Contributor: finnsh Created: 2 years ago Updated: 2 years ago
Sigrid was born in Byron, Big Horn, Wyoming on October 15, 1911 to Leo Jennings NeVille and Carrie Hatch NeVille.
She passed away March 23, 2005 in Centerville, UT. She graduated from Byron High School and attended Brigham Young University where she majored in Elementary Education. There she met Horace Rafael Crandall and they were married August 20, 1930 in the Salt Lake LDS Temple. For 13 years they lived in Provo, Utah where three of their children were born, Dean, Barbra and Rafael. Horace and she were both active in the Manavoo Ward and enjoyed continued association with BYU. In 1942 Horace's work was transferred to Salt Lake City. They bought a small home on Lowell Avenue. Sigrid set up a beauty shop in the basement where she worked for many years while raising their family. They were active in the Emigration Ward working in many ward and stake positions. In 1947 the family moved to Logan Avenue, setting up her shop again. In 1952 their last son Daniel was born. Sigrid served in many callings in MIA, Primary, Sunday School, and Relief Society in the Monument Park 8th Ward. She worked for many years in the Spanish extraction program. She also volunteered for service with the blind children through Primary Children's Hospital. She and Horace served seven treasured years in the Salt Lake Temple.
Her artistic talents included ceramics, oil and water color painting, quilting, and needlepoint. One of her greatest joys was working in the vegetable garden and her glorious flower gardens.
She is survived by two children, Barbra (Clement) Tebbs and Dan Crandall; eight grandchildren; and 16 great-grandchildren. Also, one brother Edwin NeVille and wife Jeri; brother-in-law and wife Hart and Bette Crandall; brother-in-law Ezra Tippets; and sister-in-law Sylvia NeVille. Proceeded in death by husband Horace R. Crandall and two sons and a daughter-in-law, Horace Dean Crandall (Geraldine), and Rafael NeVille Crandall. Also a brother Leo H. NeVille; three sisters, Jessie Lewis, Esther Tippets, and Eloise Jones; two brothers-in-law Ted Jones and Murray Lewis; and a great-grandson Ashton Tebbs.
