In Loving Memory

Patricia Carrozza Crumley

In loving memory of Patricia Carrozza Crumley, born on March 24th, 1956, and peacefully departed on December 29th, 2023, surrounded by her adoring daughters and grandchildren in St. Louis.

Beloved daughter of John Carrozza and Jacqueline Carestio, sister to John, Mary, and Christine. A cherished mother, she leaves behind a legacy through her four daughters. Her eldest, Sita Koletar, rests in peace alongside her husband Daniel Koletar. Survived by Rasa Lila Koletar and Chaitan Koletar. Vishnu Priya Smith, her second daughter, continues to thrive with her husband Daniel Smith and children, Ava Smith and Cole Smith, a testament to Patricia’s enduring love. Sunita Nicole Schmidt, her third daughter, and her husband Matt Schmidt, are happily raising Grayson and William Schmidt. Janaki Streibig, her fourth daughter, is flourishing alongside her husband Jeff Streibig.

A ballerina who lived life on her terms, Patricia was the queen and matriarch of her family. Her unique touch, sprinkled with magic and glitter, turned every moment into something extraordinary. Devoted to Krishna consciousness, she took initiation under His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupāda in 1976.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be sent to Saint Jude’s Children’s Hospital, reflecting Patricia’s compassionate spirit. May her soul find eternal peace, and her memory continue to sparkle in the hearts of those who knew and loved her.

  1. The youngest of the Carrozza Cousins. always beautiful inside and out. Last saw her at her sister-in-law’s Cathy’s funeral. She told me she carried my HS graduation picture with her and showed it to me. Now that is LOVE. Rest in peace cousin.

  2. I called her Trish. I met her in San Diego Ca. She was a good friend and the wisest person I’ve known. She was kind, gentle and just a great person. She will be missed beyond words. Thank you Trish for all you are.

  3. We were childhood friends and I have thought about her often over the years. I am so sorry to hear of this terrible loss. I will keep the family in my prayers. Rest in peace my old friend.
