In lieu of flowers, the family asks for your tax-deductible donation funds for life saving research, treatment, and care of Alzheimer’s in memory of their mother. It would mean so much to someone having to live with this deadly disease. The family will have a table set up during the visitation and service. They also have an account set up at any Centennial Bank under Sondra Crabtree.
The family would like to thank everyone so much for the outpouring of love, compassion, food, drinks, and support everyone has shown to their family during this very difficult time. They are very thankful for the generous donations to the Alzheimer’s Association in their mother’s name. As some of you may know, Sondra suffered from Alzheimer’s for years before her passing and your donations were the perfect gift in her memory.
