1916 - 2014 Obituary Condolences
Sophie Gronquist Obituary
On Monday, June 30, 2014, Sophie Gronquist, 98, passed away at her home in Austin. Service: Sophie's memorial service will be held at 10 a.m. Thursday in Fort Worth at St. John the Apostle Roman Catholic Church. Visitation: 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday at Lucas Funeral Home in Hurst. Memorials: In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you consider making a donation to Meals on Wheels or Hospice Austin, whose staff and volunteers showed such loving care to Sophie. Born May 27, 1916, in Batavia, N.Y., Sophie relocated to Burlington, Vt., and then to Buffalo, N.Y., before settling in Hurst with her husband, Bob. Always an avid reader of books and follower of current affairs, Sophie was a life-long Democrat. One of her great loves was cooking for her family -- the salads she could make from Jell-o are now a lost art. She was much loved by family and friends, her qualities of gentleness, kindness and forgiveness will not be forgotten, and she will be greatly missed. Sophie was preceded in death by husband, Robert Gronquist; son, Wayne Gronquist; and sisters, Jane Fronc and Wanda Ross. Survivors: A beloved wife, devoted mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, Sophie is survived by her sister, Marian Mlynarczyk, of Buffalo, N.Y.; grandsons, Justin Gronquist, Eran Gronquist and Mark Gronquist and Mark's wife, Rachel Muir; and great-grandchildren, Kate, Liv, Luke and Scarlett, all of Austin.
