Lucile Francis Stiker ("Mom" Crowe) was born on 20 Aug 1900 in Evansville, Vanderburgh, Indiana. She is the fourth of 7 children born to Eugene F. Stiker and Jeannette "Jennie" C. Heerdink. She is found first with her parents and siblings on the 1910 US Census.[1] They lived at 918 West 2nd Street in Mt. Vernon, Posey County, Indiana, on both the 1910 and 1920 censuses.[2],[3]

Several months after the 1920 census was taken, Lucile married a handsome young soldier, Harold John Crowe, on 16 September 1920, and moved to Indianapolis.[4] They had four children between November 1921 and December 1926: Olive Jeanette, Harold John, Jr., Mary Lucile, and Charles.

She is then found with her husband and children on the 1930 census living at 1637 Raymond Street, Indianapolis, Indiana.[5] Of course, the house is no longer there, and the address now appears as a vacant lot.

Around 1950, Lucile went to work as a saleslady at L.S. Ayres & Co. in Indianapolis. She worked there until 1965, when she retired.[6]

I've been told that Mom Crowe's sole purpose in life was to make sure everyone was happy. In the last months before her death, Lucile stayed with her daughter, Jeannette, who had a "Florida room" on the back of her house where she had placed a rented hospital bed for her mother. One day, most of the family (kids, grandkids, etc.) came over and the children were outside playing. One of the grandchildren, around age 4, was "tightrope walking" on top of the white wooden fence. Even from her sick bed, she was concerned that he might fall and get hurt, so she started raising all kinds of heck for someone to get him down.[7]

Mom Crowe passed away on 20 June 1969 in Indianapolis at the age of 68, and is buried next to her husband in Calvary Cemetery.[8]
