Obituary for Elaine McGee Mendenhall

Elaine McGee Mendenhall, 64, passed away of ongoing health complications on Friday, March 8th, 2019 in Pocatello, Idaho. She was born on March 4th, 1955 to Elizabeth Florence Rich and Howard B McGee in Preston, Idaho.

Elaine was a wonderful mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. Elaine cared very much for her family and nothing made her happier then spending time with them. She would have done anything for those she loved. She was also like a mother to several children during her life time, some who nicknamed her "Missy" and they remember her fondly. She was a lot of fun to be around and was often sarcastic and silly.

Elaine worked for many years at Pepperidge Farms and also RR Donnelly in Logan, Utah. During her free time she loved to go camping and horseback riding. She had a passion for animals, especially dogs and horses. She loved music, mostly country, and also enjoyed reading a good book and watching her favorite soap operas.

Elaine savored the simple things in life, and had a sweet tooth. She would often make gas station runs for candy bars and chocolate cherries and has been known to polish off several boxes of Peeps. The most special characteristic Elaine possessed was her ability to love unconditionally. She was kind, with a heart of gold, and when she loved she did so with all of her heart.

Elaine is survived by her five children: Richard Michael Mendenhall, Christie Moosman, Kenny Mendenhall, Crystal Puckett, and Megan Zurita; 13 grandchildren, 1 great grandchild, and 8 siblings: Rodney Kartchner, Ilene Harden, Howard Rich McGee, Dale McGee, Betty McGee Flippo, Don McGee, Sandra Perry, and Susan Oliverson. She is preceded by her parents and her granddaughter, Miranda Moosman.

A lunch will be held Tuesday March 12th, 2019 at Golden Corral 850 Yellowstone Ave Pocatello, Idaho from 3:30-5:30 pm.

Following, a Viewing will be held Tuesday March 12th, 2019 at Downard Funeral Home 241 N Garfield Ave, Pocatello, Idaho from 6-8 pm.
