Christine Kronau Obituary

Averill Park - Christine M. Frokedal Kronau, 84, died Monday, October 9, 2023, surrounded by her loving family, at Samaritan Hospital after a long illness.

Born in Fall River, MA, she was daughter of the late Thomas Frokedal and Mary R. Cornell Frokedal and wife of the late John C. Kronau. She was raised in Brooklyn, Queens and moved to Averill Park in 1955 and was a 1956 graduate of Averill Park High School. Chris married John C. Kronau in 1956 and together they raised seven children at their home in Burden Lake.

Chris worked in town her entire career. Her employment started in the dental office of Dr. Dunn DDS. She worked for Key Bank in the West Sand Lake branch. The jobs she loved the most were her 32 years serving the Town of Sand Lake as Receiver of Taxes, Town Clerk, and Councilperson, retiring in 2017. She continued her service as coordinator and volunteer driver for the Sand Lake community van during her retirement.

Chris enjoyed quilting with her friends, reading, and her crossword puzzles. Her happiest moments were always spent with her family, gathering on holidays and especially summer vacations at the beach. She was a communicant of St Henry’s Church and served as a children’s religious educator and a Eucharistic Minister. She was also a member of the Sand Lake Seniors.

Survivors include her children, Mary C. Kronau, Jay C. Kronau, Michael H. Kronau, Jeffery W. (Victoria) Kronau, Kiki M.(Robert) Hart, Kristi K. (Kirk Gansky) Kronau and Jennifer L.
