I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Mrs. "Kat" Crosby. I had the pleasure of meeting Mrs. Crosby many times during my career as a teacher in CMS. Thank you, Mrs. Crosby, for your love of students and the encouragement you gave to everyone. Thank you for your devotion to the CMS school system. Now, may you RIP and know that your job was well done. My condolences to the family of Mrs. Crosby. May God be with you during this time of sorrow.

Wonderful memories of a courageous woman, a fearless leader, role model and friend to children. When I was a beginning teacher in CMS, she called my home one morning just after 6 am. Once I got over the shock when she said, "This is Kat Crosby", I begain to wonder, what in the world had I done wrong? She called to encourage me, to tell me that she knew what a great job I was doing, and to let me know that she was watching me. Talk about "Applied Anxiety" and motivation to keep on doing the very best I could! Thanks be to God for a life well lived.

What a wonderful woman! I spent many years getting to know Mrs. Crosby since I came to JCSU in 1990 and then fellowshipping with her years later at church. She was a mentor and a friend. May her family be blessed with her memories and the legacy she has left.

A remarkable woman. I was a student at Billingsville Elementary. I remember how we all looked up to her. She also did an outstanding Double Dutch! She will be missed. Healing to the family.

The Crosby family has a strong legacy of educational leadership in both SC and NC. As a native of Winnsboro and 3rd generation alumni of NC A&T University, my family has benefited greatly from their influence and work in the community on behalf of students. May God Bless this family in their time of bereavement.

Joe and Kathy:
I am so sorry to hear about the passing of your mom. Ms Kat was a dear friend of my grandparents (James and Inez Ellis) and lived on their street (Druid Circle) for many many years during which they shared a great friendship. My grandmother and I would walk down the street to the Crosby home and there my grandma would spend their time on Saturdays 'catching up' and laughing heartily as they discussed the latest news in the Druid Hills Community and shared joys of family life and their jobs in CMS (my grandma was a librarian at Kennedy Jr. High). Ms. Kat was such an intelligent woman and a wonderful bright light in our community. I admired and respected her greatly not only for being such a fabulous neighbor and friend to our family but also for the activist she was, the integrity she had and the blessing she was to Charlotte and the CMS community. Most certainly, Ms. Kat left a HUGE legacy in Charlotte. My prayers and thoughts are with you and your family. Indeed, this wonderful woman of greatness will be greatly missed by us all.

To the Crosby Family, May GOD watch over all of you and keep you in a special way. Your mother was as big as the Queen of England here in Charlotte when it came to paving away for children in CMS.

Mrs. Crosby was my second grade teacher at Lincoln Heights and a wonderful, funny and loving teacher she was. I can remember being the "teacher's pet" but I also remember her scare tactics for the entire class if even one student misbehaved. She loved us all. Even growing up and becoming an adult, the times that I saw her, she never forgot who I was and funny things that happened in our classroom. She was a true educator, mentor, mother to all, and friend. She will be missed. Joe and Kathy, hold tight to the memories because there is no loss like the loss of your mother.

Thank you so much Mrs. Crosby for loving and caring for us as if we were your own! As a student in Mrs. Crosby's last 1st grade class at Lincoln Heights, I have many fond memories and lessons learned. One quote from her that sticks out in my mind is "It's not what you don't do, it's what you do do." Needless to say, a lot of snickers were had from a bunch of 6 and 7 year olds.

Thank you for your continuous encouragement when we would happen to cross paths from time to time over the years. You still remembered us all in that class and would share a memory or two. You will be missed and know that you were my favorite teacher!

To the family of such a wonderful lady, may the Lord provide you with the comfort that only He can. Bask upon all of your wonderful memories! I'm certain it is well with Her soul!

Hello Kathy and Joe,
My condolences to you and to your families as you celebrate the life and
many memories that you hold of your mother. I fondly remember the visits that I made to your Charlotte home to visit with you and "Joey" (as your
mom called him!).I loved your mom and dad (you and Joe had his smile) and was always made to feel at home. We were good friends then and I still cherish our relationship. Take care and I wish you both the very best.
