  1. The children of Ned and Gladys Ogburn send their condolences to the Crowder family. Mrs. (and Dr.) Crowder’s names were mentioned often in our home and always with respect. Decent and community minded individual .

  2. Although I never met Mrs. Crowder, I know that she was deeply and dearly loved by her two wonderful daughters as they stayed by her side. I am sure that she was dear to all, family and friends. Sincere condolences for your loss.

  3. Maxine Crowder

    No one could possibly forget Maxine. I recall her many visits to the Tanner household where she would hold court and entertain us all. Also remember her kindness in calling Mom on a daily basis and checking up on her. Never to be forgotten. R.I.P. Maxine and condolences to all the Crowders.
