Two old Crayne people died this past week. They were both born and lived their childhood in Crayne. Both families moved away in later life for jobs.
She was the daughter of William and Narlene"Babe" Boyd. The family lived in a little white frame house on the corner of Hwy. 641 and the little road today named Stalion Dr. The house was torn down many years ago. Her Mom and Dad lived in Crayne all their lives.
She was married to Oliver Preston "Pick" Perryman, who also lived in Crayne.
They were regular members of the Crayne Presbyterian Church until Nell was too ill to attend.
Houston was the son of Allie and Vera Kirk, of Crayne. He was a combat veteran of World War II, who received both the Purple heart and the Silver Star.
He and his wife, Virginia, were regular members of the Crayne Presbyterian Church, he will be missed so much.
It was always a joy to see and talk to Houston. He was such a nice person, and always had something good to say. I always considered him a hero, for the service he gave to his country. A farewell salute to Houston. I will miss you.
