Mrs. Craps was born May 9, 1922, in Leesville. She was the daughter of the late Roddy C. and Girlie Craps Roberts. She graduated from Gilbert High School. Upon her death she was one of only nine remaining classmates. Mrs. Craps was retired from Capital City Manufacturing after sixteen years of service and from Monroe Manufacturing after twelve years. Her deep devotion to The Lord was followed by the devotion she had for her family and friends. She was a member of Dunn's Chapel and was very involved in the Senn Sunday School Class.

Mrs. Craps was a very strong and faithful person that set an example for all who knew her. She was classy and dignified in all that she did, even in death. Always an extremely independent woman, she said it should be known that "I did it my way." She loved to travel and had great affection for all flowers and red birds.

Mrs. Craps is survived by two daughters, their husbands, and a daughter-in-law. She is also survived by seven grandchildren, ten great-grandchildren, and one great-great-grandchild.

Mrs. Craps was preceded in death by her husband, Glenn Craps, her son, David Glenn Craps, as well as a daughter-in-law, Christine Craps, and by eight siblings, Virtilla R. Smith, Geneva R. Keisler, Lillie Mae R. Kiesler, Richard H. Roberts, Leopard G. Roberts, Famous Charlie Roberts, Enos E. Roberts, and Onelia Roberts.

On behalf of Mrs. Craps the family would like to acknowledge the kind care and compassion of the employees of The Heartland Hospice, the Oncology Department of Lexington Medical Center and the South Carolina Oncology Association.
