Shirley Sue (nee Moncur) Crum Obituary
Shirley Sue (nee Moncur) Crum, age 79, of Perry, formerly of Chapel Hill, N.C., Oxford, and Mentor, died Friday, February 28, 2014, at the Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland.
She was born December 2, 1934, in Mount Air.
Shirley was a homemaker, Physical Education teacher and a librarian. She was a 1958 graduate of Ohio University, where she earned a bachelor's degree in Education and was a member of Alpha Chi Omega Sorority. Mrs. Crum also earned a bachelor's degree in Library Science from Miami University. She was a member of Painesville United Methodist Church.
Through her husband's career as a high school and college football coach, Shirley was a surrogate mother to the men who played during her husband's tenure at Mentor High School, Miami University, University of North Carolina and Kent State University. A smile, hug, or word of encouragement from "Mrs. Crum" to these young men made a difference in their lives and to the programs they played for.
Survivors include her husband of 53 years, Dick M. Crum; sons, Michael (Kelly) Crum of Charlotte, N.C., Joel (Donna) Crum of Youngstown, N.Y. and Jeff Crum of Charlotte, N.C.; grandchildren, John, Owen, Ryan, Kerstin and Riley; and brother, Reginald Moncur of Delaware.
Preceding Shirley in death are her parents: Reginald and Rose Moncur.
The funeral service will be 1 p.m. Friday at Painesville United Methodist Church, 71 N. Park Place, Painesville.
The family will receive friends from 3 to 8 p.m. Thursday at Brunner Sanden Deitrick Funeral Home & Cremation Center, 8466 Mentor Ave., Mentor, OH 44060.
