Betty Croop, wife of the late Reverend Bertrand Croop, died suddenly on Friday, August 30th, about 6:00 am. The possible cause of death is thought to be a heart attack. Betty and Bert were residents of the Silver Lake Institute, members of Perry First United Methodist Church, and Betty continued to attend Worship Services at Epworth on occasion after she moved closer to her son. Betty was present a week ago at Jo Vineyard's memorial service. She is survived by a son, daughter, and grandchildren. As details are made known, they will be published. In the meantime, please keep the family in prayer.
