OTTAWA - Julie (Bean) Crane-Tyndall, age 53, of Ottawa, went to be with her Lord and Savior Wednesday morning, April 12, 2017 at her home.

Memorial services will be held 7:00 p.m. Wednesday, April 19, 2017 at the Ottawa Lighthouse Church, 200 East Campbell Street, with Reverend Glenn Townsell officiating. Celebration of Life will be held from 5:00 p.m. till 7:00 p.m. Wednesday evening at the church. Gladfelter Funeral Home is assisting the family with arrangements.

Julie was born September 19, 1963 in Danville, Illinois, the daughter of John and Jackie (Myers) Bean. She married Gary Tyndall October 26, 1996 in Seaford, Delaware. Surviving are her husband, Gary, of Ottawa; two sons, Benjamin Crane of Florida and Seth Tyndall of Ottawa; one brother, Ralph Bean of Spring Valley; two sisters, Nancy (Dave) Wallace of Marshall, IL and Sue (R.C.) Vandervort of Ottawa; one special nephew, Nicholas Vandervort; and an aunt, uncle, and four cousins in Indiana.

Julie was a member of Ottawa Lighthouse Church. She was very strong in her faith. God was first and foremost in her life, followed by her husband and sons, who were her life. Julie had served as office manager for Grieves Real Estate for several years. She was a volunteer at the Illinois Cancer Center in Ottawa. Julie fought her own battle with cancer with courage, strength and grace, and was an inspiration to everyone she came across. Her infectious smile will be missed by all. Memorial contributions may be directed to the Julie Tyndall Memorial Fund in care of Financial Plus Credit Union.
