Crena Lowman Crawford Harris, age ninety-two, died Wednesday, February 10th at The Berkeley Assisted Living in Morganton after a long battle with Alzheimer's disease. Born May 30th 1928, Crena was the eighth of ten children born to Carl A. and Alice Fowler Lowman of Connelly Springs. Crena was married to Brice E. Crawford deceased, and they had three children, Norman E. Crawford deceased, Alice Crawford Abernethy of Granite Falls, and Bruce Crawford of Connelly Springs. Crena married James Hugh Harris in 1981 and they lived on what was known as the Lowman Homeplace. Crena and James worked to restore that property until James’ death in 2012. In addition to her children, Crena is survived by sisters Jessie Queen of Valdese and Vivian Kirby of Granite Falls; son-in-law Dale Abernethy of Granite Falls; grandchildren Nick Crawford and wife Kim of Hickory, Brian Crawford and wife Sarah of Lenoir, Amy Crawford of Hickory, and Holly Abernethy Shuford of North Augusta, South Carolina; great grandchildren Charlie Crawford, Emma Crawford, Allie Crawford, Alyssa Crawford Linkous and husband Nathan, and Cameron Crawford.

Crena's life can be described as a life well lived. She loved the Lord, her family and her church. She was always grateful for everything anyone did on her behalf and always offered a heartfelt “thank you” to those who helped her. She was dearly loved by her family and will be greatly missed. We are comforted by the following scripture: “Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of one of His saints.” Psalms 116: 15
