Our beloved mother, Doris Marie Thompson Crane, passed away Wednesday, Feb. 1, 2017. She was born in 1938, grew up with her eight siblings in Radford and was a 1960 graduate of Radford College/University where she graduated early to begin her passion for teaching elementary school children.
She was preceded in death by her loving husband, Clark Crane; her parents, Ora and Nena; sister, Elmalene; and brother Ronal.
She was a proud mother and grandmother. Surviving are two daughters, Pam Crane and Melissa Crane Agner; son-in-law, Mark Agner; and three grandchildren, Jacob, Mason, and Mary Grace Agner; sisters, Glada, Mary Frances, Phyllis, Nancy and Judy; and brother, Bobby.
Anyone who knew Doris knew she was a collector of everything. Her favorite holiday was Christmas and she always enjoyed decorating, cooking and entertaining for family and friends.
A memorial service will be held 1 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 11, 2017 at Simpson Funeral Home 5160 Peters Creek Road.
In lieu of flowers, a donation to St. Jude’s Children’s hospital would be greatly appreciated. Arrangements by Simpson Funeral Home & Crematory.
