Dear Crum Family,

Mrs. Dale called my mom and mailed her the obituary. We are all so sorry to hear of her passing. What a wonderful mom and friend she was to all of us. We have such fond memories of Waynesboro and all of you. We hope if you have a service in Waynesboro, we will be able to attend. Thinking about each of you during this very difficult time. Hugs from the Vances.

Olga, Jay and Diana

My deepest sympathy to the Crum Family. Very much enjoyed her wonderful journey to become a good golfer, while I was the Golf Professional at The Waynesboro CC many years ago. RIP.
