Johanne M. Crandall, wife of the late David C. Crandall Sr., of Moravia (formerly of McGraw) went home to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. She was 78, born on April 27, 1941 - the only daughter of the late Frederick and Thelma Ford Salisbury.
Johanne is survived by six children, David Crandall, Jr., Jeff (Christine) Crandall, Kathy (Merritt) Dayton, Eden (Paul) Avery, Steven (Theresa) Crandall, Matt (Lissette) Crandall, nineteen grandchildren and twenty three great grandchildren.
We knew her as Mom, Grandma and Great-Grandma. Others knew her as friend, fellow sister in Christ and neighbor.
Mom had an infectious laugh matched with a great sense of humor that each of us children honed as our own and is a shining reminder of her.
Mom was a faithful Christian who read the Word of God every day. It was her devotion and passion.
She would share with us how excited she was that her church made hearing technology available to her. She couldn't hear well and this ensured she could hear every word that Pastor Tim Mowers spoke. She loved her church and Church family just as she did her own family.
She was a loving mother, devoted to her family and the glue that kept us together. She will be sorely missed.
Calling hours will be held 10 AM – 12 PM Thursday at Wright-Beard Funeral Home, Inc. 9 Lincoln Ave., Cortland, NY with a funeral service to follow at 12 PM Thursday. Spring burial will be in Taylor Cemetery.
Memorial contributions in Johanne's name can be made to Calvary Baptist Church, 6753 State Route 281, Preble, NY 13141
