On January 6, 2020 the Lord took to Himself, Courtney Engelina Gruninger, in a tragic car accident at the age of 18 years. It is with deep sadness that we grieve the sudden passing of our precious daughter and sister.
Courtney was born in Lethbridge on December 9, 2001 and attended Providence Christian School, where she graduated last June at the top of her class. Courtney was attending the University of Lethbridge. It was her dream to become a nurse and travel to places where she could care for those where health care is limited.
Courtney will be forever missed by her parents Cam and Conny; brother Brayden; sister Kelly and boyfriend Josh Pastink. She is also survived by her loving grandparents Pel and Engelina Van Weverwyk; grandma Audrey Gruninger; aunts and uncles Danny & Lori Degenstein, Shelley & Dan McFadden, Andre & Joyce Van Weverwyk, Sya & Chris Vossebelt, Elly & Raymond Grisnich and Irma & Martin Fieret as well as numerous cousins.
She was predeceased by her grandpa Reid Gruninger and her uncle Terry Gruninger.
