Until illness prevented she was an active member of the Cranston Church of God. She had a deep faith and love for her Church Family. She performed many functions during her faithful years of service, acting as children's song leader, led Bible study, Bible School, and taught Sunday School among many other services.

Mrs. Caudill was an avid gardener; it was one of her greatest joys. She was known for her beautiful flower beds along her property on Cranston Road. She took great pride in her vegetable garden and spent many hours canning foods for her family. She prepared meals for her large family and was known to make the best biscuits and gravy in the county!

She raised ten children teaching them the fundamentals of a moral life that would serve them well. She taught her children the value of work, the importance of a 'job well done' and to become responsible citizens.

Always available to her family, friends and community she provided strength, support and comfort in times of need.

She was a leader in her community, a caregiver to many, and counselor to her family, friends and neighbors.

Mrs. Caudill's sons, Henry Jr., Mike, Jeff, Mark, Steve and Nick will act as pallbearers.
