Elizabeth (Liz) Crawford

Elizabeth (Liz) Crawford passed away peacefully surrounded with the love of family and friends October 18, 2018. 

Liz was born January 22, 1937 to Harold & Margaret Martin.  She was the eldest of six siblings and grew up in Center, CO. 

On January 29th, 1956 she married the love of her life Calvin Crawford.  In December of that year they welcomed the birth of their first son Calvin Richard Crawford and a few short years later in 1960 they were surprised to find out they were expecting triplets, Terry, Tom (Terri) of Lakewood, Co, & Tracey Crawford arrived shortly after. The days turned into weeks and months into years their boys grew up to be men and in June of 1982 Cal and Liz became Granni & Papa.  In the coming years the couple would welcome five more grandchildren and eleven great grand children. 

In the mist of all the excitement she also received her bachelor’s degree from her beloved Adams State College where she later worked and retired. Cal passed away in 2010 and ever since he left her she awaited the day that she would see him again.  Liz lived an amazing full life, full of cherished love, lasting friendships and laughter.  She always said Cal was one in a million not realizing that she was too. 

Liz requested to not have funeral or burial services but for everyone to know she lived a long life and she was ready for her next calling. Thank you to all who have come together to help our family in this difficult time. 

In lieu of flowers please just take a minute to give someone you love a hug or a kiss make them feel loved the way she did everyone to ever cross her path.
