Mary B. Crotser
17 November, 1960 – 23 November, 2021
Mary Beth Crotser, 61 years of age, passed away on Tuesday, November 23, 2021 in her home in Oneonta, NY surrounded by her family. Mary was courageous through a three year battle with cancer. Her disease took many things from her but her resilience, sense of humor and kind heart was never lost.
Mary was born on November 17, 1960 in Hamilton, NY. She is survived by her husband, Ronald Crotser; her children Sean Emrich, Jessica Wells (Austin Wells), Alicia Hendrickson (Alex Hendrickson), and Jacob Crotser; her grandson, Roury Hendrickson; her mother Barbara Scott; her siblings Michael Emrich (Terri Emrich), Paul Emrich (Martha Emrich), Nancy Woodcock, and Joanne Emrich; and her sister-in-law Sandra Emrich. She is also survived by many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, and nephews. Mary is predeceased by her father Earl Emrich; her step-father Hugh Scott; and her brother, Daniel Emrich.
Mary’s greatest joy was her children. She loved being a mother and especially loved being a grandmother. She was happiest in her kitchen surrounded by those she loved the most. She loved laughter, baking, knitting, music, any and all Nicholas Sparks books and movies, and the beach. One of her favorite times of the year was Christmas time when she got to decorate her home and bake incredible cookies and treats with family. Mary was an incredibly nurturing mother, devoted wife and caring friend and she will be deeply missed by all that knew her.
Family and friends are invited to call on Saturday, December 4, 2021 at 10:00am to 12:00pm at St. James Episcopal Church (305 Main St. Oneonta, NY 13820). A memorial service will immediately follow. The family requests that those who wish to express sympathy consider making a donation to Helios Care of Oneonta in Mary’s name.
