Lottie Mae (Crump) Proctor, 101, passed away on Thursday, July 27, 2017, in Kansas City, Mo. In 2008 Lottie had moved to Kansas City to be closer to her daughters but had previously lived in Fulton, Mo. for over 60 years. Born in Clark, Missouri, to Granville L. Crump and Mamie (Bartee) Crump, she graduated from Sturgeon High School in 1934 and later worked in the bookstore at the University of Missouri in Columbia. On June 7, 1941, Lottie was united in marriage to Wayman Proctor and they moved to Fulton where she worked for Mr. Rootes in his abstract office until the birth of their first daughter. Wayman preceded her in death on September 1998. Lottie loved sewing, needlework and gardening. Outfits were sewn for both children and dolls and many aprons were cross stitched for the annual church bazaar. Growing flowers and vegetables were favorite hobbies. When the red geraniums appeared in pots around the house, it was summer. Lottie was an active member of the Court Street United Methodist Church and kept her membership in the church after moving to Kansas City. She especially enjoyed working in the apron booth and kitchen at the bazaar. Lottie is survived by her two daughters, Beverly (Proctor) White and Nancy J. Proctor, both of Kansas City; two very special grandpups, Coco and Lily; five nieces and nephews, Sue Johnson (Frank), Linda Clark (Ron), Joe Lee Crump all of Mexico, Mo., Charles Crump (Jane) of Frankenmuth, Mich., Martha Jane Schlecht ( Dick) of Rochester Hills, Mich.; eight great-nieces and nephews; 11 great-great-nieces and nephews and five great-great-great-nieces and nephews; and a cousin, Dorothy McGowan, Sun City West, Ariz. Lottie was preceded in death by her parents and her husband; three brothers, Orville Crump, Leo Crump, and Floyd Crump; and three sisters-in-law, Glorene, Edna Mae (Peggy) and Lucille. Many thanks to the staffs at Benton House of Tiffany Springs, Stonecrest at Burlington Creek in Kansas City and Home Instead Senior Care of Liberty for their care of and compassion toward Lottie during the past two years.
