Crystal Nicole Smith Newman
Crystal Nicole, also known as "Tooter" to many of her friends and family was a wonderful and kind soul. She was born November 24, 1992 in Natchez, MS and passed away unexpectedly on December 11, 2022, also in Natchez, MS, at the young age of 30. She was a loving and kind person, always ready to help anyone in need. She spent the last several years living in Clayton, LA with her special friend Noel Breland. She loved to do arts and crafts, such as painting pictures, drawing, baking birthday cakes and cookies for her loved ones and friends and helping with decorations for special days and holidays.
She also loved spending time with her family and friends, always smiling, laughing, and playing around. Her favorite pass-time hobby was going fishing. If she overheard anyone mention fishing, she was ready to go. You could always see her outside with a shovel and bucket digging worms, getting the bait ready for the next fishing trip. She loved the Lord and was of the Baptist Faith. She mentioned many times that someday she would be reunited with her precious twins, Alyssa and Bryan, that she had missed so badly. She was loved by many and will live on in all of our memories.
Crystal is preceded in death by her twin babies, Alyssa Brooke and Bryan Edward Newman, Jr.; grandparents, O.G. and Etha Smith, Donald Thornhill, Sr.; step-grandfather, Edward Ray Johnson; and uncle, Bull Thornhill.
Survivors include: parents, Joel and Donna Smith; brothers, Joel Smith, Jr. and Joshua Smith; sister, Tiffany Pettengill and husband Vernon; grandmother, Sadie Thornhill; uncles, Tony Thornhill and wife Stacey, and Danny Thornhill; aunt, Shirley Durham; special friend, Noel Breland; several cousins and nephews and many other friends and family, and her "fur babies" that she loved so much, "Roxie, Bella, and Daisy".
A memorial service will be held at a later date.
