Family's ties to Pittsford sparked by cobblestone school
. . .
"Among the members of the second generation was Samuel L. Crump, who married Ella Mae Sackett. They raised their kids with certain expectations, such as no squabbling among the siblings, and they did not tolerate unkind words.
"The family was struck with tragedy in 1936 when Samuel L. Crump committed suicide in the house. Eloise Terho, his daughter, was in the laundry room when she heard the shot. After her mother told her what happened, she prayed by the window that her father would be all right, but he died from the bullet shot to the head.
"But sometimes a traumatic incident can bring a family even closer. To provide for the family, Ella Mae Sackett Crump turned her home into a boarding house.
"My childhood really ended when my dad took his life," said Terho of Pittsford, who was 13 at the time of the suicide. "But I used to sleep in the same bed as my mom, and at night is when she would really talk to me about how she was feeling about everything. We bonded and kept each other strong."
Her mother also ran the Pittsford school cafeteria, working many long hours to provide additional support for the family. Terho said growing up in this situation forced her to be tougher as well as willing to explore new avenues in life. She went into the Navy during World War II and became a teacher in the Gates Chili, Greece and Pittsford school districts. She also traveled to Finland, Australia, New Zealand, Alaska and Spain.
"Family history is something that you can not change," said Terho, now 89. "It undoubtedly changes who you are, but that can be for the better, like it did for me. My history has a lot to do with the kind of person I am."
For her brother's part, David Crump worked at the Pittsford Dairy for 60 hours a week during his teenage years. He would then give the $10 a week to his mom. He said it means something to be part of a family that helped form Pittsford.
"I am absolutely proud about what my family has done," said David Crump. "I know when it comes to my side, I may be the last one to live in Pittsford. I blame it on a family trip when I took my kids to the South. They loved it so much they all decided to live in Florida."

Eloise was generous with her time and her heart, and made it a point to attend and support the endeavors of all her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She loved to laugh and tell stories and talk about anything and everything ? especially sports! She will be remembered fondly by her students and friends, and deeply missed by her family.
