Mom wasn’t surprised by her departure early Sunday morning; however she was surprised that she lived for almost 85 years. She enjoyed life to the fullest. She was a “way maker” for a host of people both family and friends. She loved her Lake Windsor family where she lived the past 20 years. You didn’t forget her if you ever had the pleasure of meeting her. We will miss her presence but she left us with good memories. She was a believer in Jesus Christ from an early age and had an ambition to be pleasing to the Lord.
She is survived by her children, John W. McCrummen (Becky), Judy Sapp (Charles), Jayne Cannady and James W. McCrummen (Donna); sister, Frances Bradshaw (Mickey); sister-in-law, Bonnie James; six step-children; eight grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren.
