Mrs. Craven was a person of strong faith and had great love for her family and friends. Though seemingly quiet and unassuming, she shared many humorous stories with her loved ones about growing up in the country. Her family will always remember her special expressions and her reminders to "be careful" and to "call when you get there." They will continue to take care of each other as she taught by example.
