Cora Joyce Bedell
RANDOLPH — Cora Joyce Bedell, four month old daughter of Kyle Glen and Amy Renay (Maedl) Bedell of School Street, Randolph, passed away, Wednesday (Oct. 14, 2020) at the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh.
Cora was born on Friday, June 12, 2020, in Rochester, NY, There are some things that words can never properly say, things that never make any sense. Cora fought sooo very hard since the minute she was born. She fought through the NICU in Rochester, the CICU for recovery after her two liver surgeries, and then all the way to Pittsburgh, where she fought through major heart surgery. There are soooo many things that a baby should not have to endure in her short four months that she seemingly handled with the grit, determination and with a stern eye, and especially every time a doctor or nurse would come in her room. Cora spoke with her eyes, as she could not cry. Those big beautiful eyes that could stare into a person’s soul. Cora was loved deeply by her family, friends and her God parents (Craig and Amy Bedell).
In addition to her parents, Kyle and Amy, she is survived by a brother, Johnathan Ray Bedell; sister, Adalyn Jeanie Bedell; maternal grandparents; Raymond T. Maedl; paternal grandparents, John C. and Joyce M. (Hulton) Bedell; maternal great grandparents, Raymond and Lori (Prenatt) Maedl Sr. and Richard Faulkner; and paternal great-grandfather, Calvin C. Bedell; as well as many aunts, uncles and cousins.
Cora was preceded in death by her maternal grandmother, Jeanie L. (Faulkner) Maedl; great-grandmother, Jean (Brundage) Faulkner; paternal grandparents, Norma J. (McCormick) Bedell and Glen and Virginia (Grover) Hulton; as well as a cousin, Harrison Rhett Botta
