of Pine Knot, Kentucky. At age 18, Agnes became a Christian and joined the Mayking Old Regular Baptist
Church at Mayking, Kentucky. Agnes attended Pikeville Junior College at Pikeville, Kentucky and Eastern
Kentucky Teachers College at Richmond, Kentucky where she received a teacher’s certificate. While attending

Agnes was preceded in death by her husband; Ralph Crawford, two brothers; Bennett Sexton of Mayking,
Kentucky, and Buford Sexton of Orlando, Florida, and a sister; Pat Brown of Charlestown, Indiana.
Agnes will be remembered as in scripture:
Proverbs 31:10-11 and 27-31.
“Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies. The hart of her husband doth safely
trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil. She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.
“She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness. Her children arise
up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her. Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou
excelleth them all. For favor is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be
praised. Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.”
Agnes touched many lives with her many acts of kindness. Her greatest joy was her family, doing for
others and being faithfully involved in her church. But her work here is done and her eternal life with the Lord
Written by her Family.
