Our beautiful Chrystal passed away very peacefully surrounded by her loving family on Monday, November 13, 2023. She has gone to be where there is no more pain, to that special room prepared for her by our Lord. A kind, compassionate, very loving, and strong 50 year-old. Proud and loving mother of Victoria (Grayson Thompson) and Elizabeth. Beloved daughter of Wayne and Lorna (nee Wilson) Affleck and loving sister of Darryl (Danielle). Cherished and much-loved aunt of Kylie, Megan and Grayson Affleck. Loved niece of Gail and Oliver Toop, Brian and Kim Affleck, Lloyd Wilson (late Mary), and Wendy Mitchell (Carl). She will be lovingly remembered by her many cousins, nieces, and friends. Chrystal will be dearly missed by Syband Russett, with whom she shared a special relationship, and by his sister Dorothy. Predeceased by Uncle Bob (Diane) and Uncle Gordon Wilson, and Aunt Nancy (nee Wilson) Fielding. Loving granddaughter of the late George and Margaret (nee Munro) Affleck and the late Lorne and Audrey (nee Portioues) Wilson.
In her younger years Chrystal enjoyed ballet, piano, step dancing, skiing and ringette. After attending Algonquin College, she operated her own Home Daycare. Later on she developed a love for baking and designing specialty cakes for people. She enjoyed the great outdoors, fishing, camping and hunting. She aced three deer, one being an 8-point buck. So proud!
