Angie M. Crawley

 

Angie passed away peacefully on February 25, 2014 at her Adult Family Home in Lynnwood, WA with her loving husband by her side, supportive family and very dear caregivers near.

Angie was born September 2, 1917 to Stephan and Angela Philipp in Springfield, MA.

After a short time in Pennsylvania, Angie came to Western WA with her family in 1925, homesteading on the Tulalip Indian Reservation in 1927.

Angie graduated from Marysville High School in 1936, and shortly after was crowned Strawberry Festival Queen.

In 1939, Angie married the love of her life, John L. Crawley.

Angie had a lifelong love affair with her art and was blessed with a great talent to see people's inner beauty and be able to transfer that insight onto her oil canvases.

After John L. retired from the Navy, he and Angie returned to the Tulalip Indian Reservation where they lived 51 wonderful years.

It was in this place where Angie worked in her studio portraying so many faces that showcased the heart and essence of the human spirit.

Angie was blessed to have many portraits commissioned from all around the globe and was able to see her portraits displayed at the Frye Museum in Seattle, WA.

Angie also had her artwork showcased in Goa, India and New Zealand.

Angie is predeceased by her parents, Angela and Stephan Philipp; her sisters, Helen Lindquist (John), and Jean Morgan (Robert); her brothers, William Philipp (Carol), and Stephen Philipp (Dorothy).

Angie is survived by her dear husband, John L. Crawley; her son, John P. Crawley (Susan); her grandchildren, Kimberly Crawley and Christine Lavelle; and many dear and loved nieces and nephews.

At Angie's request, there will be no formal service.

A gathering to celebrate Angie's life will be held at the family's home on March 23, 2014 between 1 to 5 p.m. 7300 68th Ave NE in Marysville.

In lieu of flowers, please make a donation in Angie's memory to your favorite charity.
