Kristy was a popular, gregarious cheerleader in high school, who became a young mother to her daughter Cassandra at 19. Then she found a drug life style that took her away from us for 20 years. In 2010 she suffered an aneurysm and by God’s grace and mercy she was healed from that long time addiction and she never touched any drug again.
While she fought through the physical complications caused by her lifestyle in the past, she found a passion to help homeless and also to talk to young people about drug abuse. Our mom, Mary Ann, was inspired by Kristy’s sincere desire so the two of them began gathering items for homeless people, for blessing bags and started the charity Kristy’s Legacy, a foundation Kristy hoped would do good after she was gone. https://www.facebook.com/KristysLegacy/?fref=ts
In August 2012, she went in to hospital for a small scheduled surgery. It didn’t turn out well as expected. She nearly lost her life right after the surgery. Yet she was determined to live through so she could share her story with others. Many of her friends and her church family prayed for her healing. After 3 weeks she was released from the hospital to go home.
She was able to spend 3 days with family and her kitty that she loved before God called her Home on September 7th, 2012. She was survived by her daughter Cassandra Grimmet, siblings Kathy Tolleth McQueen, Jon Tolleth, and Sandra Laurence. Also her parents Fred Tolleth, and Maryann and Jerry Haynes.

Married to Joan L Tolleth, Alan died of Lung Cancer which metastasized to his brain. He had a degree in Biochemistry and once told me a story about helping put man on the moon by inventing something that worked within the filtration system. Apparently he got a plaque from NASA for it. I am told it hung at the Smithsonian, someday I’d like to apply to see it and check out the story.. He quit working as a chemist because he said the labs were too dangerous, people kept getting blown up. Afterwards he started to raise cattle in Oregon. We had a big Fourth of July family reunions there every year. He and my father Fred were very close, but I never met my Uncle Hale because of a falling out between the brothers. He and Joan had four sons; Jon, David, Grant and Matthew who survived him.

Her ashes were spread on the top on Mt Si overlooking the Snoqualmie Valley where her grandchildren grew up; Carlene Laurence, Angie Laurence, Sandra Tolleth Laurence and Kathy Tolleth McQueen in attendance. After her ashes were dispersed a cloud of green dragonflies appeared out of nowhere to chase the dust down the mountain….so now when we see a dragonfly we think of Grandma Theresa.
Claire Tolleth is my grandfather, he married twice before dying in 1964 having never served in either of the great wars, probably because he had rheumatoid arthritis . He was the father of four children and a sign painter by profession.

My great great great grandmother Mrs. Martha Jones Tolleth, died December 31 age 82 years 11 months and 22 days.
Mrs. Tolleth was born in Cayuga county N.Y. January 8 1825, and was carried westward by the tide of immigration to share in the experience of pioneer life. She has outlived three husbands and has usually made her home with her daughter Mrs. Frank Fanning of the east divide, since her last husband’s death. She had just returned from Wisconsin where she has one child residing and again takes up her home with Mr. Fanning. A _________ prior to her death she hurt her hand slightly, and from which it was thought she had recovered. On Saturday before her death it became apparent that the injury, though slight, was threatening to become serious. A physician was summoned and it was pronounced blood poisoning which despite the best of care and attention ended her life at 10 o’clock p.m. the last day of the old year thus enabling her to begin the New Year with her Maker.
She leaves two sons and two daughters,many relatives and a host of acquaintances and friends, to mourn her loss.
The funeral occurred from the Fanning residence, January 2 , 1908,conducted by Elder Wine. Internment in Mount Hope Cemetery.”
