Sharon Crandall, age 87 of Ada, passed away peacefully on April 2, 2023. She was preceded in death by her husband of 61 years, Fredrick; and son, Stanley. She was survived by her children, John (Rose) Crandall, Brian Crandall, Allison (Scott) Covell; grandchildren, Cory and Casey Heykoop; great-grandchild, Elijah Heykoop; several step-grand and great-grandchildren; sister, Judy Morgan; and brother-in-law, James Crandall. Sharon absolutely loved the outdoors, which included going up north with her husband to their cabin. She had a passion for trout fishing (Brookies) and enjoyed cooking them even more. There wasn’t a lake close by that didn’t have her line in it a time or two. Sharon always seemed to roll out the red carpet for the holidays, cooking and baking for her family. She adored people! She loved to talk and if it was on her mind, it was on her tongue, she had a quick wit about her. Sharon would play music loud and dance around, especially if Neil Diamond was playing. From the 1970’s up through the 1980’s, she was well known in the Lowell restaurant community where she worked at Paul’s Showboat, Keiser’s Kitchen, Larkins Saloon, Lucchesi Pizza Place, The Afterdeck, and for a time, she went into fine dining industry and worked at Thornapple Village Inn in Ada. Sharon was a long-time member of the Lowell YMCA, where she loved getting together with “the girls” and going to lunch afterwards. Especially at Vitales after getting her hair done at Heidi Christine’s. The most important thing in her life was her faith. Sharon admired her church, which her and Fred raised their family in and attended for over 50 years. She worked hard, fished often, and was always on her feet. Rest well dear Sharon, for we love you mom and all us kids will miss you very much. Until we meet again. Mass of a Christian Burial will be held at 11AM, Friday, April 14, 2023, St. Robert of Newminster Catholic Church, 6477 Ada Dr., Ada, MI 49301, with visitation one hour prior. Luncheon to follow.

  1. My dearest friend. she taught me to love fishing. she was funny, kind, generous – and she made me want to be a better person.

  2. rest in peace, Sharon, and the loving Iris of your Lord and Savior

  3. So very sorry to hear about your Mother’s passing ????????????????????????❤️

  4. Rest well Mom in the Loving arms of Jesus. Easter is coming. Passover is upon us. I think about everything the Lord has done for us. Most of all I thank Him for you and Dad and the ethics and values you instilled in us. Hard work, determination and maybe even a little stubbornness. It feels very strange without you Mom. I know you are in a way better place than this ????. The dimentia was eating away your mind but you never forgot who your kids were. Even though you were in assisted living for the last year and a half and you couldn’t leave the fish bowl, you were still on this earthly plain. Now those ties have been severed and I feel kinda like a child being “let go” for the first time in the deep end of a swimming pool. It’s silly. Maybe not quite like that but just knowing we won’t see you again here is surreal. It’s ok though. We all go through it. Now we know. I will miss your smile and your look of supprise and delight when you saw me when I would come to visit. We will see each other again some day with our new heavenly bodies and we will rejoice. Until then Mom….

  5. To the Crandall Family,
    I’m so sorry for your loss. Heaven gained an angel. Sharon was the sweetest, kindest and most beautiful soul I have ever met. I will miss her infectious smile and our talks. She loved her family fiercely. RIP Sharon, you will be missed

  6. Friday we will gather together for one last goodbye before laying mom to rest beside the love of her life her husband of 62 years.
    We miss you dearly mom but we take comfort in knowing that you are at peace and with the lord now and in a much better place.
    I love and miss you mom and you will never be forgotten.

  7. I am so sorry to hear of Sharon’s passing! She and Fred and family lived at our little motel when they first moved here ( the pink motel on M-21). I remember her fondly. She was a very nice woman!
