So sorry to hear of Mrs. Critcher’s passing. I always loved sitting and talking with her when she was living at Croasdaile Village where I was working in security. I remember her living in Homestead and then when she moved to Heritage Hall. Always a pleasure. She was always so full of life.

So sorry to hear of such a dear and wonderful lady passing. She was my teacher at C G Credle as well as my fathers. I was blessed to have known her and she was always my favorite teacher ever! Thoughts and prayers to you all.

Dear Family, i fondly remember Mrs. Critcher when I was a student at C.G. Credle Elementary School in Oxford, N.C. While I did not have her for a teacher in the third grade I do remember her warm and friendly smile. She was a dear friend and colleague to my Aunt Edith Currin and my third grade teacher Mrs. Marian Haskins. My mother Evelyn also sends her condolences to you. God bless and keep you and give you peace. Sincerely Rev. Cameron Currin
