May 20, 1942 – May 11, 2015
Sallie Barengoltz passed away in hospice care at home with her loving husband of 42 years, Jack, by her side.
Sallie was born in Seattle, Washington to Lucille and Walter Anderson. She attended the University of Washington, receiving a BA in education and an MS in special ed. She was an avid Huskies football fan.
Sallie and her son John Crowdy moved from the Seattle area to La Crescenta and Glendale to be with Jack. She taught elementary, high school and special education in Rosemead area schools for 20 years before she had to retire on disability. John became Jack’s son as well.
Sallie loved flowers, birds, dogs and baroque music. In their early years together, Sallie, Jack and John enjoyed hiking and backpacking. Later Sallie and Jack did some serious traveling. They also enjoyed taking their dog Lacey for walks in Whiting Woods and greeting everyone.
Her great joy was the family that John provided for her to be Grammy … her loving daughter (forget the “in-law”), Suzy, and two wonderful grandchildren, Tori and Tim.
Sallie is also survived by her sister Dolores Potter of Wrightwood and her brother Donald of Olympia, Washington.
