Crystal was born September 27th, 1942 to Ida and Bennett Brooks. She shared her childhood with her sister, Marlita, and her teenage years with her niece, Donna and her nephew, Gary. She married Clark Brown on June 25th, 1966 and they were later blessed with one daughter, Crissida. Crystal worked at the South West Bank in Fort Worth, Clark Printing, and Wiley and Garwood P.C. as a bookkeeper, until she found her true calling in life - Retirement! She was extremely artistic and enjoyed creating stained glass masterpieces, painting, drawing, and making the most badass Halloween costumes on the planet for her spoiled rotten daughter, Crissida (as well as some of her friends). She never met a challenge she couldn’t tackle, and those who were brave (or stupid) enough to challenge HER, swiftly found that their only grace at that point came from the Lord. Despite her misleadingly petite stature she struck fear into even the biggest attitudes with her patented stern look, and trademark “I’m disappointed in you” speech. Known as the “old cat whisperer” to the local veterinarian, she enjoyed taking care of several sick cats and dogs. She enjoyed spending time with her daughter, and challenged her daily with as much nagging as possible. Always one to share, she would often extend the nagging to include her honorary second daughter, Heather, in these sessions with regards to her “very dangerous camping” adventures. Crissida will miss that dearly since she and her mom were the very best of friends. Crystal lived a long healthy life that she attributed to cigarettes and really sweet iced tea. She was a kind, loving, and generous woman that was loved by all who knew her. Dressed to the nines no matter where she went (nails done, face on, hair perfect) she was a true lady and exemplified this to her family and friends. She was an extremely strong woman who was highly respected by her family and to whom the family turned for advice and help. She loved her daughter and gave her an enviable childhood that she can attest to. Crystal’s love for all God's creatures was unequaled. She fed the birds, squirrels, possums, raccoons, feral cats and deer. Her two dogs, Lexus and Bentley still look longingly at the door, anxiously awaiting her return. She is survived by her daughter, Crissida; cats, Snickerdoodle, Chaz and Mycroft; and her dogs, Lexus and Bentley….and some raccoons….and a couple of deer; several nieces, nephews, cousins; and a countless number of friends. Crystal conducted her life as a funny and loving person, whose love was returned by those who were lucky enough to know her. She was fortunate to live her life with a loving family and accepted the end of her life here on earth with faith, grace, dignity, and the knowledge that she would be reunited with her pets and her family (in that order). She was loved by everyone and will be forever missed by her family and friends. The family would like to extend special thanks to the nurses at the Methodist Hospital at the Medical Center, and the team at the Vitas Inpatient Hospice Unit for their exceptional compassion and respect to the family at the end of Crystal’s life here on earth.
