I have been struggling to write this post.
It is with a heavy heart that I share the news that Bex Crowell passed away peacefully on Friday morning, February 11, 2022, at a hospital in Boston.
Although ill, until the last week of her life she continued to crochet beautiful creative hats for the homeless, and also donated them to an animal rescue group for sale as a fundraiser. She also continued to post on Facebook, share her interests, and interact with her friends. Bex often posted comments here, always kind, always compassionate, always interesting.
Bex kept a blog for many years, called Crow Cottage, which she took down a few years ago. She was a wonderful writer.
She leaves behind the love of her life, her husband Paul, and many friends.
She will be dearly missed.
Robert Louis Stevenson – 1850-1894
Under the wide and starry sky,
Dig the grave and let me lie.
Glad did I live and gladly die,
And I laid me down with a will.
This be the verse you grave for me:
Here he lies where he longed to be;
Home is the sailor, home from sea,
And the hunter home from the hill.
