Willadene Liddick

Liddick, Willadene

Of Elmira, NY

Was born December 21, 1920 in Lawrenceville, PA, the daughter of the late Willard and Violet (Fern) Roff, went home to be with the Lord on Thursday, October 11, 2012, at the age of 91. Mrs. Liddick's wishes were for no services to be held. She was preceded by her husband, Howard H. Liddick in April of 1964 and her daughter, Carol A. Liddick. Willadene is survived by children, Gary H. (Darlene) Liddick of Fox Island, WA, Brenda (Herb) Wild of Elmira, NY; her sisters, Barbara Nail of Horseheads, NY and Beverly (Dick) McColm; one brother, Willard aka Junior, (Shirley) Roff; and loving in-laws, Florence and Gerald Brown of Macungie, PA. Mrs. Liddick is also survived by eight grandchildren, seventeen great-grandchildren, and six great-great-grandchildren. Mrs. Liddick is remembered as a kind, sensitive woman with the even contrast of thick-skinned toughness. Even until her last breath, she fought for the ending she wanted, passing away at home still talking to her granddaughter, Brianne Liddick of Elmira, NY, her primary care-taker for many years. Because of this, Willadene had the special and unique opportunity of her great-granddaughter, Cameron Jennings' presence and special love for three years. Willadene is already deeply missed by all her friends and family and will be remembered for many years to come. Arrangements have been entrusted to the Olthof Funeral Home, Inc., 1050 Pennsylvania Ave., Elmira, NY.
