OBITUARY - CLEORA KATHLYNN FOLTZ COHRON

Our Lord and Savior called Cleora Kathlynn (FOLTZ) COHRON of Long Beach, California to her everlasting home on November 23, 2001. She passed away gently at 4:30 a.m. at her condominium in her daughter's arms.

She was born April 28, 1915, in Mount Ayr, Iowa, the daughter of David Lloyd FOLTZ and Mona (SCOTT) FOLTZ, who both preceded her in death. On December 26, 1936, in Creston, Iowa, Cleora married Frank White COHRON of Bowling Green, Kentucky, who preceded her in death in 1958.

She is assumed preceded in death by her oldest son, James D. "Jim" COHRON, a U.S. Army Special Forces Green Beret, who has been missing in action in VietNam since January 1968. The unknown fate of her oldest child was first and foremost on her mind and in her heart for 32 years 10 months 11 days.

She is also preceded in death by her beloved son-in-law of 32 years, Damon FUDGE; two sisters, Cloydene FOLTZ and Floretta JOHNSTON; one brother, David FOLTZ; and one nephew, William "Billie Lee" JOHNSTON.

She is survived by two children, Debra Kathlynn COHRON FUDGE of Columbia, Kentucky and Jon Patric COHRON of Long Beach, California; Jim's two children, Stephen COHRON and Kelly COHRON JONES in California; one sister, Kathryn MILLER in Iowa; her sister-in-law, Rachel FOLTZ in California; and these nephews and nieces: Cherri FOLTZ LOVE and husband David in Utah, Paul FOLTZ and wife Janet and Annette FOLTZ BURSTEIN and husband Mike in California, Donna BARKER JOHNSTON (Billie Lee's widow) in New Mexico, Andy JOHNSTON and wife Joyce in Texas, Dianne JOHNSTON HILL and husband Jack and Suzi JOHNSTON WEAVER and husband Tooter in Arizona, Mike MILLER in Wisconsin and Joe MILLER and Greg MILLER in Iowa. She is also survived by a host of other relatives and friends.

Cleora resided in Centerville, Iowa from 1940 to 1963, where her husband and she owned the F. W. COHRON Construction Company that was based in Centerville from 1940 until her husband's death in 1958. While residing in Centerville, she was a member of the Methodist Church, PTA, Mother's Club, Band Mothers and a Boy Scout leader and a Girl Scout leader.

She resided in Long Beach, California from 1969 until passing to her everlasting home. She retired from federal government Civil Service in 1977. Cleora was the president of the Anchor Arms Condominium Association for 32 years and a member of the First United Methodist Church of Long Beach.

During her retirement years, Cleora volunteered untold thousands of hours at the Long Beach Senior Center and was honored by that organization as the "Senior Volunteer of 1994." In addition, during each of her 24 years of retirement, she hand crafted 300 items and contributed them to the Long Beach Crippled Children's League for their annual fund-raising bazaar. Cremation arrangements were handled by McKenzie Cremation of Long Beach. Her ashes will be scattered some in Long Beach, California, some at her son-in-law's and daughter's rural property in Adair county, Columbia, Kentucky, where Cleora spent 20 years of annual vacations lasting from two weeks to six months, and some in Centerville, Iowa at Oakland Cemetery where her husband is buried and their grave monument is located.

A memorial service will be conducted when her ashes are scattered in Kentucky.
