Irene Mae Crippen, was born on June 14, 1944 to the late Leon and Larenetta Holden Crippen. She departed this life on December 17, 2019 at Riverside Shore Memorial Hospital in Onancock, Virginia.

Irene was educated in the public schools of Accomack County and graduated from Mary N. Smith High School. She was employed at Don’s Seafood in Chincoteague, Virginia for many years. She loved to cook and was well-known for her chicken and dumplings and amazing turnip greens. Most of all, she was known for her kindness, helping hand, and wise counsel. For Irene, there was nothing better than family, and she showed them her love at all times. There was nothing she wouldn’t do for her family, especially her grandchildren and great-grandchildren; they were her heart. Her passion was decorating and redecorating her house and riding to the store with her daughter, Wynette. She lived and loved life to the fullest each day.

Irene was preceded in death by a son, Amos Crippen; three brothers, Richard, Marvin, and Levi Crippen; and two sisters, Gwendolyn Crippen and Carlene Jackson.

She leaves to cherish her memories: her children, Faithe Collins (Wayne), Morisceller Crippen (Marshell), and Wynette Morris (Craig, Sr.); grandchildren, Terrell Davis (Christopher), Wayne Collins, Jr., Craig Morris, Jr., Lakea Crippen, Lakenya Crippen, and Leon Crippen; great-grandchildren, Nygeria Marshall, Lavor Johnson, Wayne Collins, III, Breonna Turlington, Kingston Collins, Jaylon Strand, Shawn Crippen, DeJour Crippen, Makayla Walker, and Byshere Brown; three sisters, Loretta Dale, Arlene Copes, and Pastor Larraine White; and a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives, and friends.
