Coreena M. Pedrick

Coreena M. Pedrick, age 49, of Johnstown, passed away on Sunday, April 27, 2014, at her parent’s home after a short, but warrior battle against cancer surrounded by her family.

She was born on December 22, 1964, in Amsterdam, a daughter of Ronald and Alexis Peterson Pedrick, who survive.

She was a graduate of Johnstown High School, Fulton-Montgomery Community College and also attended the College of St. Rose. She graduated from HFM BOCES, where she earned a degree in cosmetology and was in the top of her class.

Cori was employed at Gates Mills, the Greater Johnstown School District and as a babysitter and foster mother. She was last employed at Fantastic Sam’s. Cori attended the Grace Lutheran Church. Her six children and grandson were her world and her happiest moments were spent being around them. She loved to camp with her family and planning and celebrating holidays. Family was everything to her, but she gave her time and energy so generously to anyone who was in need. Cori had a special place in her heart for animals and it showed as she doted on her three dogs.

In addition to her parents, she is survived by her fiance, Bruce Andriola; her children, Timothy Snell Jr., Ross Snell and Jordan Snell; her daughters, Erica Snell, India Snell and Ariana Snell; one brother, Ronald Pedrick Jr.; two sisters, Stacy (Ken) Holliday and Raquel (Chris) Swatt; one grandson, Wyatt Albert Snell; her maternal grandmother, Patricia Peterson; her fiance; two daughters, Mykenzie Frasier and Kassede’ Andriola; aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins.

Funeral services will be conducted at 10:00 a.m. on Thursday, May 1, at the Barter & Donnan Funeral Home, 1 N. Melcher Street, Johnstown, with the Rev. David Almleaf officiating.

Visitation for family and friends will be on Wednesday, April 30, from 4 p.m. until 8 p.m. at the funeral home.

Interment will be in Evergreen Cemetery, Fonda.

Contributions in Cori’s memory may be made to the Barter & Donnan Funeral Home, 1 N. Melcher Street, Johnstown, NY 12095.
