Deborah Glen Crowchild Obituary
Deborah Glen Crowchild (Knights, Santelli) passed away on August 5, 2017 after a long illness.

Deborah was born on February 22, 1951 at Putnam Memorial Hospital in Bennington, VT. She was the daughter of David and Patricia Knights.

She received her education in Bennington and was a graduate of Mount Anthony Union High School, Class of 1969. In the years after graduation she travelled the country extensively before settling down in Sandgate, VT with her husband Thomas and her two sons.

She loved her home and was an active member of the Sandgate community. She served on the town board and was instrumental in bringing Mettawee Theater to the church lawn each year. She loved old Blues, the Rolling Stones, driving vintage muscle cars that her family restored and cooking gourmet meals for the people she loved.

Reading was a favorite pastime. She was rarely without a book and had a strong love of learning. She will be remembered for her fiercely independent spirit, her strength as her health declined and especially for her laugh that could light up a room.

She is survived by her mother Patricia Knights of Bennington, her son Shadow Santelli (Rachel) and granddaughter Zoey of Sunderland, and son Tom Santelli and ex-husband Thomas Santelli, both of Sandgate.

SERVICES: A memorial to celebrate Deborah's life will be held Sunday, September 10, 2017 at 2pm at the Battenkill Grange Pavillion at the West Arlington covered bridge. All are welcome to attend.
