|Cromwell, Alice Teresa
Birth: 1935-05-05 in Leonardtown, Maryland
|Alice Teresa Cromwell passed into the loving hands of our heavenly Father in the early morning hours of October 6th, 2011 surrounded by her loving family. She was born in Leonardtown, Maryland on May 5, 1935 to Magaret "Belle" Yates Wathen and George Roger Wathen. She was raised with her nine siblings in Leonardtown and graduated from St. Mary's Academy in 1953. She enlisted in the United States Air Force on November 2, 1954 and was in service to her Country until January 13, 1956.|
Alice returned to live in Leonardtown in 1964 and began a career at St. Mary's Hospital that would span almost fifty years. For many years Alice served as a nurse's aide providing warm tender care to the many patients that she came in contact with. Later in her career she became a certified monitor technician watching over the sickest patients from behind her station, her quick eye and understanding of the data that she was processing provided valuable information that served to assist in patient treatment decisions. She was still a full time employee of St. Mary's Hospital at the time of her death.
Alice was a very active athletic woman who played softball on various leagues in St. Mary's County, she was inducted into the St. Mary's County Women's Softball Hall of Fame in 1992. She retired from playing softball after participating in her last Senior Olympics in the late nineties at the age of 65.
As much as she enjoyed softball, bowling was her true passion. Her bowling career spanned more than five decades. She participated in numerous national and state tournaments throughout the United States, she loved traveling by car so she always drove herself so she could experience and enjoy the Country that she loved so much. She had 37 years of continued participation in the USBC Women's Championship Bowling Congress missing only two tournaments, one this year due to health issues. Her most recent excursion was to Texas in the summer of 2010 to participate in her last major tournament. In 1974 she received an award for obtaining the highest individual female average in Maryland, Virginia and Washington DC.
Although she will be remembered for all of these accomplishments, most importantly she will be remembered for touching the lives of many with her generous nature and giving heart. If there was a need Alice was always there ready to fill it, smiling all the while. She especially enjoyed the luxury that grandparents have of spending time with grandchildren and great grandchildren.
Her passing will leave a huge void in the lives of many, but especially the loved ones who survive her; her daughter Sandra Cromwell and her son Robert Cromwell and his wife Ella of Leonardtown, her beloved grandchildren Jason Cromwell and his wife Mandi of Lexington Park, Jeremee Cromwell and his companion Tiffany Grooms, and Terri and Mandi L. Cromwell all of Leonardtown. She is survived by her great grandchildren, Joshua, Megan, Jeremee, Valerie, Lucas, Devin, Liam and Nicholas,. She also leaves behind three sisters, Catherine Ann Hayden, Mary Rita Delozier and Ramona Hayden of Leonardtown.
