Earlene Crowther passed away in her home on September 5th, after an extended battle with cancer. She was a longtime resident of Larkspur, along with her husband Bill, who survives her. She was born in McPherson, Kansas and moved to Colorado Springs with her parents, Earl and Edith Tilton, and brother, Richard, when she was seven. All three of them preceded her in death.

She married her husband Bill in June 1955, and they have two children: Kelly Crowther of Larkspur, Colorado, and Dan Crowther of Henderson, Nevada. The family moved to Larkspur in 1969. Earlene was active in 4-H leadership and the Larkspur CSU extension Homemakers Club for many years. She became active in her church in 1985 and continued to minister to the spiritual needs of others until her death.

She loved the outdoors, spending many hours hiking, enjoying wildlife, and tending to her beloved wildflower gardens. In addition to her children, she is survived by daughter-in-law Crystal Crowther, and grandchildren Tierra Peters and Trevor Crowther, all of Henderson, Nevada, and by numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins. She will be missed by all who loved her so much.

This Obituary Has One Condolence

  1. Barbara and I remain saddened by Aunt Earlene’s passing. Please accept our deepest condolences and we regret we are unable to share those in person. When I think of Earlene several things come to mind. First, she had the loveliest handwriting. I would always recognize a card or letter from her. Second, was her ageless beauty. Her eyes and smile belied her age. Lastly, and most important, was the relationship between Bill and her. Because I was born in 1953 I had the opportunity to witness their love for each other for most of my life. As Bill recently told me, they were “buddies”. Whatever you call it, it worked. Barbara and I strive to enjoy a similar lifetime together.
