  • I was in Luanne’s class at Galion Sr High. She always had a smile when we’d say, “Hi”. May God’s peace be with her family and friends in this time of sorrow.

  • To The Crase Family,
    I met Luanne in Kindergarten at South School and we continued our friendship through all these years. Our final visit together was last March. I have lost a faithful and true friend. She loved you all so much as was evident in the gleam in her eyes when she spoke about her time with you. Helen, I remember spending times in your kitchen on Wilson Avenue.
    They say grieving is the price we pay for loving. Luanne was loved and will be missed.
    Sending you hugs,
    Vicki (Malone) Meek
    PS: Thank you for proving the zoom of her service.

  • I first met Luanne in fourth grade at South Elementary School after our family moved into the district. I will always remember her laugh, more like a giggle at that age, and the Beatles karaoke that Luanne gave along with classmates Vicki Malone, Jill Fry and Connie Schreck. My last conversation with her was at our 45 year reunion in 2017

    My sincere condolences to Luanne’s family. She was a fine person and I share your grief at this time.
