She had a strong faith in God and would often attend church with her grandchildren. She was a wonderful mother (Dustin Crider of Miltona and Christy Bearson of Long Prairie) and grandparent to 6 that give everything she had to make her family happy. At the same time she was happy as long as she had coffee, a donut and a newspaper to read.
She is survived by her children, Dustin (Emma) Crider of Miltona, and Christy (Anthony Torres) Bearson of Long Prairie, brother, Bruce Crider of Long Prairie and six grandchildren.
She is preceded in death by her parents, Muggs and Elaine Crider and both sets of grandparents.
