MILDRED LOIS CROWE (Millie)

Millie passed away on July 26, 2012 at the age of 85 in Victorville CA. She was born on Feb. 5, 1927 in City Terrace, Los Angeles County, to William and Goldie Belle (Oliver) Bundy. She was preceded in death by her parents, husband Robert Crowe, who she married in 1945 at Rosemead, CA., daughter Sharon Valencia and brothers Robert and Edgar. She is survived by her son Bill and daughter-in-law Jayne, brother Richard Bundy and sisters Jean McGaffey and Ruth Berg, her grandchildren Irene, Maddy, Lisa, Jody, John, Amie and 16 great-grandchildren.

She worked at various jobs while growing up and at Santa Fe RR during the war. After her children were born she stayed home to raise them. She wrote poetry and had some published. She loved bowling & painting and taught oil painting classes in Mission Viejo before moving to Highland Springs Village in Cherry Valley. While there she took over raising her grandchildren after her daughters passing.

She was proud to say she was married for over 58 years before her husband passed after a long illness. She handled all that came her way with strength, dignity and grace.

Her family will cherish all that she taught them, and she will forever be deep in our hearts. May the road rise to meet you and guide us to you when it is our time.

Services will be private. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Community Hospice of Victor Valley. 16147 Kamana Road, Apple Valley, CA 92307.
