Elizabeth Jean Crouse

Crouse; Elizabeth Jean, age 90, formerly of West Berlin, Queens County, passed away peacefully in Queens General Hospital on Wednesday August 30, 2023, with family by her side in her final days.
“Betty” was a devoted mother and grandmother, full of love and compassion for her family, friends and community. When anyone was feeling down or dealing with a loss, Mom’s first thought was to bake for them and provide comfort in the best way she knew how. Many families in the community will remember Mom’s ginger cookies, pies, squares, and hot milk cakes; sure to have sampled a few over the years. Nanny was beaming with pride knowing many of her recipes are being carried on through her granddaughter.
Many years ago, Mom, combining her love of baking and community, baked as a way to fundraise for the materials needed to improve the St. John’s Anglican Cemetery in West Berlin. She spent many long days happily working away and expanding the area to what it is today. She will take her final rest there alongside family lost to her far too early.
Mom worked tirelessly in her flower gardens, often seen out in her yard from daylight to dark. For a little lady, she managed to do a tremendous amount of hard physical work, caring for her property until just a few months shy of her 89th birthday, at which time she moved to Hillsview Acres. After a life of hard work, it’s time for her to rest.
Elizabeth is survived by her son Bradford of West Berlin, daughter Lynn (Jeff Parks) of Lewis Lake, daughter-in-law Sheila, grandchildren Robert, David, Kevin and Bryden Crouse, Liam and Lauren Parks, step-granddaughter Hailey Langille, great-grandchildren Olivia and Madison Crouse, Riley Whynot and Kale Langille.
Elizabeth was predeceased by her son Dwight, daughter-in-law Sarah and grandson Jacob.
Cremation has taken place under the direction of Chandlers’ Funeral Home, Liverpool. At Elizabeth’s request, there will be no public funeral service, but a private family graveside service will be held at a later date. No flowers; donations in Elizabeth’s memory may be made to a charity of your choice. Online condolences may be made to
The family would like to thank the staff of Hillsview Acres for the wonderful care that Elizabeth received during these past two years. Mom spoke highly of all the staff and appreciated all that they did for her.
