Julie Ann Crowe

Dec. 5, 1958 – Feb. 14, 2014


Julie Ann Scott Crowe, Hiyo-mkiyo-nmay, of Pendleton, passed away at her home on February 14, 2014. She was born on December 5, 1958 in Clarkston to Lyman, Sr. and Clara Ramsey Scott. She was a member of the Confederated Tribes of Umatilla Indians.

Julie attended the Lapwai public schools and received her high school diploma from the Chemawa Indian School in 1978. She later enrolled at the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe. She took an avid role in traditional ways and medicine dances. She was also an accomplished artist who used her art to influence the lives of children.     

Julie loved children so much she spent over 30 years as a preschool teacher and teacher’s aide in the Head Start Program, Lapwai Elementary and more recently, in the Children’s Entertainment Center at the Wildhorse Casino in Pendleton. She used to love telling stories of the crazy but honest things the young ones would say or do.  

Julie met and married the love of her life, Edward Paul Crowe, and together they raised two wonderful sons, Lyman and Wendel. Her boys were her pride and joy. The family spent much of their time living in Lapwai but later moved to Pendleton.

Julie was well known for her humor and fun loving spirit.  She loved to terrorize her family and friends, draw parodies, and was always smiling and laughing. She possessed an inner light that we will remember forever.

She was preceded in death by her grandparents, John & Margaret Broncheau Scott and John & Catherine Stevens Ramsey; her parents, Lyman, Sr. and Clara Ramsey Scott; her husband, Edward P. Crowe; brothers, LaVerne Alfrey, Elisha Scott, and Lyman Scott, Jr.; sisters, Wanda and Rhonda Scott, Benedicta Scott Holt, and Darlene Loma; and niece, Shantelle Scott. 

Surviving are her sons, Lyman and Wendel Crowe of Pendleton; sisters, Ermith Gladstone of Seattle,  Lynette Scott of Toppenish,  June Pinkham & husband, Alvin of Lapwai, and Doris Thompson, Sharon Navarro, Theda Scott, Louella Scott, and Wenona Laso & husband, Adolph all of Pendleton; brothers, John Scott of Boise, Harold Scott & wife, Danielle of Lewiston, Wilfred Scott, Sr. & wife, Bessie, Roderick Scott, Sr. & wife, Tammy, Allison Scott and David Scott & wife, Yvonne all of Lapwai; and numerous cousins, nieces and nephews.
