She returned to Ottawa, where she taught at Hawthorne Elementary School for one year. She married William C. Crabb in 1951. They lived in Homewood and Gardner, Kan., before moving to Columbia in 1967.
Mrs. Crabb was a Cub Scout den mother and a Girl Scout leader, a Sunday school teacher and dedicated volunteer at First Baptist Church and Ridgeway Elementary School. An avid reader who instilled an abiding love for books in her children, Mrs. Crabb taught adults to read with the Laubach Literacy Program in the 1970s. She also authored articles about local history for the Missouri Historical Review.
It is for her love of quilting, however, that she is best known. Mrs. Crabb became passionate about quilting in the 1970s. She joined quilting circles, made dozens of quilts, taught the craft at the Quilt Cottage in Columbia, researched and wrote articles, bought every book and subscribed to every magazine on the subject. Eventually, she became a nationally recognized quilt historian, invited to lecture and judge contests across the Midwest and the nation. In 1993, she co-authored a book called "A Patchwork of Pieces," an anthology of quilt literature from 1845 to 1940, with Cuesta Benberry.

Mrs. Crabb strongly believed that homemade was better than store-bought. This applied to everything from baked goods to Halloween costumes to Christmas cards. When her children were young, vacation destinations were campgrounds in national parks and historic sites across America.

The Mt. Sterling Tribune has the following account of the death of Osman Crabb on the 13 inst.: The many friends in this community of Uncle Osman Crabb were greatly surprised and pained to hear the report Sunday that he suddenly fell dead on the porch at his home just after he had eaten a hearty breakfast that morning. He was an old man and a much respected citizen of this and adjoining counties. He was in Sterling Saturday, the day before his death, feeling unusually well and in apparent good spirits. He was aged about 74 years and leaves a widow and several children, among whom are Thomas Crabb, merchant, of this place and Frank, with whom the old folks made their home. For several years he has failed in health and has at times complained of feeling smothered and a choking sensation signifying heart trouble, the direct cause of his death, undoubtedly. He was a consistent member of the M.E. Church, and formerly was a faithful attendant. While it is painful and sad that he was taken without any warning, yet no one was better prepared, and had their work more completed than Uncle Osman. The widow, children and relatives have the heartfelt sympathy of the entire community in their affliction. His funeral was preached at his late residence on Monday last and the body interred in Pleasant cemetery.
