Dorthey Renea Caudill, 51, left us to be with her Lord on March 4, 2014, at Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte after a brief illness. Funeral services will be private.
Born on June 27, 1962, in Denver, Colo., Renea was the daughter of Lorene Caudill of Yawkey, W. Va. and the late Thurman Caudill. She was a graduate of the schools of West Virginia and Marshall University. Renea was employed at Piedmont Medical Center as a coding compliance analyst and a member of MCC Church in Charlotte. She was an enthusiastic animal rights supporter and volunteered in animal shelters while living in Myrtle Beach. She had a love of life and often said that she tried to leave a smile or laugh with everyone she met.
Renea was greatly loved by many friends and family. In addition to her mother, she is survived by her companion and friend, Pamela W. Robinson; four brothers, David Smith of Denver, Colo., Brad Vineyard of Chicago, Joe Vineyard of Colorado and John Vineyard of Oklahoma; and two sisters, Kathy Wakefield of Huntington, W. Va. and Anita Miller of Alkol, W. Va.
