Elizabeth Sue Crump, (69) loving wife, mother, grandmother, teacher and friend, passed away peacefully into the waiting arms of her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ on Saturday November 23, 2019 at her home in Canton, Georgia.

Elizabeth was born on March 8, 1950 in Prairie Village, Kansas to Lewis and Virginia (Roberts) Snyder. She attended Shawnee Mission School where she made lifelong friends.

Elizabeth met and married her lifelong love, J. Ron Crump on April 11, 1970 in Chesapeake, Ohio where they resided most of their married lives. Early in their marriage, while Ron worked days and attended school, Elizabeth took loving care of their two small boys, Christopher “Kyle” and James “Ryan” without the benefit of her own car due to tightness in money during the early years. She did this without complaint, though she had few friends or family members in the area on which to rely.

As time progressed and the children grew, Elizabeth and Ron earned their Bachelor of Science degrees from Ohio University and then their Master in the Art of Teaching degrees from Marygrove College. Eventually Elizabeth would teach almost 20 years in the Chesapeake School District. As always, Elizabeth gave all of her energy into being the best teacher she could be for her students.

Elizabeth’s true love, however, was her unwavering loyalty to her Christian faith. Some of her happiest memories were of those being a member of the Fifth Avenue Baptist Church in Huntington, WV. She loved to hear the messages of the late R.F. Smith and later Reverend Allan Reasons. Many times, their words gave her strength to meet life’s challenges. One of her high points at Fifth Avenue, was a mission trip to Nicaragua to help construct a school for the local children. Elizabeth read her Bible every morning, wrote copious amounts of notes on the scripture, and got on her knees every night in prayer without fail. After retirement, Elizabeth and Ron decided to move to Georgia to be near their son Ryan, his wife and their two young children. Moving from Ohio was not easy for Elizabeth as they were leaving behind their eldest son Kyle and his two daughters Emily and Allyson who had both grown into their own. She became a member of the Eastminster Presbyterian Church where she attended with her son Ryan’s family. She was a proud addition after the move to Canton. One of Elizabeth’s favorite things to look forward to in Heaven was to be a member of the Heavenly Choir to make up for being somewhat vocally challenged here on Earth.

Elizabeth was also a member of the Bridgemill Sixes Service League (BSSL). There she volunteered her time and resources to help those less fortunate. She leaves behind many close friends who became a big part of her life. Elizabeth was truly a caring woman who strived to live her life as she believed a Christian should. She will be missed by all who knew her. With her soul in Heaven, Elizabeth’s body will be cremated and a memorial service will be held at Woodstock Funeral Home in Woodstock, Georgia on Saturday December 7th2019. Reverend Aaron Moore will preside.

Elizabeth is survived by her loving and devoted husband Ron; son Ryan, daughter in law Beth (Keeler) and their children Tyler and Addison of Marietta, GA. Son Kyle, daughter in law Michelle (Fisher) and their son Jacob of Chesapeake, Ohio. Granddaughter Emily Crump of Huntington, WV and her two children Macee Stamper and Maxwell Brown; granddaughter Allyson Crump of Chesapeake, OH. Loving sister Martha Young, to whom Elizabeth was very close and husband Ron; their children Eleanor (Young) Harms, husband Nason and their daughter Mabry Boswell Harms; Josh Young, wife Rebecca and twin daughters Sarah and Hannah all of Carlinville, Illinois. Brother Lewis Snyder, wife Wendy and their daughters Erin and Jenna of Denver, Colorado. Cousins Nancy Stevens of Highlands Ranch, Colorado; Brad Taylor and wife Marilyn of Olathe, Kansas and many close friends and former students.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital or the charity of your choice. Elizabeth would want everyone who sent cards and well wishes over the last few months to know how much their kind gestures were appreciated.

“Lord, keep me from judging others. Grant me patience and understanding, and the wisdom to love every moment of everyday that you have given me” – Elizabeth

Ron and family,
My sincere condolences to you and your sons and family. I did not know your wife, but she had to be a saint to put up with you all these years. I always appreciated you giving me my start in the business and I remember your sons when they played for Chesapeake. God bless you and your family and be comforted in the fact she is now in the Lord's eternal embrace.
Sincerely,

My heartfelt sympathy goes out to Ron, Ryan, Kyle and the family at the loss of this precious person. Sue and I were close friends when we both attended Chesapeake Church of the Nazarene then went our separate ways once I moved to Jacksonvile FL. Like so many others, I will remember Sue for her kind heart and smile that would light up a room. Prayers for peace and comfort.

Elizabeth was committed to all her Third Grade Students.

Her commitment to these students demonstrated fairness, loyalty and care.

She made education fun and rewarding. All her students today are better American Citizens because of this commitment.

She was part of the Snow dance Team.
