Lenette Joyce Crumpler passed away quietly at home in Gates, N.Y. on Tuesday, April 6. 2021 at the age 69.

Lenette was born in Cocoa Beach, Florida; to James Crumpler and Fannie Myers (both predeceased), on March 17, 1952 and raised in Williamson, New York.

As a child Lenette enjoyed being a girl scout, playing with her dog and spending time with her many cousin's. Throughout her high school years Lenette was known for her great debating skills. Upon graduation from Williamson High School, Lenette went on to work at Rochester Telephone company, now known as Frontier communication. Moving her way up through the company. Retiring after 40 years of service, as an Engineering Administrator

Lenette was especially proud to have represented and testified in front of the United States congressional committee in Washington, D.C. The hearing involving Global Crossings and their telecommunications accounting scam. Her powerful and emotional testimony was the landmark of the hearing. To this day her words are thought to be the catalyst behind the return of millions of dollars and the judgment handed down to Global Crossing.

Lenette enjoyed traveling the world through out her life. Lenette also loved horseback riding, reading, writing, gardening, watching classic movies, and listening to music. She was unbelievably smart, avid conversationalist, with a great sense of humor and certain way of retelling & delivering a story. However, most of all, Lenette, loved spending time with her family and her childhood best friend, Leatrice Flowers.

Lenette is loving remembered by her children Daniel Walker of Rochester, N.Y. and Malika Crumpler of Rochester, N.Y. Her grandson of Rochester, N.Y. Brendon Diaz. Her sister Patricia Ann (Robert) Mallory of Rochester, N.Y. Her brother James H. (Marsha) Crumpler, Jr. of Deltona, FL and sister Cynthia (James- predeceased) Pigrim of Greece, New York and her best friend, Leatrice (son-Michael) Flowers of Columbia, S.C. As well as a host of niece's, nephew's and others who also called and thought of her as, "mom".

Lenette was loved and will be truly missed by her family and many friends.

A wake will be held on Thursday, April 15th, 2021 from 5-7p at Metropolitan Funeral Chapels, 109 West Avenue, Rochester, N.Y.14611

You're not forgotten, dear;
Nor ever shall you be;
As long as life and memory last;
I shall remember thee.
Your weary hours and days of pain;
Your troubled nights are past;
And in our aching hearts we know;
You have found sweet peace at last.
Gone is the face we loved so dear;
Silent is the voice we loved to hear;
Too far away for sight or speech;
But not too far for thought to reach;
Sweet to remember you who once was here;
And who though absent, is just as dear.
Your smiling way and pleasant face;
Are a pleasure to recall;
Some day we hope to meet again;
To clasp your hand in a better land;
Someday we know not when;
Never to part again.
But though we're parted for awhile;
We know we'll meet again.

I will always treasure all the fond memories of our time at Frontier and those long summer fun afternoons at my cousin's house... you were one of the family to us and loved by all of us, RIP dear one...

We are so sorry for your loss. Lenette was a one-of- a-kind in the best possible way, and a loving and generous spirit to all. She was a very courageous lady, in the fight for her health and in testifying to Congress. She spoke her truth! She loved our family, as we loved her. Her presence and all the fun we had is sorely missed.
