LEOMINSTER----Donna Marie (Tisdale) Crawley, 55 years old, of Leominster, died Saturday, April 21, 2018 in the Rose Monahan Hospice Home in Worcester. She is survived by her husband of 34 years Michael A. Crawley; son Todd Crawley and his wife Amy of Milford; daughter Christy Crawley of Leominster; brothers Robert Tisdale of Rindge, NH, Loren Tisdale of Leominster and Brad Tisdale of Athol; sisters Cheryl Tourigny of Winchendon, Linda Hembrow of Florida, and Deborah Rivers of Leominster; grandchildren Kayden Byington, Cam Rendon, Ava Crawley and Lilly Crawley.

Donna was born on August 24, 1962 in Leominster, daughter of Ennis L. and Athena H. (Burns) Tisdale, and was a lifelong resident. She graduated from Leominster High School in 1980 and was the office manager at Central Mass Appraisals, Inc. in Leominster for several years.

Donna enjoyed spending her time with family and friends. She loved spending her summers on the beach in Maine with her toes in the sand and a drink in her hand. She spent many years involved in Leominster sports while her children were young. A large part of her life was being a Nana for her grandchildren where she played a pivotal role in their day to day and their number 1 fan at their sporting events. Donna was always the life at any event with her bright eyes, perfect hair and flawless nails that would light up every room she entered. Remember her as the vibrant woman she always was and carry her on through the great memories that have been made.

Donna’s funeral service will be held on Thursday, April 26th at 11 am in the Congregational Church of Christ, 583 Main Street, Leominster. Calling hours will be held on Wednesday, April 25th from 5-7 pm in the Silas F. Richardson & Son Funeral Home, 106 West Street, Leominster.

I had the privilege of working with Donna as my side kick at Bennett School for twelve wonderful years. Her smile and laugh were contagious.
Her hair WAS perfect and she loved her toe rings! We worked and laughed so well together. Every day with Donna was a gift. There is a decorative brick in the Bennett School outside walkway that says it best: Janice Palmacci and Donna Crawley The Dynamic Duo.
She has never left my heart and she never will.

Rest easy Auntie - we sure did have a lot fun and tons of laughs growing up. I will cherish those memories forever! Be strong Uncle Mike and know that she is no longer in pain. Todd & Christy: your mom will shine down with the warmth of the sun, in the wetness of the rain and in the smell of the breeze - she will always be with you. Love you ALL!

I will always remember my cousin Donna and all the times we spent together as kids. Having sleepovers and picking blueberries in the woods near her house. I will remember that infectious laugh and how she could always make things fun. I wish we had kept in touch, but know that I am thinking of you today and wish you peace. With Love, your cousin Lisa
