Betty Jane Dreisbach Crosson, age 87, of Chadds Ford, PA, died Friday March 9, 2018 at the Pocopson Home in West Chester, PA. She was the wife of the late Robert Crosson who died in 1992 and with whom she shared 42 years of marriage. Born in Lancaster, PA, she was a daughter of the late William H. and the late Erma A. (Gaul) Dreisbach Sr.

Betty worked for Hillendale Elementary school for many years in the cafeteria. She loved the outdoors, working in her garden, cutting her own lawn till the age of 75 and was a longtime member of the Garden Club of Kennett Square. She enjoyed sewing and for many years made her own clothing and curtains. Betty was a hard worker, careful with her money and never smoked or drank alcohol. She was proud to be driving till the age of 81 when she realized on her own it was time to give up the keys.

Survivors include her grandson Kevin Buckingham (Sarah Young) of Chadds Ford, PA.

  1. I am the daughter of Kathryn Fenstermacher a life long friend of Betty Crossan. I wanted to take a moment and express my deepest sympathy for the family during this difficult time. Mom truly loved chatting on the phone and going to church with Betty as well as they attend school together. Again, please know you are in our thoughts and prayers, and that your grandmother was a lovely lady. She always spoke so highly of you to mom.
