Sarah White Crigler, 92, passed away peacefully on Friday, June 19, 2020 at Dogwood Village Senior Living in Orange, Va. Sarah was predeceased by her husband, Robert “Bob” Crigler; her parents, Leslie Carpenter White and John Jay White; and a sister, Catherine W. Ramsey. A lifelong resident of Madison County and owner of Brookside Farm in Brightwood, she was a homemaker and past director of the Madison County Library where the Genealogy Room is dedicated in her honor. As a member of Hebron Lutheran Church, Sarah worked on historical committee projects and served as a church docent. Sharing her homemade pound cakes, dinner rolls, and Christmas custard; playing bridge with friends; creating needlework projects; and researching family genealogy were favorite past times.
Sarah is survived by her children - Pam Nelson (Jim); John Crigler (Kathy); Jane Spivey (Alan); and Ann Fondren (Robert). Her grandchildren are Lee Nelson (Jessica); Sarah Nelson Brolley (Eric); Leslie Crigler DeBrosse (Mark); Nicholas Crigler; Laura Crigler; and Allison Spivey. Her great-grandchildren are Linda and Mary Nelson; Jacob and Caleb Brolley; and Cora DeBrosse. She is also survived by her brother, Kavanaugh White, and his wife, Beppy.
The family would like to thank Dogwood Village for Sarah's care with a special thank you to the third floor nursing staff and especially Angela Humes for being her caregiver and special friend.
Due to the Covid 19 Pandemic, funeral services are private. Memorial contributions may be shared in Sarah Crigler's name to the Hebron Lutheran Church Foundation, PO Box 1542, Madison, Va 22727.
Our condolences and sympathies to Pam, Ann, and the entire Crigler family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this time of loss.
Sarah was such a generous woman. She opened her beautiful historic home to so many of us who came from all over...At the Clore/Crigler reunions and the Germanna Conference weekends. Hundreds of people were welcomed by her at her home and in Hebron Lutheran Church. She will be greatly missed.
