January 21, 1929 - April 9, 2021
Alice Callaway Crenshaw smiled brightly and sweetly for 92 years. Born January 21, 1929, at Georgia Baptist Hospital, she was loved by her parents, Brantly & Maude Callaway, and teased mercilessly by her older brother Brant Callaway. Alice graduated from Girls High School in Atlanta, and with a developing love for education, she attended Oglethorpe University before teaching English at Atlanta’s Smith High & Sylvan High. A heart for service was reflected by serving as a Deacon, Sunday School Teacher, and Women's Missionary Union Leader at her beloved church, Marietta First Baptist. An appreciation for God’s gifts in nature was on display in her membership of the Anne Hathaway Garden Club. Most noticeable of all was the joy she experienced with her family. Her husband of 60 years, Moe Crenshaw, led her through many adventures; including travel to multiple states, Canada, and Europe. Alice’s son Andrew, his wife Christina, and her grandson, Zeb, commuted frequently between Atlanta and Kennesaw, weekend after weekend, visiting, gardening, cooking together year after year. Her youngest son John, and his wife CJ, beat a regular path through the woods, sharing many a chuckle over the antics of all family members, and spearheading annual trips to Kiawah Island to visit Alice’s favorite vacation spot: the beach! Her grandson Sam, and his wife Jerilyn, supplied her with another delight - great-grandsons Michael, James, and Christopher; plus the newest member expected to join the family in May: little Alice Clarissa, the first Crenshaw-born girl in six generations, and aptly named after her great-grandmother. Her grandson John Mark made her chuckle on a regular basis as they shared a similar sense of humor. Her grandson Stephen made multiple pizza runs for her over the years, and kept her guessing about whether or not he would be wearing shoes as he walked his dog, Snacks, by their house every day for the last few years. Last, but by no means least, the plethora of much-loved cousins, nieces, and nephews meant bustling, crowded tables at the holidays, and annual beach trips to Fernandina. Alice anticipated with great excitement the day she was to be reunited with her parents, brother, and sister-in-law, and cousins who had gone before her to Glory.
