Delores (Dee) Louella Farrand (Creutzburg)

Dee Farrand, 90, went to be with Jesus on September 1, 2021.  She was born on August 17, 1931, in Chicago, IL to Harry Creutzburg and Angie Creutzburg nee Givens.  She graduated from Peoria High School and married Leland (Lee) Farrand on March 5, 1951.  They had four children.  They were happily     married and celebrated over 50 years together before he passed away on December 28, 2001.  He was her one and only truly love, after God.  She accompanied Lee as a military spouse      traveling the US and overseas to Germany twice.  In 1964 they returned to the United States and settled in Thurston County where she had been a longtime resident.

She was always wanting to learn and was able to attend community college where she focused on bookkeeping.  She worked for Dr. Kornmesser, City of Olympia, JC Penney and Money Savers mini storage.  After retirement she and Lee sold their home in Lacey and they traveled the United States by RV for nearly 10 years.  They returned and purchased a home in Shelton and then eventually moved to Lacey in October 2001, where she was a resident of Panorama for 20 years.  Dee also took up Taekwondo in her 60’s where she participated in earning several colored belts.  She was always physically active.  She loved swimming, riding her bike or walking by herself or with a group in her community.  She was an evangelist and missionary.  She traveled to Mexico and Albania to minister the Word of God.  She volunteered for the Washington Corrections Center for Prison Ministries, Care Net Pregnancy Center, Young Ministries, Compassion International and Child Evangelism Fellowship.  She loved to be an ambassador to Christ and communicate His story to everyone she met.  She always put Him first.  She attended Calvary Chapel North Thurston where she always felt at home with family.

She is survived by her son, Allen (Lorraine) Farrand of Palouse; and grandchildren: AlyssaMarie Link and Joshua Farrand; her daughters Terrie (Jerry) Washburn of Arlington and Karen (Edward) Alfano of Port Orchard; grandchildren AmieJo Anderson, Paul Glahn and Tiffany Glahn and 8 great grandchildren; her son David Farrand preceded her in death.
