Welcome to Everything Croton, a collection of all things Croton--our history, our homes, our issues, our businesses, our schools--in short, EVERYTHING CROTON.
EVERYTHING CROTON has been asked to post the following from a member of Asbury: Word was received yesterday that long time Croton resident Margaret Opie passed away
yesterday at her son Marshall's home outside of Washington, DC. Her son Fred called to give former neighbors on Batten Road the information. A long time member and former choir director at Asbury United Methodist
church, she was very active in the community here until the death of her
