The Story

Maria "Janie" Crooms lived her life according to the spirit of her first business venture "Quest for the Best" a vintage jewelry and clothing business.  Maria was a Loving Wife, Mother, Grandmother & Great Grandmother  to all her offspring.  After a long and torturous battle with cancer she can finally rest... yet the energy from her spirit shall continue to shine and comfort our heavy hearts forever more.

Maria "Janie" Crooms was born in New Mexico and raised in East Oakland, CA.  She spent a much her life in the 62nd Ave section of East Oakland and also the place where she went to school and raised her family.  My mother was a 30 year business owner of a successful vintage jewelry and collectible venture that was her passion and creative outlet.  Spending time with family and friends was always her first priority as she was actively involved in all our lives.  Hawaii, Spain, Las Vegas and an European Tour was all part of her recent travels with her dear friends and family.

Maria was preceded in death by her high school sweetheart, Michael A. Crooms Sr., (2004) and they were married for 35 years and loved each other dearly. 

We have started this fundraiser for those who wish to help alleviate some of the financial hardships that the family is experiencing in this already difficult time and we thank you in advance for your support.
