Delthia V. Crader, 85, of Jackson passed away Nov. 15, 2008 at Monticello House in Jackson, MO. She was born July 19, 1923 in Burfordville to Sylvanus and Hester Proffer Eakins. She and Russell Crader were married Sept. 5, 1942. He passed away May 1, 2006.
Delthia was a lifetime member of Bethlehem General Baptist Church in Crump, taught Sunday school many years and was a charter member of the Hester Eakins Missionary Society.
She was an avid quilter, a homemaker in the truest sense and was a charter member of the Sunshine Homemakers Club, which prepared countless bereavement meals for their respective church families, friends and neighbors.
When given the opportunity, she enjoyed camping and fishing with family and friends. Those for whom she cared will fondly remember Delthia for her kind heart, welcoming spirit and attentive nature.

David (& Gail) Crader of Jackson, MO; one daughter, Brenda (& Wilburn) Sparks of Jackson, MO; five grandchildren; five great-grandchildren; four sisters, Delma (& Carl) Stroder of Jackson, MO; Della Mae Abernathy of Jackson, MO; Deanna (& Vincent) Friedrich of Oak Ridge, MO; Darlene Eakins of Whitewater, MO; and sister-in-law, Shirley Eakins of Marble Hill, MO.
In addition to her husband, she was preceded in death by one brother, Donald Eakins, and one sister, Dorothy Scholz.
Visitation will be today at McCombs Funeral Home in Jackson. Funeral service will be Monday at the funeral home, with Brothers Joe Allen, Willis Smith and Jimmie Fulbright officiating. Burial will follow at Russell Heights Cemetery in Jackson, MO.
