Obituary for Rita Irene (Marron) Crowley

Rita Irene  (Marron)  Crowley
Rita Irene (Marron) Crowley was born in Butte to Frank and Rose Marron on July 15, 1923, and died Saturday, Nov. 25, 2017, in Missoula. She attended Emerson Elementary and was a proud Butte High Bulldog.

Following high school she graduated from St. Mary’s Nursing Program in San Francisco, California. It was in San Francisco where Rita met and married her beau from County Kerry, Ireland, Dan Crowley. Together they raised five children in the Bay Area: Tim (Katrina), Ann Marie, Cathy (Dave), Dan (Sally) and Bill. Rita was a compassionate, kind, generous, spiritual soul with a wonderful sense of humor.

She is preceded in death by her husband, Dan, and siblings Jim, Frank (Molly), Jack (Bernice), Bill, Mary Laurence (Lester), Rosie, Harold, Baby Boy Marron along with her beloved grandson, Joey.

A celebration of Rita’s life will be held at a later date.
