Delores Juanita Crabtree

Delores Juanita Crabtree, 84, of Hagerstown, Maryland, passed away peacefully at Doey’s House in Hagerstown on Monday, March 20, 2023.


Born on July 8, 1938 in Hagerstown, she was the only child of Charles J. Swartz and Myrtle Irene Alder Swartz. Delores was a 1956 graduate of Hagerstown High School. She worked for Washington County Department of Social Services from 1976 until her retirement in 2004. She was a lifelong member of  Grace United Methodist Church where she was baptized on March 25, 1951. She was very active with the church her entire life, serving as the Sunday School Secretary, assisting with the church’s REACH program, and participated for many years with the Sunday School bowling league. She volunteered at Coffman Nursing Home helping with bingo. She enjoyed aerobics at HCC until she was 75. She and her cousin and travel companion Kathy Brashears took every opportunity to hop on a bus to Myrtle Beach, Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg and Cape Cod; however, she was sure to never miss a single sporting event of her grandson, Ryan.


She is survived by her two sons, Brian Crabtree and wife, Carol and Steven Crabtree and wife, Emily; grandson, Ryan Crabtree and wife, Miranda and great-grandson, Ryker Ardel Crabtree.
