A loving mom and homemaker, Elizabeth was an excellent cook and enjoyed preparing meals for her family and for hundreds of high school students over her 20 years as the best cafeteria cook in the state of Idaho. Over the years she amassed a large collection of stuffed animal moose's as well as shot glasses from around the world. She loved to sew, knit, crochet and make hand tied rugs. She married her high school sweetheart and together they loved to travel around Idaho camping, fishing and hunting. She spent 55 incredible years with the love of her life.
She is survived by her husband Larry Crump; children Joseph and Tina Crump (Elias) of Seward, AK; Tony and Cora Kurth (Crump) of New Plymouth, ID; Ronald Crump and David Lilya of Portland, OR; and her sister Penny Mayo (Abnot) and brother-in-law Tony Mayo of Valley City, OH.
