Lyndene Oldham

Coffeyville has lost a kind and gentle soul. December 26, 2014 Lyndene J. Campbell Oldham escaped the confines of cancer and is now dancing with our savior. Her pain and suffering has ended.

Funeral services celebrating Lyndenes life will be held on Friday, January 2, 2015 at 2:00 pm at Coffeyville First Nazarene Church in Coffeyville under the direction of FordWulfBruns Chapel. The family will receive friends on Thursday, January 1, 2015 from 68pm at FordWulfBruns Chapel. Her favorite local charities that the family is requesting that donations be made to in her honor are the Coffeyville Kids Wrestling Club, The Holly House , Coffeyville Friends of Animals and of course the Coffeyville Youth of First Nazarene ChurchThe Journey Youth Ministries.

Lyndene loved the people of her community. She was a staple at Field Kindley High School events from theater and music performances to football, softball, baseball, basketball, volleyball games and wresting tournaments. She could be found at the score booth with scorebook in hand, doing her best to give her Golden Tornado an edge.

She coached youth soccer and helped her husband in baseball. Lyn served as President of the Coffeyville Kids Wrestling Club. She was strongly involved in Coffeyville Relay for Life and modeled for the Pretty in Pink benefits.

Following her husbands Navy career meant living in countries like Japan and Texas, then California where she served as Ombudsman for the U.S.S Chancellorsville CG62 during Desert Storm and follow up operations. This required her to assist the wifes of the crew while husbands were at war.

In 1995 she became a member of the family that is the City of Coffeyville. Farmland Industries Oil Refinery was her home then, working with Roger Casserole in safety and training. After that she found another home at Coffeyville Regional Medical Center she served as Emergency Room Admissions Clerk. She gave tirelessly to the hurting and desperate with a cheerful smile and prayed each day for those she met and shared laughter with the family that had her back to the very end.

She worshiped at Coffeyville First Nazarene and was a strong active member of the youth program, but could be found helping in whatever was going on, including missionary work and witness trips to a Navajo Indian School in Arizona another family.

Known for her bubbly personality and no fear grin, Lyndene is survived by her husband, Kelly Oldham father, Bennie J. Campbell and wife Lynne brother, Glen Campbell and wife Peggy son, David J. Oldham and wife Stephanie Kuehn Oldham daughter, Amanda L. Oldham grandchildren, Jorja L. Oldham, Mickey B. Oldham and James Martin Oldham. She was preceded in death by her mother, Linda Knowlton Campbell and grandfather, Ralph Knowlton.

She shook her fist at cancer and defied it for 13 years. When at the final days, she did so with courage, honor and dignity. I am proud to call her my Best Friend Fair Winds and Following Seas, Kelly.
