Celebrate the Life of Crystal White

Donation protected
My name is Angelina Cruz, and I am Crystal White's sister. She was tragically murdered in Lawrence, Kansas, on her 51st birthday - February 22nd, 2024.

The purpose of this GoFundMe is to cover cremation costs and the Celebration of Life Memorial Service on March 3rd. Any surplus funds will support community initiatives in Crystal's memory.

Despite experiencing homelessness and battling the effects of trauma and mental illness, Crystal was a beloved daughter, sister, aunt, cousin, mother, and friend. Her life mattered, and her loss has left a profound void in our hearts. We desire that this loss ultimately raises awareness about the urgent need for community action.

I cherished my sister deeply. Though we didn't always see eye to eye, our love for each other never faltered. Our bond was unbreakable. Crystal was incredibly loving and generous. She would selflessly give everything she had to ensure someone else's happiness. Her love knew no bounds. What a remarkable person she was at the core. I will forever love her and deeply miss her.

As her family, we are coming together to celebrate her life and ensure she receives the farewell she deserves on Sunday, March 3, 2024, from 4:00 – 9:00 p.m. at Mama’s Tamale Shop, 602 W. 9th St, Lawrence, KS 66044. Friends in the community are invited to join us in honoring her memory. Crystal leaves behind a legacy of love and resilience despite the hardships she faced throughout her life. She was more than just a statistic.

Your support will not only assist us in honoring Crystal's memory but also in amplifying our message of compassion and solidarity. Together, let's work towards improving standards of living and quality of life for ALL people, irrespective of their current situation or past struggles.

Crystal's story serves as a reminder that every human life is precious and valuable, regardless of circumstance. We hope her tragic passing sparks a collective awakening in our community, urging us to unite and advocate for the well-being of all individuals, especially those experiencing homelessness.

Thank you for standing with us in this important mission.
