SHARON — A graveside service will be held in the Hillside Cemetery in Norwich in the spring for Belle “Peg” Crowley, 91, who died Feb. 7, at her grandson’s home in Claremont, N.H.
She was born Jan. 11, 1922, in Windsor, a daughter of Perry T. and Susan Mary (Gilbert) Clark.
After graduating from Windsor High School, Belle worked at the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company in Windsor until her marriage to George Crowley. Together, they made their home on Brigham Hill in Norwich for several years. They later started Sharon Beef, just across the Norwich line form Beaver Meadow, and she spent the rest of her life in that home. After the family sold Sharon Beef, Belle worked as a dental assistant for Dr. Barry in Norwich until retiring.
Belle enjoyed drawing and sketching still lifes, playing the organ and taking walks, especially through the Beaver Meadow District. She loved being with her cat, Oliver, and most of all she loved spending time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
She is survived by her grandson, Sean Crowley and his wife, Cristal of Claremont; her granddaughter, Erin Crowley of Lebanon, N.H.; great-grandchildren, Isabella, Brady, Logan, Mason and Sierra; and step-daughter, Sandra Prince of Seattle, Wash.
Belle was predeceased by her husband, George; a son, James Crowley; a sister Janetta Cummings and brothers, Earl and David Magoon, Floyd Blood and Perry Clark.
