Virginia R. Crone

WILLIAMSPORT, Ind. — Virginia R. Crone, 91, of Williamsport, Ind., is celebrating in heaven today after she passed this life at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday March 20, 2013, at Hoopeston Community Memorial Hospital.

She was born Dec. 28, 1921, in Bismark, Ill., the daughter of Lee R. and Lola (Claypool) Smith.

She married her husband of 70 years, Boyd M. Crone, on Sept. 28, 1942, at her parent’s home in rural Warren County.

Surviving family include her husband, Boyd Crone, Williamsport; two sons, Ron (Roberta) Crone and William (Patti-Joy) Crone, both of Williamsport; a daughter, Carol (Fred) Marques of Mishawaka, Ind.; two sisters, Louise (Robert) Overpeck, West Lebanon, and Joyce (Jim) Marble, Robinson, Ill.; two brothers, Donald (Joyce) Smith and Lowell (Betty) Smith, both of Bismark, Ill.; eight grandchildren; five step-grandchildren; 16 great-grandchildren; and nine step great-grandchildren.

She is preceded in death by two sisters and one brother.

Virginia graduated from West Lebanon High School in 1940 and attended Lafayette Business College. She had been employed over the years at Purdue and Warren County treasurer’s office. She had been an active member of the Tab Christian Church since 1947.

The pride of her life was her family, all of whom she loved very much, especially her grandchildren. She enjoyed being outdoors, gardening and raising flowers. She also enjoyed her two dogs “Buddy” and “Lobo”, who will certainly miss her.

Funeral service will begin at 1 p.m. EDT Sunday, March 24, at Grady Funeral Home, 111 E. Monroe St., Williamsport, with Pastor Rod Andrews and Pastor Don Williams officiating. Interment: West Lebanon Cemetery. Visitation will be 1–4 p.m. EDT Saturday, March 23, at Grady Funeral Home.
