ALICE ROBERTSON CROWDER passed away at her home in Johnson City, TN on November 14, 2012 after a long battle with Alzheimer’s. She is survived by her husband Hall C. Crowder, former minister of Gallatin Church of Christ and Community Church of Christ among others; also four children, Hall W. Crowder of Louisville, KY; Crystal Anne Hardin of Yanji, China; Cynthia L. Brady of Johnson City, TN; and Karen L. Ashley of Honiara, Solomon Islands; 12 grandchildren and 19 great-grandchildren. Mrs. Crowder taught at Portland Christian School, as well as several schools in the Gallatin, Tennessee public school system. She was an active partner in her husband’s ministry in many ways, from teaching classes in Sunday School and VBS to helping organize and run summer youth camps. She was a gifted musician, and taught many children and young people to sing praises to the Lord. She was laid to rest on November 17, in Gallatin, Tennessee, and the interment was followed by a memorial service at Gallatin Church of Christ. Her family would like to thank the many friends who have sent condolences. We know that she is now in the presence of her dear Savior and we rejoice in the certain hope that we will see her again in Glory.

Prayers would be most appreciated for Hall, who is still recovering from a serious injury to his left arm. He still has no movement in that arm, and there is a lot of swelling due to a blood clot above the elbow.
