Crystal Ann Clark died January 5, 2022, in Longview. She was born at Cowlitz General Hospital in Longview on October 26, 1969, to Robert and Linda Clark. She grew up in Cathlamet, spending her time at Marie’s where her Grandma Wendell cooked, at her grandparents house by the marina, on the island at the beach, and hanging out with her friends. She enjoyed spending summers at the county fair, the coast, camping with her family, and holidays in Toledo with her Grandma Rosalie and extended family. She graduated from Wahkiakum High School in 1988. After living in Miami Beach, FL with her sister, she returned to the Longview/Kelso area in 1992 where she had the first of three girls and became an independent in-home caregiver, working with Elder Options. Crystal loved her family, the beach on both sides of the country, her dog KeeKee, and was a good friend to many.
