Charlotte Gail (Fitzgerald) Crawford passed away surrounded by her loving family on Friday, January 16, 2015 at Sierra View Hospital.
Charlotte was born on February 21, 1937 to James and Iva Fitzgerald. Charlotte was the second child of three and was her Daddy's little girl. She had an older brother named James and a younger brother named Dwight; both of whom she loved dearly. Charlotte, like her Dad and brothers, was athletic and participated in track and baseball in high school. Her athletic ability landed her a job at Bank of America, where she began a lifelong career after graduating from Garces High School in Bakersfield. She worked for B of A for 44 years in Lindsay, Tulare, Tipton and Porterville. She took great pride in her job and cared very much about her customer relationships.
Charlotte married her longtime sweetheart, Buddy Stone on March 10, 1957. Buddy was tragically killed in an auto accident after only 2 months of marriage. Charlotte later married Wayne Davis and had her children, Michael James and Michelle Janiece. Mike and Michelle had an extraordinary loving relationship with Charlotte. They brought her love, joy and much laughter throughout her life.
Charlotte married Arnold Crawford in 1987. Charlotte adored Arnold so much that her children teasingly called him her "Prince Charming". When Charlotte married Arnold she acquired a built-in-family she loved dearly. Arnold took loving care of Charlotte; he was her rock. He, along with her children, Mike and Michelle and her granddaughter Chelsey, were lovingly at her side when Charlotte left us.
Charlotte's home was often filled with family and friends. Many of them shared Charlotte's sense of humor; therefore any small gathering often became a party. All who entered Charlotte's home left armed with a new joke (to those who knew her, no explanation is needed).
In addition to family, Charlotte had many wonderful friends and a very active social life. She loved socializing with her bowling league and RV friends. There were many memorable RV trips to Oregon, Washington and especially Nevada!
Charlotte was very proud of her Catholic upbringing and Irish heritage. She was loved by many because of her ability to laugh and enjoy life. She will be severely missed.
Charlotte was preceded in her death by her parents, James and Iva Fitzgerald; and her brothers, James and Dwight Fitzgerald.
Charlotte is survived by her husband, Arnold Crawford; her children, Michael Davis and his wife Dyan; Michelle Pacheco and her husband Eddie; Julie Slaughter and her husband Lennie; Russell Crawford and his wife Doreen; Karen Wright and her husband Mike; and Elaine Sewell and her husband Doyle; her grandchildren, Chelsey, Rebecca, Bailey, Kayla, Cameron, Danielle, Kristin, Logan, Travis, Lyndsie, Annie, Allie, Ashley, Courtney and Casey; and great-grandchildren Alexis, Trinity, Brylee, Keely, Braeden, Arden and Angelique, as well as many nieces and nephews, family and friends.
The family would like to express our sincere gratitude to Dr. Menor, the Nurses, Respiratory Therapists and other staff at Sierra View Hospital for their exceptional and loving care.
Services will be held at Myers Funeral Services 248 N. "E" Street, Porterville on January 22, 2015 at 1:00 p.m. followed by a graveside service at the Lindsay Cemetery and then a gathering at China's restaurant in Lindsay. Doors opening at 3:00 p.m.
