  • Phyllis Silva Crawford’s Life Lessons
    In 2010, Phyllis Crawford’s daughter-in-law Leah Peterson asked her to contribute to a book about the lessons learned in life. These are what she shared.

  • On the Eve of Jim & Phyllis’ Wedding
    This is a time capsule from the night before my parents were married in June of 1968. It’s an audiotape made by my uncle Jerry at my Parent’s rehearsal dinner. It’s quite remarkable. Who will you hear? Who? Age   James Crawford 21 Groom Phyllis Silva 22 Bride Art Silva   Father of the Bride…
  • Phyllis Singing Karaoke
    She did not want to sing karaoke, she was pretty clear about that. So the crowd (which is to say her sisters and cousins and family) let her be. Then, after a while, she got up and sang a wee bit of Sinatra. That’s part of the spirit that has everyone remembering her and saying…

  • Commute
    So I talked to my Mom and she’s having a rough go of it right now. Hard to hear that someone you love is in pain. Her spirits were high though, and I love her very much. She’s looking forward to her and my Dad’s 40th Wedding Anniversary June 15th. Miss her a lot. Sometimes…
  • Bible Reading of the Day; Mom

    A story about her in the Roanoke Times and World News… Go Mom! A look at calendar changes her outlook “God is where the poor are”: Five years ago, Phyllis Crawford, 61, took a class that forced her to examine her life by looking at her calendar. She was told that “what you saw there…
