Crystal was born on December 14, 1987, to Stephen and Mary (Cox) Perry, of Goldsboro, NC, to whom she was the youngest of five children.


Crystal attended Wayne County Schools where she excelled academically and was a cheerleader and basketball player.  Crystal was a brave, outgoing soul who was driven by an irrepressible adventurous spirt that continuously enabled her to follow her heart and live life exactly how she desired.  More than anything else, she loved the beach and for a while, established a household with her children at Carolina Beach, NC.  Crystal will always be remembered for her huge heart that would help anyone she thought needed it; friends, family, and strangers alike. 

In addition to her parents, Crystal is survived by her beautiful children, Adriana Austin, Isabella Perry, and Gabriel Perry; her brother, Tavaris Martin; her sisters, Latressa Martin, Adriene (Jonathan) Simms, and Kairene Perry; her aunts, Carolyn Bryant, Mable Williams, Tawanna Cox, Sarah (Curt) Eason, Deborah (Charlie) Adams, and Gwendolyn Mitchell (Honorary Aunt); her uncles, Dallas (Jean) Cox, Gregory Perry, Wendell (Theresa) Perry, Kenneth (Angela) Kornegay, and Joel (Angela) Perry; and many cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends, all of whom she loved deeply, including her very special godson and cousin, Jamison Chase.

Throughout her life, Crystal attended the Sheepfold Church of Jesus in Goldsboro NC.  Prior to leaving this world, Crystal fully acknowledged our Lord Jesus Christ and faithfully placed her life in his hands.
