Elfrieda Crouch

June 18, 1922 ~ July 10, 2017 (age 95)
Elfrieda R. (Wendt) Crouch went to Heaven the evening of July 10th and was greeted by her husband Rex, son Bill, ten siblings, parents and many others who have known and loved her over the years. She joyfully engaged in life from start to finish, with friends and family as her focus. Her life wasn’t without its challenges, but through it all, she persevered with humor, grace and her strong Lutheran faith. She lost her mother at age three, lived thru the Great Depression and the Kansas Dust Bowl, and raised two sons, losing one of them way before his time. She loved people, laughed easily, and sold a heck of a lot of Avon. Her lifelong love for her home town Herrington, Kansas was legendary. She always had a "surprise" and Little Debbie's snack cakes when the grandkids came over. There was nobody who liked a scoop more than Elfrieda – especially the latest details of her grandchildren’s romantic entanglements.

Celebrating her life on Earth are: son Doug Crouch and daughters-in-law Kathy Fetters and Donna Crouch; grandchildren Jeff (Ashley), Brian, Brent, Julie, and Haley; great-grandchildren Miles and Hannah; brother-in-law Marvin (Rita); as well as many nieces and nephews.  

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made in her name to Holy Cross Lutheran Church or St. Luke’s Hospice House.

Visitation will be held Friday, July 14, from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m., with a service and burial immediately following at Johnson County Chapel and Memorial Gardens, 112th and Metcalf Avenue.  To view Memorial Video Tribute please click on this link:
