1923 ~ 2010
Christie Kropf, 86, of Provo, died July 21, 2010 at her home. She was born November 21, 1923 in Mt. Pleasant, Utah to Peter and Esther Nielsen.

She and Joe owned and operated Kropf's Market in Payson for many years. They also managed the Lamplighter Estates in Provo. She and her family enjoyed many hunting, fishing and camping trips. Her greatest joys in life were her family, friends and her beautiful roses. She took great joy in keeping a beautiful yard. She also enjoyed doing needlework until her eyesight failed.
