Crystal grew up in Cuba and was a graduate of the Class of 2002. She began working for Country Kitchen as a teen and worked for the Britton Family many years. Crystal had that certain knack that makes for a great waitress! She loved people and made her job a place to bring happiness to those she served! Crystal would later work as a well-liked bartender/server at Frisco's and Rock Fair. She was always known as the life of the party and she enjoyed going floating and traveling.
