Vera Crews-Walker


Vera Frances Crews-Walker is the 3rdth child of 5 children born to Lolita Joyce and Robert Kent  Crews Jr. She was born on June 29th, 1960 in Huntington, West Virginia.

Known as “V”to all her friends and family she spent her years grooming many different talents.

In her early days she spent her time as a welder and it was this type of work that had her fascinated with how things worked and how they were put together. It was this passion that led her to a career in IT. She worked for a small  firm at the Vern Riffe center and later went on to a career at the Ohio Treasurer’s Office where she spent 30 plus years and retired as a Systems Administrator. Throughout these years of positions she met her long time friend and husband Walter. They were married for over 37 years and together as a couple for 40 years.

Vera spent her free time sewing, being outdoors, and caring for others when they could not care for themselves. She truly loved people and could be seen sewing together pants for her father-in-law or making her daughter’s Halloween outfits for parties. She lived with constant pain every day but she never let that get in the way.  Most people never knew the pain she suffered because she still smiled as bright as the sun to everyone she came across.

Vera left this earthly realm to be with her family and God on Monday, September 19th, 2022 in the comfort of her home with her husband and her beloved pets Mini, Loki, and Stink the cat. She was preceded in death by her Father Robert KCrews, Jr., her mother Lolita J. Crews, her brother Robert K Crews, III, niece Jessica S. Crews; and mother-in-law, Bonnie D. Chatman. Left to cherish all the memories of Vera are her partner and Husband of over 40 years Walter Walker, her daughters Allysa Crews, and  Ashley Weatherspoon as well as her granddaughter Nova Jane Claypool. Also surviving are her siblings Ronald ( Beverly) Crews,Sr. Richard Crews, Sr.  Helen Cooper, sisters-in-law, Lisa M. Cumberlander-Moseley(Robert), Wendy Cumberlander-Jones, brother-in-law, Bruce H. Cumberlander; and she had several nieces and nephews, as well as additional relatives and friends.

Vera possessed a  beautiful, infectious smile that  made your day as well as a gracious, and loving spirit. She will be greatly missed by those who knew and loved her.

The family asks if anyone sends flowers to please send live plants or flowers “for those that give life, brings life to others”.

Visitation 11:00am and Funeral 12:00pm Friday, September 30, 2022 at Union Tabernacle of God, 1345 Atcheson Street.
