  1. Mrs. Crawley had a great influence on me while I attended Central from 7th Grade (1965) through 12th Grade (graduated 1970). Hearing of her passing sent me into a whirlwind of wonderful memories and a sense of a great personal loss. She was always a very positive and caring person that I will never forget! The world would be a much better place if there were more like her.

  2. Ms crawly was one of the best teachers at central.Iam really sorry I didnt get to see her before she past.She was a great person and she love everyone. She will always be remembered. Rest in piece “sweetie”.EUnice class of 84
