Alyce-May CRONDAHL

CRONDAHL, ALYCE-MAY (ALLIE)

Was welcomed July 10 into the arms of God and reunited with her husband Victor Ture Crondahl, infant son Michael, mother Mary and father Charles Taylor and son-in-law Steve Farrer.

Born March 15, 1927 in Naches, Wash., Allie grew up next to the family orchard with sister Peg and brother Chuck. In her early 20s, she met the love of her life, Vic Crondahl, in Yakima, Wash. They were married in 1952 and moved immediately to Canada, where they raised a family of eight children in Coquitlam.

Allie’s children and 21 grandchildren include: Cecilia Crondahl (Taylor, Bryce, Kate) and their father, Bill Cooper; Cherie Crondahl; Kathy Nickel (Alicia, Kailey) and husband Stan; Ken Crondahl (Jordan, Terry, Michael) and wife Wendy; Theresa Farrer-Beamish (Coco, Emry, Peggy) and husband Mike (Greg, Hayley, Michaela and Joey) and Emry’s spouse, Jay Gilchrist; Peggy Poole (Brandon, Nicholas, Lucas) and husband, Bob; Mike Crondahl (Mary, Thomas) and wife Jeanette; Janice Crondahl-Jandrisch (Ruby) and husband Vince.

We are thankful for the compassion shown by Drs. Marazzi, Schopf, Evani and Swartz, Father Nicolas Tumbelaka and the caring nursing staff of 2 East at MSA hospital in Abbotsford.

A prayer vigil will be held at Saint Ann’s Catholic Church, 33333 Mayfair Avenue, Abbotsford, on Wednesday, July 16 at 7 p.m. A Mass of Christian Burial is scheduled on Thursday, July 17 at 11 a.m. at Saint Ann’s with celebrant Father Craig Scott. Reception to follow. Internment is scheduled for a later date.
