In Loving Memory of Crystal Annette Sandoval

With profound sadness yet gentle reverence, we bid farewell to our beloved Crystal Annette Sandoval, who peacefully departed from this world on March 15th. Crystal's life was a symphony of love, laughter, and cherished moments shared with those she held dear.

As a devoted daughter, Crystal's love knew no bounds, extending endlessly to her two remarkable sons, David and Alex, and her four beautiful grandchildren, who were the center of her universe. She absolutely loved spending time with them, going to their baseball games, dance recitals, birthday parties, having them spend the night with her. She was one special “Grammy”. She lived and breathed for her family, finding boundless joy and purpose in their happiness and well-being.
Crystal's nurturing spirit transcended familial bonds, as she embraced her brothers Joseph and Anthony with a mother's love, guiding and supporting them with unwavering devotion. Her presence was a beacon of light, bringing warmth and comfort to all who were fortunate enough to know her.

After graduating from Fillmore High School in 1981, Crystal embarked on a fulfilling career as a Clinic receptionist, where her compassion and kindness touched the lives of many at Community Memorial Hospital/Midtown Medical Group throughout Ventura County. Her radiant smile and infectious laughter had a way of brightening even the darkest of days.
Beyond her professional achievements, Crystal found solace and joy in the simple pleasures of life, whether it be indulging her love for Oldies music at concerts or embarking on memorable shopping excursions with her closest friends. Her favorite pastime was spending quality time with the “Golden Girls”, creating treasured memories filled with laughter, tears, and endless love.

Crystal's heart overflowed with warmth and generosity, her kindness touching the lives of all who had the privilege of knowing her. She was a true friend in every sense of the word—thoughtful, helpful, loving, and kind. Her spirit will continue to shine brightly in the hearts of those she leaves behind.

Though she may no longer walk among us, Crystal's memory will forever be etched in our hearts, a gentle reminder of the beauty and grace that she brought into our lives. As we gather to honor her life, let us find comfort in the memories we shared and the love that will endure for eternity.

She is preceded in death by her parents, Joe Sandoval and Dorothy Sandoval, her grandparents, Raymond and Mary Morales and Tom and Nellie Sandoval. Crystal is survived by her children, David (Nicole) Valenzuela and Alex (Mandy) Valenzuela, her grandchildren Nathan and Alexis Valenzuela, Riley and Brandon Valenzuela and her brothers Joseph Sandoval and Anthony (Jocelyn) Sandoval, along with several nieces, nephews and cousins.

A very special “thank you” to the nurses and doctors at St. John’s Hospital Sub-Acute in Camarillo and to Jocelyn Piche and Raymond and Kelly Valenzuela for their continued support, care and love throughout this difficult time that Crystal was in the hospital.

Let us come together to celebrate the remarkable life of Crystal Annette Sandoval, a beacon of light whose love will continue to illuminate our lives. Though we mourn her loss, her spirit will live on in our hearts forevermore.
A rosary in remembrance of Crystal will be held at Saint Francis of Assisi in Fillmore on Thursday, April 11th, at 6:30pm, followed by a funeral Mass on Friday, April 12th, at 10:00am.
