Chrystal Marie Shoemaker

March 3, 1986 — November 22, 2021

Chrystal Marie Shoemaker, age 35 of Richland, MI passed away November 22, 2021 due to complications from COVID-19. Chrystal, the daughter of Chris & Cathy Shoemaker was born March 3, 1986 in Marshall, Michigan.

Chrystal had a foundation of faith and accepted Jesus Christ as her savior at a young age. She loved sitting by the campfire at night, camping and hiking, something she grew to love through being a Girl Scout. She especially enjoyed gardening and going up North with her children & sister. She spent a lot of time at the beach, collecting seashells, looking for Petoskey stones and loved anything in the water. Chrystal earned her Medical Assistant degree from Ross Medical Education Center in Kalamazoo. She had goals of attending phlebotomy school and working at a hospital. She cherished time with family and always brought something delicious to share. Her first priority in life were her children; she truly treasured being a mom.

Chrystal is survived by her two children, Claire LeAnn Elliott (9) and Camden Isaiah Shoemaker-Goodwin (4); her father, Chris E. (Carrie) Shoemaker; her brother, C.J. (Kelsey) Shoemaker; her sister, Chelsea Lyne Shoemaker (Brett) Rybiski; niece and nephews, Carsten, Winnifred & Jackson; aunts Sue Cook, Carol Ferguson & Carol Ann Miller, along with many other aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

Chrystal was preceded in death by her mother, Cathy J. Shoemaker; paternal grandparents Fred Shoemaker & Opal Shoemaker and maternal grandparents Marion Miller & Joan Miller.

Per Chrystal's wishes, cremation has taken place and a memorial service is to be scheduled at a later date. Arrangements by the Farley Estes Dowdle Funeral Home & Cremation Care. Personal messages for the family may be placed at
