CRAWFORD, Betty C. age 93, passed away peacefully Sunday August 17, 2014. She was born February 10, 1921 to Anna (Kuntz), and Henry F. Koehler. During her early life, she attended Our Lady of the Rosary Catholic Church of North Dayton. Betty also attended Kiser High School until 1937, until she realized the importance of providing an extra income to the family. Prior to marriage she worked for NCR from 1940 to 1950 and contributed to America's war effort. There she met a lifelong friend whose brother was overseas during the war. After the war, Dennis Crawford of Bear Branch Kentucky (the brother) also came to work for NCR. He was introduced to Betty and the couple married April 29, 1950. Married for 49 years, he preceded her in death on November 20, 1999. Betty was a member of St. Albert the Great Catholic Church since 1961 and participated in their Women's Guild and Sr. Citizens activities. She loved to travel with family, and enjoyed quilting and crochet. Betty was an avid bowler, but loved to fly-rod fish even more. She was also preceded in death by a brother, Kenneth Koehler of North Dayton. Survivors include a son and daughter-in-law, Leander (Lee) and Patty Crawford of Farmersville; daughter and son-in-law, Anne and Wade Kuhn of Kettering; a sister, Henrietta Fiamengo of Forestville, CT; grandchildren, William (Lisa) Crawford, Cara (Steve) Kakaris, Adam (Mandy) Kuhn and Adrianne (Matt) McGaughey; great grandchildren, Macie Crawford, Liam and Owen Kuhn, Ella and Ian McGaughey.
