Altamarie Jenkins Crawford

Long-time Mountain View resident Altamarie Jenkins Crawford, 75 years, passed away at her home Sunday, April 16, surrounded by loved ones. 

Alta was born in Missoula, Montana, on April 6, 1942, to beloved parents James Chester and Otha Opal Jenkins. 

Friends and family of Alta remember her as a model mother, wife, grandmother and friend. Alta was quick to communicate her belief that no problem was so great it couldn’t be solved with a little laughter and a smile.

She was preceded in death by four of her cherished children: Teri Mari, Marie Evelyn, John Michael and Dannael James. Also among Alta’s predeceased loved ones are one grandson and her brothers, Vernon and Fred Jenkins.

Alta is survived by her husband Roy Crawford, who remains the love of her life. Moreover, Alta is survived by daughters Dianne Weekes (Pat Clingan), Tammi (Don) Barber and Erica Fairbourn (Tom Stoker), as well as 16 grandchildren, 21 great-grandchildren and a sister, Nadine Bousman.

A celebration of Alta’s life is slated for Saturday, April 22, at the Mountain View LDS Church at 116 4th St. in Mountain View. Visitation is at 10 a.m. with services starting at 11 a.m. The Celebration of Alta’s life is to be arranged by Crandall’s Funeral Home.

Please join us this Saturday as we share laughs and smiles together in remembrance of a woman who meant so much to all of us.
