Neva Anne Abrahamson, (nee Kronbeck), 87
Hans and Marie (Hahn) Kronbeck raised and often disciplined, their sometimes mischievous but always imaginative brood. Over the years we have said goodbye to many of the farmland troupe: father and mother, followed all too soon by Alan, Inez, Russell, Lola and most recently Wayne. On Monday, July 16, at 2:40 in the afternoon Neva’s brow grew cold and her hands limp. She left this place to join those that preceded her.
She leaves behind a heartbroken daughter and son-in-law, Randi (Abrahamson) and Allan Norstrom, whose daily lives will be forever altered by her absence; her granddaughter, Brianna, who benefited immensely from being Neva’s only grandchild and will live the rest of her life with only half a heart; a son, Gene; her brother, Ivar (Kathy) Kronbeck of Little Falls; sisters, Addie Kretzman of Brainerd, Joyce Kronbeck of Little Falls, Vera (James) Doroff of Cushing and Gloria Dungan of Anchorage, Alaska; sister-in-law, Dianne Kronbeck of Little Falls; dearest family friend, Terrance Lappin; and last, but not least, her grandpets: Harley, Zeus, Zoe, Gucci, Monroe, Egg and Sprout (aka Monkey), who appreciated her mislaid crumbs and warm lap.
“Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you.” Isaiah 43:1-2.
