Margaret Lois Crall HANAHAN - Margaret Lois Crall, also called Peg, was a woman devoted to service: service to family, service to church, and service to community. Peg was born in Crawfordsville, Indiana, July 9, 1921. She was lovingly raised by her mother and grandparents, and grew up with one brother, Max Edwin, and cousins, Kathleen and Claudine. Peg attended Purdue University where she met her future husband, Frank Norton Crall. They married and settled in Flint Michigan, raising six children. Peg was active in Faculty Wives at General Motors Institute, in church, in duplicate bridge groups, and in school activities. In 1976 Peg and Frank moved to Hanahan, bringing Peg's mother, Mabel Margaret. Peg cared for her mother until Mabel's death in 1986. In South Carolina, as in Michigan, Peg worked as a church secretary, at Yeaman's Park Presbyterian Church. Peg volunteered her service at Middleton Place for more than 20 years as a tour guide in the plantation stableyards, and at Trident Medical Center for 27 years as a volunteer in the errand room. At Park Circle Presbyterian Church Peg served as elder, treasurer, chairperson of women's circles, Sunday school teacher, and in many other helping roles. Peg was intelligent, witty, interested in others and sweetly eager to engage. Besides her activities in the community, Peg was a loving mother and wife, and pursued many hobbies. Peg played organ with an organ club. She pursued needle-crafts, including cross-stitch, sewing, and knitting. She loved to read and to solve crossword or jigsaw puzzles. Peg gardened and excelled in creative solutions for home improvements. Nature and camping in many parks in North America delighted Peg, and she also enjoyed travel abroad. She was an avid bridge player. In the last year Peg participated in Respite Care Charleston where she painted, and her work will be exhibited at Moments on Canvas, held at Mount Pleasant Memorial Waterfront Park, Thursday, October 3, 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. She is preceded in death by her husband and two children, Rose Seva Siri, ne;e Cynthia Lynn Crall, and David Alan Crall. Peg is survived by her children Richard Franklin Crall, Margaret Ann Pearl, Stephen Crall, and Lorraine Susan Crall, seven grandchildren, six great-grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews. The memorial service for Margaret Lois Crall will be at 11:00 a.m., Saturday, October 5, at Park Circle Presbyterian Church, 4701 Park Place West, North Charleston, SC 29405. The family requests that in lieu of flowers donations be made to the memorial fund at Park Circle Presbyterian Church or to Respite Care Charleston.
