She is predeceased by husbands Frederick Crocker and Earle W. Crocker Sr., her son Bruce J. Crocker, her grandson Dean A. Crocker and her siblings Helen Fish, Dorothy Cain, Ruth Golden and Harold Hammond.

A service will be held at a later date in the Spring.

Donation in her name should be made to Friends of Falmouth Dogs, PO Box 438, Falmouth, MA 02541.

The family wishes to express their sincere gratitude to the nursing staff at the JML Care Center who provided her with the best care imaginable. You truly are the best at what you do.
