Ada Tater Crill

January 14, 2014 — May 9, 2018

Ada Ruby (Tater) Crill was born in Creston on January 14, 2014, the second child born to Clinton Jeffrey Crill and Anna Olivia (Waymaster) Crill. She was welcomed home by her proud parents and a brother, Cal (Bubby) Crill. Ada was baptized on April 13, 2014 at the Carl United Methodist Church. Later, Cal and Ada would welcome home their baby sister, Adlee (Mae Mae) Crill. The family made their home in rural Prescott, Iowa, in a house where a sign on the wall reads, “Love grows best in little houses like this.” For all of Ada’s four years in her little house full of love, she grew daily; surrounded by friends and family, many of whom lived just down the gravel road. Family was an integral theme in her life and Ada loved to play outside with her cousins and siblings. “Tater” was an active girl, doing all things that kids do. Ada looked at the world with a genuine sense of wonderment; her big ocean blue eyes were always shining bright as she sang her favorite songs from all Disney movies. She enjoyed blowing bubbles, playing with sidewalk chalk, and playing on the swing. She loved to paint and color, watch TV and movies, and loved anything “Princess.” She loved animals of all kinds, even asking for a hippo for Christmas. A total snuggle bunny, Ada greeted everyone she knew with a big hug and left them with a sweet kiss. She was an old soul who appreciated a slower pace and didn’t shy away from relishing the comforts of a soft couch and warm blankie. Ada was looking forward to starting Preschool this Fall in Lenox. While we only had her for such a short time, we take comfort in that she lived so big for someone so small. On a sunny evening in May, Ada left this world just the way she came into it – giggling.
The family members who remain to cherish Ada’s memory include her parents, Clint and Anna Crill; her protective brother Cal, and adoring baby sister Adlee, and the unborn baby who we believe only Ada has met, that will join the family in September, all of Prescott, Iowa; maternal grandparents, Rick and Reesa Waymaster of Council Bluffs, Iowa; paternal grandparents, Jeff and Martha Crill of Corning, Iowa; her great-grandparents: Virginia Scott of Russell, Kansas; Gloria Waymaster of Bunker Hill, Kansas and Don Crill of Prescott, Iowa. Ada’s aunts and uncles: Ashley and Brandyn Crill of Prescott, Iowa; Lara and Chase Crill of Corning, Iowa; her cousins: Hunter, Harley, Sidney, Monte and Rose Crill. God keep you until we meet you again, sweet girl, welcoming us with open arms, a beautiful halo of flowing golden curls and that pet hippo we are certain you finally got.
Ada was preceded in death by her great-grandparents: Ruby Crill; Reese Scott; Leroy Waymaster; Deane and Irene Smith; and by her great-great-grandparents: Merle Crill and Marie Houdyshell.
