Gaye N. Crim

Gaye Nell Crim, age 76, of San Saba, Texas, passed away on Monday, December 30, 2019 at Shannon Medical Center in San Angelo, Texas. Gaye was born on April 17, 1943 in San Antonio, Texas to Willard Baxter Taylor and Velma Davis Taylor.

She attended San Saba High School. On January 21, 1961, Gaye Taylor married Kenneth Wayne Crim at the Herren Baptist Church in San Saba. They had one son, Jeffery Wayne Crim.

Gaye was a Godly woman who received her salvation by God’s grace through faith in Christ. She nurtured her family and community ties through works and a kind spirit. Friends, family, and townspeople describe Gaye as the “glue” of almost everything she was involved in consisting of community groups, church activities, and family.

Gaye was an active member of Parkview Baptist Church and First Baptist Church of San Saba. Gaye’s work with and through the church reached all ages. At Parkview, Gaye ministered through youth groups and Awanas, as well as assisted through meal preparation every chance she had.

She also was an active volunteer for Meals on Wheels and delivered meals for many years. For 17 years, Gaye worked for San Saba ISD as supervisor of the cafeteria where her service for others went beyond her duties in working with staff and the students she served.

Gaye led humbly and graciously by being the hub of family activity. Family went to Aunt Gaye’s house to share moments of joy, commiserate during the tough times, and enjoy a meal or even a much needed nap. At Thanksgiving, just a couple of months ago, Gaye brought together four extended families, including more than 100 people, for the holidays.

Beyond familiar blood ties, Gaye was family to a community. Lovingly known as “Aunt Gaye,” Gaye Crim didn’t know a stranger and chose to help those she saw who had needs she could meet.

Gaye is survived by her twin sister, Faye Davis, of Cleburne; nieces: Brenda Willis and her husband, Ronnie, of San Saba; Linda Plumley of San Saba; Debbie Creek Dupre of San Angelo; Pam Creek Mann and husband, Rick, of San Saba; Regina Montgomery and husband, Herb, of Cleburne; nephews: Gregg Davis and wife, Margaret, of Hudson Oaks; Tommy Creek (deceased) and wife, Veronica, of La Porte; Allen Creek and his wife, Tammy, of Giddings; Ronnie Creek and his wife, Nancy, of Rockdale; Larry Davis and his wife, Jerilyn, of San Saba; Shawn Davis and his wife, Tracey, of Cleburne; Joe Warlick Jr. and his wife, Melanie, of Cleburne; Aurthur Crim and his wife, Sandra, of Waco; William Crim, formerly of San Saba; Ronnie Crim and his wife, Elizabeth, of San Saba; and Bob Crim of San Saba, Texas; foster daughter, Charlotte Harper Hamric of Ingleside; God-children: Devon Hoyt of San Saba, Erica Hoyt Buchannon of San Saba, and Jeffrey Wayne Hoyt of San Saba; and a multitude of great- nieces and nephews, great-great nieces and nephews, and great-great-great nieces and nephews.
