Bee Crenshaw

GAT community, we received the following information from Patty Swenson, niece of Bee Crenshaw.

It is with a heavy heart that I am reporting that my Aunt Bee Crenshaw has passed away. At age 96 she led a very good life. She participated in getting gymnastics established in Texas and the USA. She and Bill are icons in the gymnastics community. They also raised and raced Quarter Horses for many years after retiring from gymnastics. Other groups that Bee participated in include Garden Clubs, both at Zilker and in Elgin, Texas, extension homemakers with both Travis County and Bastrop County, she also did ceramics for many years. Bee even had a group that would go to the house in Elgin to do ceramics every Thursday. 

Per Bee's wishes, there will be no memorial service, but the family will be planning a celebration of life later in September, close to Bee’s birthday, with a date to be determined.  Will will share information with the GAT community when we learn more.

As a reminder, Bee was a life member of GAT and you can find her bio on the GAT facebook page
