Deloris Crane

Deloris Mae Crane, “Tudy”, was born on April 3, 1936 to Rev. Floyd and Icie (Phillips) Fultz in Volga, West Virginia. She passed away on Wednesday, June 30, 2021 in Safety Harbor, Florida.


Along with her parents, Deloris is preceded in death by her husband, James Crane, of 39 years; as well as her siblings Doris, Olin, Dennis, Lowell and Wilma. Additionally, she is survived by her sons Joseph Allen Lambert and James Douglas (Lynn) Crane; daughter Carol (Michael) Fitzgerald; grandchildren Bridget, Kelly, Andy, Megan, John, J.D., Katie, Michael and Ian, as well as many loving great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews.


Tudy married Clifford Lambert in 1954 and lived in Terra Alta, West Virginia until becoming a widow in 1973. In 1975, Tudy moved to Clearwater, Florida and married the love of her life, James C. Crane. They remained happily married until his passing in 2014. Tudy loved spending time with family and friends, eating out at restaurants, going to yard sales, collecting antique cranberry glass, and yellow roses. She was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, friend and Christian. Her faith in the Lord was strong and she believed that the true precious gifts in life are found in the spirit of God and our loved ones. Tudy is survived by her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and friends.


A private interment service was held at Bay Pines National Cemetery where she was laid next to her husband James. A celebration of life will be hosted by the family at a later date.

    WOW, although I have never spoke to her in person, I have conversed with her via internet/phone for probably 5 years…EVERY DAY… We loved chit chatting about old things and new things, and aches and pains…ha
    I would send her pics of her surroundings when she lived in Terra ALta…she loved seeing them.
    We both shared the same birthdays which also made us two of a kind..
    I cracked black walnuts and sent to her…she was ecstatic over them….we laughed and laughed over that one.
    Honestly, I would not have known her in the above pic but LOVE seeing them. thanks so much
    I am missing her daily as I know her family down there are too. You have TONS of memories to get you through and will keep you talking for years…sending love and condolences.
