Karen L. Crow, 73, passed away peacefully at home on July 8th in Charlton, NY. Born November 4, 1948 in Schenectady, NY she was the daughter of Carl and Dorothy (Vageline) Wolf.
Karen was a 1966 graduate of Mont Pleasant High School and received an Associate degree from Hudson Valley Community College in 1968. She worked for many years at the family business, Imperial Lanes, where she was known for her friendly smile and contagious laugh.
Her family always came first in her life and she loved spending time with them. She enjoyed sunny ocean beaches and taking cruises with her husband. She was an animal lover and shared her home with many throughout her life; she will be sorely missed by kitty Green Jeans.
She is survived by her loving and devoted husband, Henry Crow who she met in junior high school. They were sweethearts until college. Forty years later they reconnected and married. She is also survived by her daughters Sherri Gallup and Tracy Bigelow; grandchildren Donovan and Darien Bigelow, Ethan Gallup and Shylah Bigelow-Smith; brother Karl Wolf and several nieces, nephews and cousins.
She was predeceased by her loving parents Carl and Dorothy (Vageline) Wolf, son-in-law Paul Gallup and son Eric Crow.

God has you in his keeping; we have you in our hearts.
The family will hold a small private service.
