“Live! Yes Live! Life's a banquet and most poor suckers are starving to death!”

Judith A. Crehen, 77, of Red Hill, passed away suddenly on December 7, 2019. She was the wife of Warren B. Greenwalt. Born in Philadelphia, she was the daughter of the late Robert and Virginia (McCann) Schuster. Judy attended Cardinal Dougherty high school. As a young woman, Judy loved dancing on American Bandstand. She personally knew Dick Clark and met many of the music stars of the day. In the early 1960s, Judy also volunteered for the USO, caring for those who served our country. She also owned and operated Oscar’s Niche, a pet store at the former Zern’s Market. Prior to her retirement, Judy worked as a receptionist for Dr. Zemel in Perkasie, for 30 years. Judy was a member of Christ Lutheran Church in Barto, PA.

Judy lived a full life, and those who knew her loved her for her free spirit! Judy was very artistic. She loved to paint in her early years and had hoped to write a book one day. She had a kind heart. She was eccentric, and full of love and laughter. She loved horses, and all of her animals. She also had a good sense of adventure. One of her favorite mantras was from her favorite movie, Auntie Mame (1958) with Live! Yes Live! Life's a banquet and most poor suckers are starving to death!”

Judy is survived by her sons: Robert Crehen (Broomall) and Patrick Crehen (Downingtown); her loving sister, Roberta J. Hartley ( Glenside); her nieces and nephews: Jerry Hartley (Abington), John Hartley (Oreland), Karen Hartley (Lancaster), William Hartley (Abington), Kathleen and Matthew Bilyk (nee Hartley) (Barto), James Hartley (San Diego); She also leaves behind her loving grand-nieces, Kataryna, Aly, and Abigail and grand-nephews, Ryan and Stevie.
A private Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial contributions to Animals in Distress, P.O. Box 609, Coopersburg, PA 18036. To offer on-line condolences, please visit her “Book of Memories” at falkfuneralhomes.com.

I believe it was 1961 or 62, but I remember going with Judy down to 46th & Market in Philadelphia to be on American Bandstand. Our hope was to be up close and possibly show up on a couple scenes during the taping, but what we got was sooo much more. While in line Dick Clark came out and introduced himself to a large section, shaking everyone's hand an being extremely charming. Judy used this opportunity to very calmly tell Dick that he played a very important role in her life and how she appreciated his charisma. Surprised by the comment he gave her a long hug and offered us a spot in the front row. After the show he went out of his way to thank her and planted a big kiss on her cheek. That was the extent of their "relationship". On the walk back home she even said "I'm going to tell everyone we're friends." She kept that up till the grave and its really an endearing characteristic!

Auntie, I will miss you more than I can possibly put into words. You were a role model to me and i loved how knowledgeable you were and you always believed in me. I will miss exchanging stories and spending time with you so incredibly much. I will never forget the time you took me ally and mom on a ride in your convertible and it was a beautiful sunny day and you were so happy and smiling. I got my love of horses and collies from you. I only wish we could’ve gone to ireland together like we had planned and to see that ABBA band we like together. I love you with all my heart, forever and always my dearest most amazing Auntie Judy. Love you always, your kitty kat

Dear Friend, you were my true real friend of a lifetime...and I will deeply miss you. I had the honor to spend 18 years with an outstanding Lady like you. You were part of our family: Dino, Elisha and Jeffrey and myself will always remember you for your kindness and sincere affection.
Thank you because you were part of my life.
