Nell "Aunt Snookie" Cradick Obituary
CRADICK, NELL "AUNT SNOOKIE," 86, went home to be with God Tuesday April 15, 2014.

Aunt Snookie was member of St. Frances of Rome Catholic. She always enjoyed helping out at the parish. A lifelong resident of the Clifton neighborhood she was retired from the American Printing House for the Blind. She was known and loved by many.

She had the memory of an elephant and never forgot a birthday. She was an avid TARC bus rider and walked many a mile up and down Frankfort Avenue visiting residents and store owners. But, most of all, she loved to have a cold beer with family and friends.

She is preceded in death by her parents, Nell and Martin Cradick; her siblings, Boots Cradick, Lillian Kappesser and Helen Fuqua, nephews, Charles Kappesser, Frank J. Phillips; great-nieces, Heather Diguardi and Lauren Biven; a great-great nephew, Aiden Linger, her companion of many years, Bill Fallon and her kitty cat Tinker.

She is survived by five nieces, Babs Holtzman (Reuben), Gail Pohlman (Ray), Judy McDaniel, Jill Schloemer (John) and Mindy Biven (Larry) with 11 great- and 17 great-great-nieces and nephews.

She will be missed.

Her funeral Mass will be Wednesday at 1 p.m. at St. Frances of Rome Catholic Church, 2119 Payne St. with burial in St. Michael Cemetery. Visitation will be 2-8 p.m. Tuesday at Ratterman Funeral Home, 3711 Lexington Road in St. Matthews.

Memorial gifts may be made to Mass of The Air or The Kentucky Humane Society.
