Pansy R. Crow (1919 - 2009)

Pansy Rebecca Crow, 89, passed quietly from this life Sunday, May 24, 2009, in Fort Worth.
Pansy was born Nov. 25, 1919, to Homer P. Hicks and Pearl Griffin in Lone Oak, Texas. She was the daughter of a farmer who instilled in her an excellent work ethic that she carried her entire life. After graduation from Lone Oak High School, she entered nursing at City County Hospital in Fort Worth, now John Peter Smith Hospital. She met I.C. Crow and they married in 1940. On Jan. 1, 1945, they opened I.C. Floor Service, which they operated together until I.C.'s death in 1982. She continued operating the business in partnership with her son and grandchildren until her health prohibited her active participation in the business at 83 years of age. She was a 50-year member of Polytechnic Chapter 420, Order of the Eastern Star. The Cowtown Posse Riding Club of Fort Worth was a large part of her life for many years, and she and her husband acquired many lifelong friends through their membership in the club. Pansy was a member of Southcliff Baptist Church. She retired to Covenant Place Assisted Living in 2005 where she made many friends. The family wishes to express a heartfelt thank-you to Covenant Place and her special friends for their support during the past four years. Words cannot express our gratitude to Dr. Tim Allen and the 5th floor staff at Huguley Hospital. We wish to particularly recognize Belinda at Community Hospice in Burleson for her understanding and care for our mother during her last days.
Pansy was preceded in death by her husband; daughter, Jackie Crow; her parents; four brothers; and two sisters. Survivors include: Son, Tom Crow and wife, Katie, of Fort Worth; daughters, Mickey Fox and husband, Derrell, of Cedar Hill; and Gayle Luck and husband, Randall, of Joshua; grandchildren, Jennifer Fletcher and husband, Scott, of Joshua; James Luck and wife, Mindy, of Mansfield; Derek Fox and wife, Susan, of Rowlett; Reagan Perez and husband, Roy, of Fort Worth; Koleen Bray and husband, Isaac, of Allen; and Ashley Tully and husband, Jon, of Fort Worth.
