Kathy Elaine Crockett

It is with great sadness that our family announces the passing of our sister Kathy Elaine Crockett, age 70, on April 18, 2020. Kathy was born on April 5, 1950, in Nashville, TN. She was hospitalized due to complications from COVID-19 and passed away at Ascension Macomb-Oakland Hospital (formerly St. John Macomb) in Warren, MI.

Kathy lived in California until the age of 16, when she relocated to Michigan with her family. She worked for Firenze Restaurant in Warren for approximately 20 years and had a passion for cooking, not only for work, but for family gatherings. Kathy was a kind and giving person; she would lend a hand at a moment’s notice to whoever was in need.
Kathy was a devout Catholic. She loved collecting porcelain clowns and watching U of M football. She was devoted to and helped raise her nephew Christopher Crockett who will always value the important lessons Kathy passed to him—always fight for what you want in life and never take no for an answer if it’s really important to you. Even without the benefit of family being able to visit while she was at the hospital during this COVID-19 crisis, Chris firmly believes Kathy fought as hard as she could to survive this awful coronavirus.

In addition to her nephew Chris and his wife Jamie, Kathy is survived by her loving siblings, David (Janis) Crockett, Susan (Joseph) Bondie, and Shean Crockett; her nieces and nephews Jason Hogan, Joseph (Marie) Bondie, David (Natalie) Crockett, Joshua (Michelle) Crockett, Nick Crockett, Jeremy Crockett, Matthew Hogan, and Danielle (Ryan) Taylor; and many great-nieces and great-nephews as well as extended family.
Kathy was preceded in death by her parents, James and Janet Crockett, and siblings Debbie Crockett and Laura Crockett-Hogan.

A funeral service and memorial luncheon will be announced to family and friends after Michigan’s stay-at-home order has been lifted and it is once again safe for attending an intimate gathering.

  1. Kathy was a friend of our family for years and years. For a while, she lived on August in Detroit, and knew my Aunt Jenny and my grandmother, and Aunt Jenny’s friend, Joyce, who lived there with Joyce’s son, John. She worked with my cousin Beverly and other friends at Firenze’s. She was always warm, friendly and cheerful and my whole family loved her, although we have not had much of a chance to see her lately.

    She was a wonderful person, full of joy and love and we mourn her loss. You, her family, have our prayers and sympathy, and will keep Kathy in our prayers.

    On behalf of the Daniel family, God bless you and keep you and may He take Kathy into his arms.

  2. It has been a few years since I last got to talk with Kathy. I remember when she lived on August with my Aunt and my aunt’s friend and I remember that she was always very kind and friendly to all of us. I hadn’t seen her for years after I moved out of the Detroit area. I do recall running in to her more recently. Her smile and kindness had not changed in the years since I had seen her. I trust that Jesus will welcome her into her heavenly home and I believe that heaven will be a happier place with her in it. I pray for comfort to all of her family and friends until the day we join her with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

  3. My worst fears were realized when I found this page, but I am grateful to know she’s with Jesus. She was a dear friend and we kept in touch frequently by phone after I moved to Florida. Kathy was such a wonderful person, warm and caring, and I will miss our marathon phone calls. It’s nice now to think she’s with her best friend, Madelyn, and I’m sure they’re having a raucous time of it now that they’re reunited, together with Debbie! Rest in peace, Kathy. I love you.

  4. My heart is filled with sadness at finding out that Kathy has passed; but knowing she is with her precious savior, her sisters and parents, and Madelyn, makes me happy for her. I first met Kathy when I was a snotty teenager – and I am now 52. I loved her from the moment I met her because she is one of those rare gems that you discover to be authentic; kind; loving; loyal and giving. Kathy’s laugh was so infectious – I loved any time that we were able to spend together (with my mom, Teddi and Madelyn). I vividly remember two very special foods that only, and I mean only Kathy, could make: her rice pudding and strawberry bread. I loved her rice pudding so much that one time she made a huge pan of it for my birthday in lieu of a cake. That’s the kind of woman she was. I have tears right now, but they are filled with sadness and happiness – because we all have treasured memories like this of her. Love you Kath! See you up there one day. Love you to the moon and back. Bobbie XO XO
