Serving the Community Since 1960

Memorial Service: 2:30 p.m., Sunday,  May 22, 2022

Location: St. Stephen's Episcopal Church

CROW, Edward Jennings “Jim”, 84, went to be with the lord on April 23, 2022.  He was born in Clarksdale, Mississippi.  In 1967, Jim moved to Virginia to begin his career as an Electrical Engineer at Newport News Shipyard after attending the University of Mississippi and proudly serving in the United States Marine Corps.  Alongside his wife, he loved to travel and explore new places, both here in the United States and abroad.  As a husband, father, and grandfather, Jim had a strong devotion to his family.  He loved the water; beach, lake, river and swimming pool and always looked forward to his annual family vacations at Nags Head.  He loved his four-legged family, especially his Shelties, and often joked that he married Katrine to gain ownership of her cats.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Edward J. Crow, Sr. and Katherine Inez Crow. He leaves on this earthly home his loving wife of fifty-two years, Katrine Kincannon Crow; his three daughters, Kathy E. Crow (David Fitt), Kristy C. Packett (Marion James Packett), and Kari A. Egnot (Gregory Egnot); and five granddaughters, Kayla A. Egnot, Lindsey E. Egnot, Emma K. Packett, Sadie J. Packett, and Mary-Michael Hardy. He was very proud of and loved “his girls”. Jim could always count on coffee and great conversation with his dear friends Bob and Ann Berrier.

The family would like to acknowledge the amazing health care workers that cared so deeply for Dad during his last weeks.

A Memorial Service will be conducted at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, May 22nd at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church.  In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Wise County Animal Rescue Coalition (ARC) PO Box 863 Wise, VA 24293 or the Educational Scholarship fund at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church, 372 Hiden Blvd. Newport News, VA 23606.

Jim was such a nice person and a delight to chat with and learn about the Crow family. I am so glad I had the chance to get to know him and Katrine and the family. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Kari “Sue”, I am praying for you, Greg, space and the girls. Also to your mama and the rest of your family. No one ever prepares us for this time in life but somehow you’ll get through it as you try to remember the good fun times you had with your dad. The girls should’ve been so proud to have him along with your mom on the sideline every field hockey game. Know that as you go forward your friends are here to support you in anyway you need us.
