Dorothy Lucille Crow, known to most as Dot, of Lonedell, MO, departed this life in St. Clair, MO, on February 20, 2021, having reached the age of eighty-five years, four months and eighteen days. Dot was born in Van Buren, MO, on October 2, 1935, daughter of Frank Clifford Estep and Zella Veatrine Estep nee Helvey. On February 6, 1954, she was united in marriage to Donald Ross Crow and two children came to bless this union.

Dot is survived by her children, Victoria Ree and husband, Vincent, of Lonedell, MO, and Tim Crow and wife, Michele, of Union, MO; by three grandchildren, Todd Walters and wife, Melissa, of St. Clair, MO; Brad Walters and wife, Amanda, of Grubville, MO and Brian Crow of Germany; by six great-grandchildren, Emma, Caleb, Hayden, Hadley, Alex and Dante; by nieces, nephews, great and great-great-nieces and nephews, cousins and many friends.

Dot was preceded in death by her parents, Frank and Zella Estep; by her husband, Donald Crow; by one grandchild, Eric Walters; by her brother, Jimmy A. Estep, and by two sisters, Doris Delatte and Mary Ann Petrowske.

Dot and her family made their home in Lonedell, MO where she and Don owned and operated Crest Machine Shop from 1975 until 2013. When her children were young, she happily served as a Girl Scout troop leader. She loved spending time outdoors, especially fishing and hunting. She enjoyed working in her yard and tending her beautiful flower gardens. Her grandchildren were her pride and joy and she was very active in their lives. Each of them held a very special place in her heart, as she did in their hearts. The love they shared and many precious memories they created will be cherished by them all forever.

A kind and loving mother, mother-in-law, grandmother, great-grandmother, aunt, great and great-great-aunt, cousin and friend, she will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by all who knew and loved her.

Graveside services were held at 10:00 AM on Thursday, February 25, 2021 at Crow Cemetery, Sullivan, MO. Memorials may be made to The American Melanoma Foundation or to SAVE (Suicide Awareness Voices of Education). The family was served by Russell Colonial Funeral Home, St. Clair, MO.
