Crystal Lynn Nielsen, deeply devoted mother, sister, and daughter, was born May 12, 1982 in Brigham City, Utah. She was the daughter of Jon and Amy Nielsen, later adopted by Jean and Vaughn Nielsen, by whom she is preceded in death. She is survived by her three daughters, Laura Jean, Angela Marie and Breeana Jo; her siblings Cathy and John Nolte, David Nielsen, Jeffrey and Robyn Nielsen, April Higley and Kevin Sampson, Jeremiah Ashley, Danny Ashley, and Angela Kula and her aunt Marlene Johansen. She passed away March 3, 2016 surrounded by her loving family after a short illness. Crystal’s daughters describe their mother as a loving and caring support who they will miss very much. One of Crystal’s true gifts was her ability to be there for and support others through their trials. She genuinely cared about all around her and always took the time to serve her loved ones, especially her children. Crystal was very involved in the Special Olympics organizations, a community that gifted its participants with joy, friendship and a sense of self-worth. Her efforts will be remembered as deeply appreciated and effortlessly selfless. Crystal’s family was always appreciative of the unconditional devotion she showed her mother Jean, especially through the last years of her life. Crystal spent countless hours in companionship with Jean. Her daughters specifically remember Crystal bringing food to replace the retirement home dinners that Jean didn’t enjoy. We’re sure that Crystal and her parents had a very happy reunion and are glad to be together again. A viewing will be held Tuesday, March 8 from 6-8 pm at the Gillies Funeral Home in Brigham City, Utah. The funeral services will be held at 11 am on March 9 at the Country Hollow Ward, 1015 N Emerald Drive, Layton Utah.
