Obituary

Russell Roy Mendenhall, 83, passed from this life on Monday, July 1, 2013, at Iowa Methodist Medical Center in Des Moines. In agreement with his wishes, cremation rites have been accorded and there will be no visitation or services held at this time. A private family committal service will take place at a later date at Glendale Cemetery, in Des Moines.

Russell was born on October 16, 1929, in Des Moines, Iowa, to Hoyt and Lila LaVonne (Dudley) Mendenhall. He was an army veteran serving from 1946 to 1948, when he was honorably discharged. In March of 1950, Russell was united in marriage to Patricia Anne Fisher, and to this union, one daughter was born. He was employed with Potthoff Foods for more than 40 years, retiring as a Distribution Manager. He loved spending time with his family and enjoyed golfing and NASCAR racing.

He is survived and lovingly remembered by his wife of 63 years, Patricia Mendenhall of Des Moines; daughter, Deborah Collins and her husband, David of Urbandale; granddaughter, Christy Collins; and grandson, Steven Collins and his wife Rachel.

The family has respectfully requested that any memorial contributions be made in Russell Mendenhall's name to Iowa Methodist Medical Center.
