LOIS E KRASINSKI (Newton)
Our lovely mother, age 93, left this world on July 24, 2020 at 8:50pm to join our Lord and Savior in Heaven. Born on November 21, 1926, in Galliver FL, to Bonnie Bell and Louie B. Newton, she grew up in Crestivew FL with eight siblings. As a young woman she met the love of her life, Albert Krasinski, at the local Hilton Drive In restaurant where she worked as a car hop. She would say that daddy would specifically ask for her to wait on him and that he always ordered a ham sandwich. This meeting started a love story that would last for 53 years of marriage and continued for her even after daddy passed in 2005. During their love story they traveled the world in the US Air Force. On November 25, 1957, they started their family in Germany with the birth of their first daughter Monica. Their second child, and only son, Stanley would greet them on December 18, 1959, in North Dakota. To round out their family of five, they were greeted by their third child, Bonnie on December 15, 1963, in North Dakota. While daddy worked and brought home the bacon, Mother raised us kids, took care of the home, paid bills, disciplined us kids, cooked awesome meals, made sure we kids got up and to school on time and loved each of us generously and unconditionally. Although Mother and daddy didn't have a lot of money and material goods, they provided a wonderful life for us kids. Traveling by car was always an adventure and the roadside picnics will be remembered fondly. Mother loved all of her family. She loved her mother and father and all of her siblings. When daddy retired from the US Air Force, she was ready to move back to Crestview FL to be close to her Mama and siblings. During our life in Crestview we made many, many lovely, funny and joyous memories with our immediate and extended family. Mother lead a full and happy life. She loved our Lord and Savior, her husband, us kids and the rest of her family. She and her siblings remained close throughout her wonderful life. On April 2, 1999, Mother entered a new role in her life when she became a grandmother to Karlee Prevatt. She was thrilled again when on February 25, 2005, her son and now ex-daughter in law Sherry blessed her with the birth of twin Krasinski boys, Stanten and Shelten. She also loved her little puppies, Sweetie and Scooter, and specifically requested prior to her death that I, Bonnie, make sure to take care of the puppies. Although her death was sudden and unexpected, we kids and extended family know that she is at peace, is healthy and happy to be reunited with our daddy and her loved ones that passed before her.
Mother was predeceased by our daddy Albert H. Krasinski, her mother Bonnie Bell Newton, father Louie B. Newton, brother Orville Newton, Sister Eva Lee Greene, Brother Ernie Newton, Brother Charlie Newton, Brother Jimmy Newton, sister in law Louise Newton, sister in law Mildred Newton and sister in law Gwen Newton.
Mother is survived by daughters Monica Prevatt (Andy), Bonnie Krasinski, son Stanley K. Krasinski and ex daughter in law, Sherry Hoffman. She is also survived by her beautiful and wonderful grandchildren, Karlee K. Prevatt, Stanten and Shelten Krasinski. She always beamed with love and pride when talking about her grands.
She is also survived by her sisters Myrlene Sivley and Edith Hilburn, brother Al Newton and numerous nieces and nephews, family friend Elizabeth Prevatt and "adopted" granddaughter, Carolina Cody.
Our family wishes to extend our love, gratitude and overall thanks to Mother's angels on earth: Linda Henderson and Linda Parenteau. God blessed Mother and our family with these beautiful angels that loved our Mother and took exceptional care of her for many years. These angels loved our Mother, and she loved her angels. I know they will miss her as much as we will.
Mother's funeral service will be conducted at Whitehurst -Powell Funeral Home in Crestview FL on Monday, August 3, 2020 with visitation from 10:00am to 11:00am, followed by the memorial service.
