Annelouise Crooks of King of Prussia
Annelouise M. “Annie” and “Grandie” (Peterson) Crooks passed away peacefully on Wednesday, May 8, 2018 at her residence in King of Prussia, PA. She was 70.
Mrs. Crooks earned her Master’s in Education from West Chester University and worked as a teacher for the Marple Newtown School District.
Annie was a voracious reader and enjoyed photography and poetry.

She loved her time in Sea Isle City and traveling the world on cruises. Annie was very generous in spirit and loved hosting dinner and Dominoes with her family and friends.
Born in Darby, PA on September 1, 1947, she was the daughter of the late Francis and Helen Marie (Stief) Peterson.

Crooks and his wife, Elizabeth, of Philadelphia, PA; three grandchildren: Cormac, Orla and Carter; two brothers, Michael Peterson and his wife, Gail, of Havertown, PA and Mark Peterson and his wife, Susan, of Duxbury, Mass; and many other loving family members.
