, and grandmother who treasured all her family. Ivetta enjoyed and looked forward to watching WLJC each evening and listening to Christian music along with tending to her neighbors and friends when in need. She attended Johnson First Church of God.

Funeral services will be conducted 1 p.m. Friday, September 15, 2017, at Northcutt & Son Home for Funerals Memorial Chapel with Pastor Ben Furman officiating. Burial will follow in the Adams-Plank Cemetery.

Pallbearers: Mitch Roe, Carl “Sid” Caudill, Todd Plank, Keith Plank, Dale Plank, Charles Stacy, John Hamilton, and Jackie Plank.

Visitation is 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday, September 14, 2017, at Northcutt & Son Home for Funerals in Morehead.
