Craig Presnell Obituary, Death Cause – May Presnell passed away in the wee hours of the morning on Sunday, December 12, 2021, due to conditions and complications associated with cancer. In Caspian, Michigan, on July 1, 1939, Deanna Plourde, the third of four children, was born to her mother, Elsie (Latva), and her husband, Baptist Plourde. She spent her childhood in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan before moving to Idaho with her family when she was a senior in high school.
After completing her education, she went on to meet the man who would become the love of her life, Ralph Presnell. They tied the knot on October 31, 1959. They started their lives together in Spokane, where they had their first child, a son named Blake, in November of 1960. Two more children, Craig and Ralaine, were born to them in April of 1963 and May of 1965, respectively. They made the trip to Orofino in 1966, where she began her career at Konkolville Steakhouse as a waitress and remained there for several years until being promoted to the position of manager.
They relocated to Lewiston in 1999, and Mom began working at Life Care Center the following year. She remained there until 2012, when she received a diagnosis of metastatic breast cancer. She battled cancer for years, but she never let it defeat her; she was a warrior right up until the end. This is a monument to the kind of person she was. She was one of the sweetest and most kind people you’d ever have the pleasure of interacting with. A good buddy to everyone, and guaranteed to put a grin on your face. She cherished the time she could spend with her loved ones and friends. The presence of all of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren brought joy into her life on a daily basis. She had so much love for each one of them.
