Obituary of Becky Crabtree
Becky L. Crabtree, 51, formerly of Lynden, passed away on Summer Solstice 2018.
Becky was known for her quick-witted and outrageously funny sense of humor. She was generous and helpful and was an early volunteer at Sean Humphrey house. She enjoyed extensive travel throughout the US and was an avid photographer.
Birds and wildlife were favorite subjects. Becky had a tender, sensitive heart. She saw and encouraged the beauty and potential in others - and acted on her peacekeeping abilities. A lifelong vegetarian, she supported PETA in their efforts to stop violence against animals. She loved and cared for all animals, especially cats and horses.
She was predeceased by her parents Gene & Virginia Crabtree, and is survived by her immediate family: Nikki, Cathy, Jennifer, Dan (Debbie), and Jeanne Crabtree (Bob Petersen). Nieces and nephews: Neal Koning (Kim Ross), Lea Sadler (Justin Dahl, Osiris) Rachel (Clint Weidkamp, Rebecca, Christina, Levi), Ben Kleindel, Jon (Melissa) Crabtree, Uncles Vic and Bill Larson, Aunts Lil, Christine and Cathy Larson and many cousins. She will be sorely missed by her family, friends Ray, Darci, Mark, Kyla, Anna, Anthony, and Jay; and her IRS co-workers.
