Dorothy Eleanor Hall Cromwell of West Grove

Dorothy Eleanor Hall Cromwell, 93, of West Grove, fell asleep in death on Jan. 29, after several years of suffering with dementia. As a family, we know that our mother is resting in peace. We look forward to the day when our family will be united with them again.

Born in Monkton, Md., it was there that she met and married Ed Cromwell on Oct. 16, 1940. Ed proceeded her in death in 2004, after 64 years of happy togetherness.

The two moved to the Avon Grove/West Grove area where together they raised their family.

Dorothy had so many happy memories of her marriage, her children and her faith in Jehovah at the top of the list.

They had eight children, four sons-in-law, two daughters-in-law, 19 grandchildren, 38 great-grandchildren, 9 great-great-grandchildren and a whole host of nieces, nephews, and spiritual brothers and sisters.

On Aug. 23, 1956, Dorothy was baptized as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses. She spent 61 years sharing with others the Good News of God’s Kingdom (Matthew 24:14). As a result, she had many letters of recommendation (2Corinthians 3:1)
