WEST POINT — Twyla Crouch Otto, age 79, passed away at home at 5:10 pm on April 11, 2022. She was preceded in death by her parents, Ivan and Maude Crouch, her son, Leonard Christopher Otto and her sister, Charlotte Otto.

Twyla was a homemaker with a lot of “spunk & spirit” raising three children. Prior to her children being born, she worked for her aunt, Hattie Wallace, at DMV for a time and selling Avon products.

The family enjoyed summer camping trips to all sorts of historical places starting off sleeping in a tent with cots and then graduating to a pop-up. One of her favorite trips was to see the Statler Brothers in concert on the 4th of July in Staunton with family and friends. She and Leonard also had great fun going on bus trips to different places.
