In Memory

Sande Cronkhite

Sande Cronkhite


Sande left us to be free of her pain and to be reunited with her mother who preceded her in death.  She was know as "The Lady in the Window" at Stebbins High School where she was surrounded by many good friends and co-workers.  She was a graduate of Stebbins HS (1975). She was a caregiver of the family, taking care of her mother, grandmother and aunts who preceded her in death.  She had a heart of gold and lent a shoulder to many friends and family.  She leaves behind her husband and soulmate of 21 years, Jon Griffith; stepdad, Ed Watts; brother David Cronkhite; sister-in-law and friend Denise Cronkhite; 2 wonderful nephews, Kyle and Trevor Cronkhite; and a host of friends and co-workers she had made over the years. Alas, our Lady in the Window is no more. As per her wishes, there will be no services. In lieu of flowers and cards, we ask that donations be made to Hospice of Dayton. Services in care of Morris Sons Funeral Home, Kettering.

That is sad news - so many gone, at such young ages.

Sande was our little "INDIAN"! She would always talk about her pet monkey. What a sweet gal.

I hung out with her older step-brother Robin Watts. He may have been class of '73. They lived a few blocks from mom so we had more than just the casual school type relationship.

She was a real sweetheart. I was very saddened when my sister gave me the news. She was Casandra in Spanish class if you had Miss Dillon in 7th grade.

If ever the adage "Only the good die young" fit anyone, it fit Sande to a "T"... never an ill word about anyone, she only saw the best in others. A very beautiful person with a huge heart for others.

Not many in high school knew this, but Sande'and I were at the same elementary school(Gettysburg Elementary in Dayton) up through third grade. She was a sweet girl even then. I will miss her.
